How-Tos For Her Emmy Awards Hair! 

At last night’s Emmy Awards, actress Taraji P. Henson dazzled on the red carpet and on stage (as an award presenter) in an exquisite floral gown and a face-framing, softly tousled braided style. “My inspiration was a whimsical fairytale which had a lot to do with the dress,” shares celebrity hairstylist Tym Wallace who crafted the star’s dazzling coif. “The dress is very detailed with flowers. So, so beautiful!”

To create Taraji’s look, Wallace relied on a key hair tools and the following mane moves. Here he shares the details…

Step 1: “I prepped her hair with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, then added mousse before using the FHI Heat Platform Nano Salon Pro 2000 hair dryer to diffuse and set the curl.”

Step 2: “I took random sections and wrapped the hair around an FHI Heat Platform 3/4 inch curling iron to define the curl pattern.”

Step 3: ‘I finished the look by creating a low messy braid, making it really textured with some face framing tendrils.”

CURL, GIRL…Celebrity hair pro Tym Wallace gets Taraji’s mane red-carpet ready with the help of the FHI Heat Platform 3/4 inch curling iron.
