There certainly was a dominating look to the red carpet hairstyles for the Emmy Awards this year … the elegant updo is back. We've become accustomed to seeing hair being worn down at red carpet events so it was a pleasant surprise to see so many fabulous updos!
Girl of the moment, Zoe Deschanel, chose a stunning vintage inspired red carpet hairstyle that worked perfectly with her Reem Acra lilac, floor length gown. Her hair was pulled back and given lots of lift at the root, this was pinned in the centre of the head; the lengths of her hair were then rolled at the nape of the neck and pinned up. Such a cute look that was made famous by the Hollywood greats of the 1950s.
Mad Men actress, Jessica Pare, also took inspiration from the 1950's; her makeup and red carpet hairstyle looked very Grace Kelly. She wore a stunning retro updo with beautiful dark glossy locks and a beautiful white, Grecian Jason Wu gown … her styling ensured she looked every inch a vinatge vixen. We have to say … we are LOVING these vintage inspired red carpet hairstyles for the Emmy Awards, ladies. Kudos!
Another updo that had taken inspiration from vintage styles was worn by Julianne Hough. Wearing a stunning sea foam Georges Hobeika Couture gown, Julianne added 1920's finger waves to a faux bob. The style looks simply stunning with her newly blonde shade, especially as we are used to seeing Julianne with dark, long locks left down. The faux bob is a great way of trying out a shorter style without the commitment of having your hair cut off and its so easy to do. Try this look out with our easy faux bob hair tutorial.
Hayden Panettiere looked lovely in a gold-embroidered Marchesa gown with a blue tulle overlay. With such a detailed dress, Hayden's messy high bun worked perfectly as this drew all the attention to stunning back detail of the dress.
We are loving the mass return of the updo and with many more red carpet events fast approaching, we can’t wait to see more updos springing up on the celebs.
