Get The Look: Sarah Hyland’s Chic Emmy Awards Bun

Sarah Hyland hairRyan Richman created Sarah Hyland’s beauty look for the 2014 Emmy Awards.

“As a team, we were inspired by old Hollywood glamour. We loved Sarah’s custom-made Christian Siriano dress. I never want to be too literal with inspiration so we kept the look soft and natural to keep it modern.”

He began by applying 3-4 pumps of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment to her damp hair to add softness and shine without weighing it down and to protect it while blow drying.

Before blow drying each section, he applied a pump of Dove Frizz-Free Shine Serum to smooth frizz and flyaways.

Then he began blow drying large sections of hair using a large boar-bristle round brush, directing the hair away from the face. A boar-bristle brush is great for polishing and smoothing the hair while still maintaining body and some natural texture.

When styling a ponytail or bun you should blow dry the hair towards the centre point of where the hair will be put up, and use a straightening iron on medium heat to smooth any cowlicks or kinks around the hairline.

Next, he brushed the hair upwards towards the top of the head. He then used Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray as he was brushing to keep the hair in place. A great way to smooth flyaways while brushing is to spray hairspray directly onto the brush.

Then Ryan secured the hair in a ponytail with an elastic. To make tying your ponytail easier, bend over forwards and gather the hair instead of trying to reach high above your head.

To add texture to your bun, backcomb the ponytail with a brush and spray with hairspray. Finally, twist and wrap the hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins. You can pull out small pieces of hair with your fingertips or a rattail comb for an edgy undone look.

“Jessica’s gorgeous, form-fitting, electric-blue Zac Posen dress had a classic silhouette, so I thought that glamorous rocker hair would be a great contrast” said Davy.

Here’s how to get the look.

Davy began by prepping Jessica’s wet hair with Honest Conditioning Mist, then sprayed Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves Tousled Texture Spray throughout the hair and rough-dried it, utilizing the natural texture.

He then used a large round brush around her face and then created a centre part.

Next, he lightly brushed the hair with a Mason Pearson Brush and took a small amount of Alterna Bamboo Form Sculpting Clay and ran it through random pieces for added texture.

Hair Trend Spotting: Messy Braided Ponytails

Hair Trend Spotting Messy Braided Ponytails

Keeping your locks under control in the humid weather has never been easy; however, Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale and Shay Mitchell found the perfect solution for their red carpet looks at the Teen Choice Awards: braided ponytails.

Last year braids were worn as tight and as sleek as possible, whereas this spring braids are going to be the complete opposite as this trend is more laidback and relaxed, reliving the romantic medieval style.

Opting for long, chunky, messy and romantic braids shows a much more youthful approach to a classic updo.

Other stars who have championed the messy, romantic braid this year, during Cannes, include Blake Lively and Eva Longoria.

Here’s how to create the look.

Create a side part and add texture with a wide-barrel curling iron, making sure to curl from the top. Lightly tease hair at the crown, then split your hair into two sections.

Keeping your hair on the side of the part, begin to braid by pulling a bit of hair from the outside of one section over to the centre of the other section, then repeat for the other side and continue until your braid is the desired length.

Once you’ve reached the bottom, fasten the braid with an elastic. Loosen the braid by lightly tugging on outer sections throughout.

FOX's 2014 Teen Choice Awards - ArrivalsCelebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell worked with Chloe Grace Moretz for the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.

“We wanted to create effortless, messy, bed-head texture for Chloe’s Valentino look at the Teen Choice Awards”, said Gregory.

Here’s how to get Chloe’s look.

He first blew out Chloe’s hair with a ceramic brush and then parted and sectioned the hair in half. Spraying each section with Kevin Murphy Damage Manager, he then twisted the hair away from her face, holding the ends and hitting the twists with diffused heat from a Harry Josh Blow Dryer and Hot Sock attachment.

After cooling, he brushed out with his fingers and used a 1.25″ iron to curl in the opposite direction at random. He then loosened the waves more by pulling down the ends with his hands and hitting them with the diffused heat again for a more lived-in look.

Next, he sprayed her hair with Klorane Dry Shampoo for dry, messy texture, finishing with Leonor Greyl Eclat Naturel through the ends and Kerastase Laque Couture Hairspray for hold.

Beauty Trend Spotting Sleek Ponytails2

Many celebs are making a usually casual hairstyle red carpet worthy by slicking strands back to perfection. Pulling your hair back is an easy go-to, but these tips will take your look to the next level. Take note from Jennifer Lopez, Holland Roden, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Marano who are each showing us how it’s done.

Celebrity hair and makeup artist, Valerie Noble, shared her favorite tips to achieving a polished pony in a few easy steps. For Vanessa’s hair, Noble started with Redken Glass 01 Smoothing Anti Frizz Serum. A product like this is crucial to the style as it not only keeps frizz at bay for those with curlier textures, it will also tame flyaways.

Next, flat iron hair bone straight. Smoothing out every curl is key to creating a sleek end product. Opt for a small 1 inch iron and focus on the roots and slightly bend ends.

Once hair is straight gather all pieces. Noble says to, “brush all the hair up, just below the crown.” Location, location, location, is very important for today’s it ponytail. Placing too high can easily turn ‘80’s, so we recommend a mid to lower placement. Gather strands using Hair Bungees. Noble used them for Vanessa’s thick hair. Hair Bungees are perfect for thick hair and give more control over desired tightness. And if your ponytail isn’t as thick as you’d like, try adding clip-in extensions.

Lastly, you’ll want to secure your work with both Redken Outshine 01 Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk and Redken’s Quick Dry 18 Instant Finishing Spray. They not only holds hair, providing long lasting results, both will also add a healthy shine to your finished look.
