It was red carpet time in Hollywood last Sunday night for the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards. All of TV”s biggest celebrities showed up amidst a heat wave in L.A. As you likely know, the Emmy’s celebrate TV’s best with roasting and toasting, and everyone shows up looking their best. Looking your best doesn’t end with a dress and diamond earrings. We take a look at celebrity hair at the Emmy Awards in today’s hair blog.
There was no doubt, from what we saw on Sunday, that waves (whether loose and beachy or vintage inspired) was the stars’ favourite look. Some notable styles were seen on Emma Roberts, Sarah Hyland (pictured above) and Kerry Washington (below).
Their waved hair had just the right amount of elegance and “undoneness” that has swept through Hollywood lately. Even updos had a disheveled, soft feel to them as we saw on Tina Fey and Naomi Watts.
Texture is added to the hair then it is loosely pinned off the face. Soft updos like these can have a very romantic, rustic feel to them and can be paired with any outfit or look.
The “faux Bob” seemed to be a big go-to look on Sunday as well. Deep waves with pinned-under ends made this up/down ‘do glamorous and edgy at the same time.
Want to try these looks at home? You will need a few things to get you started: a round brush, curling wand or iron, and some bobby pins. Always start with a good blow dry, using your round brush for volume. Next, curl your hair away from your face, with all curls going in the same direction from one side all the way around to the other. Smooth over with your round brush to soften the curls and finish with beach spray for undone waves or use hair spray to keep those vintage waves in place. For the faux Bob look, grab a large section of hair from underneath, starting from the top of the ear to the other. Roll this section up to the base and secure it with pins. Set with finishing spray, and voila! You’re red carpet ready!
