Ryan 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.
