Allison Williams wore her gorgeous brown hair down in loose waves at the Emmy Awards on Sept. 22, a nice juxtaposition to her fancy red carpet gown. Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend created the look on the Girls actress — get the exact how-to steps below!
Allison Williams’ Emmys Hair — Gorgeous Loose Waves
Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend created the look on Allison. Here’s how to get it directly from Mark:
Working with Allison Williams for the Emmys was a dream come true! Once I saw her beautiful Ralph Lauren gown and talked with Allison, we decided to keep her hair down and go for a classic all-American beauty look.
I started by applying a large dollop of the Dove Whipped Cream Mousse to her damp hair and blow-dried with a medium round brush to get lots of volume and keep her hair smooth.
Next, I took 3 to 4 inch sections of hair and curled them with a 1 inch curling iron away from the face. To break up the curls, I scrunched the hair while spraying Oribe Après Beach spray all over.
For a little piecey-ness on the ends, I sprayed Sally Hershberger Glam Waves on my hands and then raked my fingers through the ends.
Just before Allison left for the red carpet, I sprayed Dove Extra Hold Hairspray all over to keep the hair full and shiny without looking stiff.
Allison’s Exact Makeup — Get The Look
Allison’s “all american” makeup look was crated by Julie Harris for CARGO Cosmetics.
Here’s the exact breakdown:
Step 1: Prep the skin with Simple Skincare Hydrating Light Moisturizer followed by CARGO_HD Picture Perfect Pore Refining Primer to keep the foundation lasting through the red carpet.
Step 2: Start with the eyes – dab CARGO_HD Picture Perfect Eye Shadow Primer then apply FLOWER Color Play Crème Eyeshadow in Orchid-Ing Around on the lids and under the lower lash line to achieve a soft Smokey eye then set it with Cargo Eye Shadow in Pasadena.
Step 3: Apply a light coat of Cargo OneBase in #02 to conceal dark areas to give the skin a subtle glow and warmth; conceal the under eyes with Cargo Jet Lag to brighten and open the eyes.
Step 4: Highlight the inner corners, brow bone and cheekbone with Cargo ColorStick in Champagne to give a dewy freshness to the skin.
Step 5: Apply a very thin black line of Cargo TexasLiner Liquid Eye Liner close to the lash line to make lashes pop, then apply two generous coats of Cargo TexasLash Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
Step 6: Apply CARGO_HD Picture Perfect CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 20 all over the face and set with CARGO _HD Picture Perfect Pressed Powder.
Step 7: With a small powder brush, lightly dust Cargo Bronzing Powder in Matte Medium to high points of the forehead, cheekbones and down the neck for a natural glow, then apply a hint of Cargo Blush in Catalina to the apples of the cheeks for a fresh and natural flush.
Step 8: Keep the lips looking soft and supple by blending Cargo Essential Lip Color in Dubai and Las Vegas and dabbing on the lips, then top with Cargo Lip Gloss in Las Vegas Strip.
