Kerry Washington has to have "big hair" when she's pregnant.

The 39-year-old actress - who is expecting her second child with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha - has admitted she "likes" to have voluminous locks when she is "expecting" because it makes her appear to have a smaller frame.

Speaking about her beauty hacks to InStyle magazine, the brunette beauty said: "When I'm expecting, I like to have big hair because I like to think the bigger the hair the smaller you look."

And the 'Scandal' star has revealed she thinks people get "too overdressed" for red carpet events, and would prefer to not adorn extravagant gowns for star studded events so often.

She explained: "I feel like sometimes we get way too overdressed for awards shows and there's too many of them."

Although Kerry has admitted the pink Prada ballgown she adorned at the Met Gala in 2015,a and the simplistic make-up, is her favourite ensemble she has worn to date.

She said: "I really liked that this look was so clean. I loved this look because it was really sophisticated and yet simple.

"The make-up was elevated and princess-like, but didn't distract from the gown."

Meanwhile Kerry - who married the former San Francisco 49ers cornerback in 2013, who she already has a two-year-old daughter Isabelle with - has revealed motherhood has completely changed her life.

Speaking previously, the New York-born beauty said: "You know it [motherhood] just turns your world upside down in the most beautiful way. She [Isabelle] makes me better, I hope, every day. I feel very lucky to be her mum.

"I will say I feel really, really blessed. I just feel really blessed that I'm kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life."
