Tips To Create “Emmy-Worthy” Hair.

By now, we all know who won in the Lead Actress categories at the Emmy Awards last night. But as we normally see our favorite "characters" and not the actresses strolling the red carpet, I thought this feature would be fun. My friends at Aussie and their celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa, have put together some how-to's for our favorite actresses that were all nominated last night.


The Look: Smooth, Sleek and Serious
There is no messing around with this simple, yet sleek look that can be worn day or night. The key is to lock in moisture and keep the frizz out.

Holly Hunter, Nominee for Best Actress, Drama - Saving Grace

  • Spray Aussie’s Sydney Smooth Tip Protector + Leave-In Conditioner to damp hair and blow-dry with a round brush.

  • Always hold the nozzle of the blow dryer parallel to the hair, not pointing directly at it, which can cause over-heating and damage.

  • After styling with a flat iron, spritz 12hr Anti Humidity Hair Spray all over hair to prevent frizz and lock in your style for up to 12 hours!


The Look: Carefree Curls
Let loose and bring out your hair’s natural wave while keeping that touchable soft feel that you crave. (natural styling differentiates this look from the sassy swirls)

  • Towel dry wet hair and spray Aussie’s Opposites Attract Spray Gel evenly throughout. This gel is soft, flexible, and will not leave the hair crunchy.

  • Scrunch hair with a towel and you will be amazed at how easy it is to get those perfect beachy waves

  • If you wash your hair at night, wrap half dry hair into multiple buns to create this long-lasting look.

The Look: Sassy Swirls
This is an easy look that makes long lasting curls appear as feminine and flirty as these Emmy-nominated actresses.

  • Make a definite clean side part with a tail comb.

  • Apply Aussie’s Opposites Attract Styling Mousse through the sections with your fingers.

  • Blow dry loosely and when the hair is about 80% dry, section into 4 large sections, polish and finish drying with a round brush.

  • Wrap small sections around a closed 1” curling iron, away from the face to create loose waves.
