What Hairstyles Will TV’s Funny Girls Rock at the Emmys?


As we count down to Emmy night on Sunday, we’re turning to the experts to gain their insight on the ‘dos TV’s best will pair with their glittering gowns. This time we turned to Herbal Essences Celebrity Stylist, Charles Baker Strahan to see what styles he think the small screen’s class clowns will get dolled up in for the red carpet and how to recreate the look yourself:

Laura Dern – I would love to see Laura Dern’s hair reflect that old Hollywood glamour that we love to see at award shows. Slightly structured waves that are off her face with soft, touchable volume would be perfect for her – think of a modern day Rita Hayworth. A flexible hairspray such as Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Hairspray would be perfect to create a boost of lightweight volume that lasts throughout the night.

Lena Dunham– Who doesn’t love Lena Dunham's shorter hair? I would love to see it with a slightly more tousled edge and a bit of volume. Also, a fringe would really play up her eyes. Finishing her style with a texturizing wax would give it that amazing texture and keep it moveable and voluminous throughout the night.

Edie Falco – I would love to see Edie Falco wear her hair blown out with soft, touchable volume. This style is all about healthy, shiny hair so starting in the shower with a collection like the new Herbal Essences Moroccan My Shine would give her blowout a beautiful glossy base.

Amy Poehler – I am so excited to be working with Amy Poehler for this year’s Emmys! We often change up her look and she can go in a couple different directions depending on what she decides to wear. She has a natural wave to her hair, so maybe we play that up with soft, loose waves. I also love her hair in a low, full ponytail with a sweeping fringe to frame her face. I might have a trick or two up my sleeve, so you’ll have to wait and see!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus – I really like Julia Louis Dreyfus’s shorter cut! I could see her wearing a soft wave with a deep side part, tucked clean behind one ear to really highlight her face. To control the volume of this style, pin curl the hair after applying Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Smoothing Mousse. This mousse has a built-in serum to provide control but keep the waves soft and touchable.
