The 2011 Emmys brought with them not only great talent, but also great curly hair styles. For us curlies, the red carpet was glowing with our fellow curl sisters. Who are these women who dare to bare the curl, and how can we get the same look?
Gina Torres, Laurence Fishbourne’s wife and actress, looked spectacular by keeping it natural on the red carpet and showing off her great 3C spirals. Keeping the curls hydrated so they are shinny and frizz free is key to the overall look.
Julianna Margulies, who won Lead Actress in a Drama Series for "The Good Wife," kept every bit of her 3B hair in place with her 40’s style set. By blowing out the hair, recurling with a large barrel curling iron, pinning the front in place, and then lightly brushing out the curls, this set with stay all night.
Andy Samburg, of Saturday Night Live, kept his funny guy 2C hair short, sweet and tousled with a great defining paste.
Cat Deeley, of "So You Think You Can Dance," had her 2B waves styled with a curling rod and texture spray to create a beach wave pattern and subtle texture.
Christina Hendricks, of "Mad Men," and her fiery red hair sizzled on the red carpet with her 2B curls accentuated with a 2-inch curling iron and teased to create lots of volume, fullness and lift.
Padma Lakshmi, "Top Chef," had her slightly wavy 2A curls up in a sensual updo, which can be achieved by twisting fine hair into a knot or small French twist in the back and leaving a small amount of curls out to accentuate and frame the face.
Darren Criss, Glee, kept his cropped 3B hair cute and curly with a curl defining gel.
Margo Martindale, who won Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for "Justified," styled her 3B curls back to show off her gorgeous earrings. By scrunching the curls with a hard hold to create volume, and pinning the curls away from the face to create lift, you can achieve the same look.
Jane Krakowski, nominated for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for "30 Rock," donned a modern Farrah Fawcett-esque wave with her platinum blonde 3B locks. The uber blonde highlights add to the style and give it brightness and definition.
Melissa McCarthy, who won Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for "Mike & Molly," looked fabulous with her loose 2A curls, and her crown showed off the curls beautifully. Her loose waves were curled with a 1-inch iron and brushed out to create a more subtle curl.
Annie Ilonzeh, of the new "Charlie’s Angels," had her sexy 4A corkscrews piled on top of her head in a loose updo, simply pinned up without disturbing the curl pattern, and then added a headband to accessorize.
Peter Dinklage, who won Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for "Game of Thrones," kept his hair simple with his 2C curls and pieced them out a little bit with a texture paste.
