The 74th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held Monday, September 12th and celebrities were dressed to impress! From top knots to grunge blowouts, we have step-by-step details on how to re-create some of these chic red carpet hairstyles for your clients.
Get the look: Lizzo’s Ballerina Top Knot
Celebrity hairstylist Shelby Swain gave Lizzo a sleek yet playful ballerina-esque top knot for the Emmy awards. This shiny and slick look was the perfect contrast to Lizzo’s bold couture red gown by Giambattista Valli.
Step 1: On washed and conditioned hair, Swain prepped Lizzo’s natural hair with a leave-in conditioner. This helped to prepare her hair for straightening while preventing damage from heat styling.
Step 2: As Swain blow dried Lizzo’s hair, she directed the hair up into the position where the top knot would be placed.
Step 3: After the hair was completely dry, Swain straightened the hair and continued to direct it upwards into the top knot position.
Step 4: Once straightened, Swain secured the ponytail with a coated elastic ponytail holder and began to create the knot using hairspray and securing with hair pins.
Step 5: After securing the knot with hair pins, Swain perfected any loose strands of hair by spraying them with hairspray.
Get the look: Juno Temple’s 90’s Blowout
Celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak was inspired by Juno Temple’s designer Tom Ford to create her look for the Emmy awards. Roszak looked to Tom Ford’s archived looks from the 90’s and was inspired to create a soft grunge supermodel look to complement the dress.
Step 1: First, Roszak prepped the hair with styling oil and blew out her hair as smooth as possible while still keeping a little bit of volume at the roots.
Step 2: From there, she took a flat iron and straightened sections. The goal was to add sleekness to the look without removing any of the natural volume created from the blowout. Roszak was able to achieve this by flat ironing the pieces around the face, some pieces underneath, and occasionally on the ends.
Step 3: After this, Roszak used the dry shampoo to roughen up the roots and add a bit of volume and texture.
Step 4: Next she sprayed Temple’s hair all over with hairspray and shine mist to ensure the look did not frizz throughout the night.
Step 5: To complete the look, Rosazk finally added a little bit of an oil treatment on her fingertips to pick out a few hair pieces. Juno’s hair is very curly, so this final touch helps add some more moisture to the ends.
Get the look: Kayley Cuoco’s Sophisticated Low Knot
Celebrity hairstylist Christine Symonds created a chic and effortless low knot for Kayley Cuoco’s red carpet look. This classic look paired with Cuoco’s fringe is sophisticated yet fun and compliments her Barbie-pink custom gown by Dolce and Gabbana.
Step 1: First, Symonds prepped Kaley’s hair with a thermal shine spray and leave-in styling treatment to prep for heat styling.
Step 2: Next, Symonds blow dried Cuoco’s hair to add volume and create softness.
Step 3: After the hair was completely dry, Symonds pulled her hair back in a loose low pony but didn’t pull all the way through on the second wrap to leave a knot.
Step 4: Symonds kept out her bangs and added some final touches by applying thermal shine spray to make sure everything stayed in place.
