Claire Danes 2012 Emmy Hair

The stunning star wore her hair down in soft touchable waves that had so much body! We got the lowdown on how to recreate the look straight from her stylist!

Celebrity hairstylist artist Peter Butler created Claire Danes’ elegant yet natural waves that were inspired by Veronica Lake and her ‘magical marigold strapless Lavin dress.’

Achieving Old Hollywood hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways and frizz. Start by evenly applying 10 drops of Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control from the roots to the ends on damp hair. Next apply a handful of Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse and comb through hair to uniformly distribute.

“Veronica Lake always had a strong side part, which is what made her look so sexy,” says Peter. Create a deep side part a. Use a 1-inch barrel curling iron, and in small sections, wrap hair forward around the barrel towards your face. Continue one curl after the other in the exact same pattern until the whole head is complete. After everything cools, take the fine side of your comb and start combing through the curls. As you comb around the entire head, the curl pattern will start to join together. Break up the pattern with your fingers to create natural flowing waves.

To finish, mist a thin coat of Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray in an even, all-around motion, to set the look.
