For the 2009 Emmy Awards, celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora was inspired by the modernity and elegance of Blake Lively‘s red Versace gown. He created a goddess style, braided updo using products by Frederic Fekkai.
2009 Emmy Awards nominee Heidi Klum walked the red carpet in a Marchesa gown, Lorraine Schwartz jewels, hair styled by Michel Aleman for Frederic Fekkai and make-up designed by Linda Hay.
Michel created a 50s inspired updo with a modern interpretation – ultra feminine with a bit of volume. To get the look he crafted soft texture with slight waves pulled back to softly frame the face. A strong middle part was accented by a chignon positioned back of the head at ear level. Michel started off by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to create some texture and then blow-dried the hair. Once dry, he applied Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray to create the soft waves. He created a middle part and two pony tails in the back of the head at ear level, making sure the hair in front is smooth but pulled back softly. He teased each ponytail to create the volume and then brought together into one dramatic chignon. Michel finished off with the Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Sheer Shine Mist.
The simplicity of Heidi’s gown inspired Linda Hay to keep her makeup minimal and fresh. She used a palette of pale pinks and apricots for her eyes and cheeks. To begin Hay used Brightener around her eyes, nose, and the corners of the mouth, blending everywhere to even out Heidi’s complexion. She followed this with a very light touch of cream powder blush on the cheeks.
On the eyes Hay used a selection of pale pink and lavender shadow’s from Victoria’s Secret, applying the pale pink to the lid using a flat shadow brush, lavender in the crease using a pointed shadow brush and a silver to highlight just under the eyebrow. Under the eye Hay applied a touch of lavender using a small pointed shadow brush and then added a touch of silver to the inside corner of the eye to make it pop. Next she curled the lashes + applied 3 layers of Black Mascara to the top and bottom. Individual lashes were applied to the outside corners to make the eyes pop. The lips were lined with a nude lip liner then painted with a beige lipstick. She finished off Heidi’s look with Victoria’s Secret Body Perfecting Spray to make her skin glow.
Mark Townsend, Matrix’s celebrity stylist, helped Mad Men star January Jones get glam for the 2009 Emmy Awards. According to Townsend, “Working with January for any event is always going to be fun and inspiring.”
Mark was blown away with the detail and craftsmanship that went into making January’s stunning Versace gown. “While getting January ready, we had the dress hanging close by so I could see it while doing January’s hair, and that proved to be the inspiration for her overall look,” says Townsend, who loved all the lines and cut-outs of the dress, and wanted the hair to have the same feeling.
To get January’s hair from this glamorous event, Mark first sprayed Biolage Bodifying Spray Gel in her damp hair and blow dried it with a medium round brush. Then, he took sections of her hair pulled and pinned them back one at a time. January has shoulder length hair, so he needed to pull the hair back in sections because it is too short to pull it back all at the same time. Mark wanted the style to look like a textured chignon and by pinning sections at the back, he was able to achieve exactly that. He finished the chignon with Vavoom Shape Maker Hairspray to give the style some hold, and purposely let some hair fall loose around the front to catch the light and to give it more of a “fashion” look.
