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

How To:

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

Products Used:

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

How To:

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!

Products Used:

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)
