The celebrity hairstyle trends from the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles saw classic updos with modern twists of buns, braids and textured waves as seen on fan favorites January Jones, Katherine Heigl, Sarah Hyland, Taylor Schilling, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Julia Roberts. Three of the hottest looks, seen on Taylor Schilling, Kate Mara and Michelle Dockery, are detailed below, and the hair care products used to fashion the red carpet hairstyles are all available from L'Oreal Paris.

Celebrity hairstylist Richard Marin for L’Oréal Paris designed Taylor Schilling's 2014 Emmys hair. According to Marin, the “Orange is the New Black” actress’ “look for the Emmys was a 60’s inspired updo.”

To achieve the 30-year-old Emmy nominee’s celebrity hairstyle Richard prepped Schilling’s hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse, and blended it onto the roots of the hair for “optimal volume.” To “dramatically reduce frizz," Taylor’s stylist used the Remington T-Studio Silk Ceramic Dryer, and then sprayed her dry hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight HeatSpray. To keep the “hair together and locked in the set without becoming too wispy,” Taylor Schilling’s stylist used the Remington Frizz Therapy Flat Iron over the entire head. He then pulled the hair back into a low ponytail, preserving volume at the crown and secured it with a band. Her hair was twisted and pinned into a messy chignon and a few pieces of hair from around one side of the face was removed. Finish with a light mist of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray “to keep the look loose, while ensuring that it stays in place.”

Celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak for L’Oréal Paris had a busy 2014 Emmys’ night, completing Kate Mara’s and Michelle Dockery’s hair. Roszak took inspiration for Kate’s red carpet look from Mara’s “striking J Mendel dress, which had a whimsical feel and edgy detail, a perfect combination of rough and soft.” Roszak was also inspired by Michelle Dockery’s “one of a kind gown from a Brooklyn designer," and wanted to “highlight the classic ease of the dress.”

The 31-year-old Kate Mara’s hair for the 2014 Emmys “was all about shape and texture,” said the “House of Cards” actress’ celebrity stylist, “I cut it shorter creating a choppy, slightly A-line look,” and then "used L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to create texture." Mara’s hair was “rough-dried for volume at the roots” and loose waves were created with a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron. L’Oréal Paris Elnett Extra Strong Hold Satin Hairspray was liberally sprayed and for added texture and separation, L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty on the fingertips was used to “piece out the ends.”

The 32-year-old “Downton Abbey” actress wore a “beautiful, effortless bun parted in the middle for a cool, modern feel” to complement her tri-colored Rosie Assoulin gown at the 2014 Emmys. Roszak applied L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray “all over the hair for soft volume, and with a boar bristle round brush blew-dried the hair." A center part was then created, and to “add hold and texture," L’Oréal Paris Elnett Strong Hold Satin Hairspray was used. To complete this look at home, “section the front of the hair, in front of the ear, forward, and off on both sides,” and then secure the back into a low pony. Direct one side at a time towards the back, and wrap the ends around the elastic. Then, softly tease the ponytail at the base, which is closest to the elastic and smooth over the top. Wrap into a bun at the nape of the neck, and crisscross the bobby pins to secure.

Celebrity hairstyle secret: “For added hold, spray hairspray directly onto the pins before placing them in the hair.” To finish Michelle Dockery’s Emmys 2014 look a few pieces were left loose, and L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray was applied for a “strong hold that lasts through the night."
