Emmys 2013: Connie Britton

The redheads were in full force last night, and the fabulous Connie Britton led with a very ornate look from head to toe:

The Hair: Disheveled Elegance

Celebrity hairstylist Creighton Bowman created this look using Leonor Greyl.

“Connie is wearing this gorgeous blue/green velvet gown by Naeem Khan that has gold and bronze embellishments on it. So we went with a very editorial Veronica Lake look, we wanted the Hollywood waves but with a little “disheveled elegance”.

  • I started by shampooing her hair with Leonor Greyl Shampooing Reviviscence but decided to leave out conditioner because of the longevity of the hairstyle for the night.
  • Then, I prepped her wet hair with Leonor Greyl Lait Luminescence and towel-dried her hair after. To start to create the volume we wanted for her waves, I lightly applied Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice all over her hair from root to tip. Then I blew it out with a paddle brush for a lot of volume and used Serum de Soie to give her hair a bit of shine. Wanting more control in the front of the hair, I applied the Gel a l’Hibiscus along her hairline.
  • Then we got started on the waves. I began by spraying Leonor Greyl Condition Naturelle on each section of her hair, then curling each section with a half-inch curling iron and set everything with pin curls. Afterwards, I went through and took out the pin curls and created a deep side part. To give her hair more texture before moving on, I misted Voluforme all over.
  • Next, I brushed out her curls with a large paddle brush and then backcombed parts of her hair with a really wide toothed comb. This gave it the “disheveled elegance” aspect that we were going for.
  •  Lastly, I used Spray Structure Naturelle which is an amazing styling spray that gives strong hold to have her hairstyle last all night!”


The Nails: Glitter Fade

Celebrity Manicurist Beth Fricke created a gold fade over blue using essie’s “Go Overboard” with “Gold as it gets” on the tips.

Last but  not least: Cathy Waterman jewelry, Stuart Weisman clutch, Jimmy Choo shoes

If you want to try glamming up glitter tips, here are some tips in a video I made for Nails Magazine on the glitter fade using soak off gel:
