Top trends you can do at home
Emmy style

Here are my top picks for award-winning hair -- and luckily they are all pretty simple to recreate at home!

Center parts

Worn by:

  • Julia Louis Dreyfus and Allison Williams with a sleek, low bun
  • Emilia Clarke with half pulled back
  • Jane Krakowski with a bouncy blow out
  • Nicole Kidman blown out super smooth and flat

To achieve at home:

  1. After applying a styling product, part the hair smack down the middle!

  4. Finish by using a curling iron or flat iron, depending on the desired look.
