Emmy style

The Emmys are always fun to watch -- some look out for the stylish threads or mod makeup, but for me, it is all about the hair. Emmy tresses are always a hot indicator of trends to come for fall. From Hollywood darling Zooey Deschanel and her perfect bangs to va-va-voom star Christina Hendricks and her retro waves, these red carpet stand outs were the "mane" attraction.
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!

Heavy bangs

Worn by:

  • The queen of perfect heavy bangs, Zooey Deschanel
  • Hannah Simone
  • Jena Malone

How to achieve at home:

  1. Have your stylist cut them for you!
  2. Dry them using a flat brush and brush back and forth using the curve of your forehead to achieve a slight bend in the ends.
  3. Do not use a round brush; you'll have bubble bangs. Not cute!
  4. The ends of your eyebrows are a good guide for how wide the bangs should be cut.
  5. Use the bridge of your nose as a guide for length.
  6. Most stylists do complimentary bang trims, so take advantage of this!


Also, I have a little celeb hair stylist secret for you. When my clients can’t commit to cutting bangs, I always recommend a clip in bang. My favorite is from Hot Heads. It looks natural and the best part is that it's temporary.

This fall, go ahead and rock these three trending lock looks from the Emmys and I can guarantee you’ll feel like you’re having a red carpet moment all season long.
