SI: The world needs to know how to achieve the Kate Bock hairstyle. What is your daily routine to get that iconic hair?
KB: Iconic? Wow, I’m flattered! I have become a curling iron wizard. (I use a medium barrel T3 iron) I blow dry my hair (not well, just to dry it with a middle part) and wave it with curling iron. I find it relaxing and I end up with my big, full, bombshell waves ... so it’s a win win!
