Get The Look: Claire Dane’s Soft Waves At The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards
I don’t know about you, but on Sunday night my social media feeds were buzzing with talk of the glam red carpet fashion and beauty looks from the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.
One of my favorite beautynistas, Claire Danes looked effortlessly chic with her soft flowing waves and glowing face accentuated by light smokey eye makeup.
Claire’s lovely tresses were styled by celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler using John Frieda products. Butler said that inspiration for the look was her marigold strapless dress by Lanvin, which allowed him to channel “Veronica Lake to create elegant yet-natural waves.”
I’m all for glam hair that’s easy to achieve, but looks like it took hours to complete! Here’s how you can get the look for yourself.
Step 1 – Prep
- Achieving old Hollywood hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways and frizz. Start by evenly applying 10 drops of Frizz-Ease® Sheer SolutionTM Lightweight Frizz Control ($9.99 at drugstores) from the roots to the ends on damp hair. Next apply a handful of Frizz-Ease® Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99 at drugstores) and comb through hair to uniformly distribute.
Step 2 – Style
- Find a good deep side part. Veronica Lake always had a strong side part which is what made her look so sexy. Start with curling the section right above your ear. Use a 1″ barrel curling iron and in small sections wrap hair forward around the barrel towards your face. Continue one curl after the other in the exact same pattern until the whole head is complete. After everything cools, take the fine side of your comb and start combing through the curls. As you comb around the entire head, the curl pattern will start to join together – break up the pattern with your fingers to create natural flowing waves.
Step 3 – Perfect
- To finish, mist a thin coat of Frizz-Ease® Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) in an even, all-around motion, to set the look.
Not everyone can pull off this look, but Claire made it look easy, and the best part? She looked amazing while accepting the awards for best actress in a drama for her role in the series “Homeland.”
