Emmy Style Ponies

We all look forward to the Emmy Awards each year to star watch the red carpet and catch a glimpse of the amazing looks throughout the night and well into the after parties.

Two editorial hair artists share a couple of the looks that they created on young starlets for the Hollywood gala. The first is a high, sleek ponytail on actress Sofia Bush who attended the FOX Broadcasting Company, FX, National Geographic and Twentieth Century Television’s Primetime Emmy Awards After Party. Her stunning style was created by Oribe Editorial Stylist Chad Wood who used the perfect high pony to complement Sofia’s sequin gown and accentuate her smokey eyes.

Best Styling Powders

Take a Powder

Haircolor Forecast

Haircolor Forecast

As seasons change, so too do the trends for haircolor. Traditionally a lightening effect takes place in the spring through the summer and then hues darken up, even cool down in the fall and hit their depths in the winter. These days the reality with haircolor is that pretty much anything goes. Hair, specifically color for hair, has become a canvas for expressing one's individuality and personal sense of style. Yet, still we look to the horizon to forecast what's coming. To stay a step ahead of what will be new and exciting in the world of hair and how it will evolve to accessorize our ultimate fashion statement.

Beauty at the Emmys

Beauty at the Emmys

TV’s biggest stars glowed on the red carpet last night at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards. Beauty trends including bold red lips, fresh faces and slicked back hair took the award as our favorites! Get the look of these carpet looks at home with products from Palladio Beauty and Keratin Complex at a fraction of the price. 

Bold Red Lips

Big Little Lies Stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon did not disappoint with their bold red lips, matching perfectly with their red carpet ensemble, while The Crown’s Claire Foy chose the same hue, which was perfectly fit for Queen! Try Palladio’s Dreamy Matte Lip Color ($7.50) in Red Carpet for those luscious ruby lips, then pair with the Twisted in Love Mascara ($10), for a subtle, yet sultry eye.

Glowing Skin and Subtle Lips

Shailene Woodley, Anna Chlumsky, and Julianne Hough all went nude… on the lip that is, while amping up their eyes with black eyeliner. Start with Palladio’s I’m Glowing Illuminating Primer ($12), for a subtle sheen to give skin a silky finish and a touch of luminosity and boost of radiance to the foundation. Use the Ultra Fine Eyeliner Pen ($7.50) to create thin, precise lines with just one stroke, and the Velvet Matte Lip Color ($7) in Sateen for a barely-there lip.

Sleek and Wet Hair

Tessa Thompson, Yara Shahidi, and Lea Michele all stepped onto the red carpet sporting sleek and slicked back hair. To replicate this easy-to-create look, start with Iconic Polish High Shine Pomade ($23) to slick back top and sides of hair and give locks a high shine, then work the pomade through by brushing back the sides and top of hair with the Ceramic Icon + Vent Brush ($29). Finish with the Flex Flow Flexible Shaping Hairspray ($25) to tame any flyaways and for a light hold to last all day.
