Our favorite Hollywood starlets were out on the red carpet for the 2014 Emmy Awards. While everyone else stalked the Internet to figure out who wore what, I was making sure you beauties knew exactly how to recreate a few of my favorite hairstyles from the red carpet.
My first favorite of the evening was the 2014 Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series Winner,Uzo Aduba.
“Our look tonight was ‘classic beauty’! A soft, simple pulled back bun with a little volume, to keep it soft at the crown. Very glamorous & chic!” – celebrity stylist, Jamika Wilson
CLEANSE Start with clean, dry hair – try the Motions Lavish Conditioning Shampoo
CONDITION Use Motions Moisture Plus Conditioner, comb through to detangle and ensure even distribution
TREAT Apply Motions Straight Finish Sealer to the hair to prep before blow drying straight. Next, flat iron the hair smooth making sure to leave volume across the crown, then pull hair back into a simple bun and secure with hair pins. Tip: for added volume, fluff hair with fingers at the root
FINISH Smooth sides and edges of hair at the nape of the neck using Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade and set with the Motions Light Hold Working Spritz
STYLE Finish with the Motions Oil Sheen & Conditioning Spray to keep the look natural and in place
Motions Lavish Conditioning Shampoo, Motions Moisture Plus Conditioner, Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade, Motions Light Hold Working Spritz and Motions Oil Sheen & Conditioning Spray ($3.99 each) and Motions Straight Finish Sealer ($6.99)
From on the red carpet to just being Keke on 106 & Park, she’s one of my favorites and I’ve loved watching her grow up. Keke Palmer has been absolutely nailing every single appearance. Tonight was no different.
“Tonight we decided to go with a simple, chic variation of an”up do” to complement the dress. From the front, the style is very simply pulled back, but once she turns around, you’ll see the interesting detail we created at the back. A classic style, with a twist…literally. – celebrity stylist, Cynthia Alvarez
CLEANSE Start with clean, dry hair. For natural girls, use the Motions Natural Textures Moisturizing Cleanser
CONDITION Use Motions Nourish Leave-In Conditioner followed by Motions Straight Finish Sealer to detangle and add moisture to the hair in preparation to blow dry straight
TREAT Apply a small amount of Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade to smooth the edges and really define the look
FINISH Part the hair into 3 horizontal sections from the crown to the nape of the neck. Starting at the top, gather the first section back into a ponytail and secure using a snag-less hair tie. Then, make a hole right above the hair tie and loop the ponytail down through, pulling tight to secure. Continue this inverted ponytail at each section, pulling hair from the previous pony into the new one. Set with Motions Light Hold Working Spritz and wrap hair to keep it smooth
STYLE Using the blow dryer, set the hair into place. Once set, remove the wrap and finish with the Motions Oil Sheen & Conditioning Spray. TIP: add some glitzy hair pins at the base of each ponytail for an Award-worthy look!
Motions Straight Finish Cleanser, Leave-In Conditioner and Sealer ($6.99 each), Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade, Motions Light Hold Working Spritz and Motions Oil Sheen & Conditioning Spray ($3.99 each)
1. The Best & Worst Gowns Seen At The Emmy Awards
Your favorite small screen starlets hit the red carpet for the 2014 Emmy Awards. And the lineup of pure amazingness was matched with a healthy amount of "what is she wearing?" See what everyone wore tonight and who maybe should find a new stylist!

WORST! I think the bedazzle action is ruining this Prada moment for me.

BEST! One word...breathtaking!

9. Alicia Quarles in Dany Atrache Couture
BEST! Between the deep plunging neckline, the lace and embroidery--this dress needs a take two on another red carpet.
