2015 Emmy Awards
Our favourite TV stars dazzled at Sunday’s 67th Primetime Emmy Awards in Lose Angeles. As the small screen icons descended on the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater, we kept a close eye our for the 2015 Emmy Awards’ most stylish attendees.
Leading the way for British style were Cat Deeley and Joanne Froggatt, who both wore their locks in laid-back textured tousles – a key trend for autumn/winter 2015. Cat upped the glamour with a deep side parting and glossy finish to complement her glitzy metallic number from Monique Lhullier. Joanne meanwhile went for a more beachy, boho take on the trend with matte texture and a flowing dusky pink and black strappy gown.
Achieving their textured style is simple. Prep damp hair with a texturiser like DESIGNLINE Held Up Texturizing Paste and blast dry. Mist over the all-important heat protect spray before loosely tonging 3-4 inch sections of hair using a curling wand like the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand. Alternate the direction of your curls for a more effortless, bed-head finish. Once the hair has cooled, run your fingers through the curls to soften them. Seal with a spritz of hold spray: go for high shine with the Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray or invisible hold with Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity depending on your desired finish.
Classic low buns and ponytails are making a comeback for AW15 and Heidi Klum and Jessica Paré showed us how it’s done with their super-sleek, almost wet-look updos. It’s all about the right preparation to perfect this look. Work a setting gel or cream through damp hair like Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream which hydrates your hair and calms frizz. Blow dry smooth using a large barrel brush before creating your style of choice. Finish by running over your ‘do with a wax stick like TIGI Bed Head Wax Stick to smooth down any flyaways.
Glamorous Hollywood curls were another popular style. Christina Hendricks went for luscious, voluminous curls – the ghd Curve Classic Curl Tong is perfect for creating this look. (See our video tutorial for tips on how to get the best results.) Gwendoline Christie channelled 1920s flapper style with her elegant waves – a stunning look for shorter tresses.
