The 2010 Prime Time Emmy Awards Red Carpet Hair Review
Los Angeles, California, USA - The Emmy Awards is always a good gauge of the hair trends for the Fall season. The stars of television come out to show support for fellow actors and to be seen – and
hopefully recognized as looking good. And while most red carpet reviews will focus on who looked best and worst, we’re going to look at the overall styling trends present in the looks seen at the Prime
All in all, the looks for women were much simpler this season. The majority of the stars wore their hair loose and wavy, with low levels of volume and little in the way of fussy design elements and styling techniques.
Those up-styles seen were softly-swept and featured only localized detail designs (if any).
Among the stars that epitomized these elements were:
With her blonde hair parted off-center, Kate’s stylist used an over-swept top and fringe. The hair was drawn softly to the nape where it was then twisted into a knotted pattern and secured to serve as a design element.
The look was simple, and looked elegant, making added ornamentation unnecessary.
In the purest definition of “simple” Kyra Sedgewick is seen here with her hair flowing loose with large, rolling waves. The tresses are soft, casual, and plied lightly with product to create a touch of definition among
The softly-curled fringe introduces a look that includes loosely-gathered tresses. The hair, collected at the nape into a single, thick tail, is so simple it’s elegant. The style matches the rest of her Emmy esthetic:
start with clean simple lines and casual elegance ensues.
Most red carpet reviews overlook men’s looks entirely. But men’s styles change as often as women’s do, though perhaps to a lesser degree. The men’s hairstyles this red carpet season still followed the classic men’s perimeter
cutting lines, but the hair itself is longer. Aside from the cast of “Mad Men” (a show set in the 1950’s) most of the men present seemed to be sporting styles that looked like classic men’s cuts grown out an inch or so.
Styling these cuts tends toward the very casual and very loose. With emphasis on letting natural wave and curl shine through, the men’s looks appeared organic and somewhat bohemian. Among the styles commonly seen were:
the Fauxhawk; the variations of the Collegiate cut, and general choppy-layers styled for a bed-head look.

Andis launches the BGRV™ Variable Speed Clipper

maintenance free. The clipper is very versatile and offers five speeds and a 360 degree swivel cord that is tangle free. This increases mobility and reduces cord wear and hand strain. The clipper comes with the
