Ahead of her in memoriam performance at the Emmys 2020, singer H.E.R. shared a picture of her look on Instagram in lieu of walking the red carpet. As if her gorgeously colorful Vera Wang dress wasn’t enough, H.E.R. bedazzled her hair.
Hairstylist Nina Monique pulled back the singer’s hair into a sleek ponytail and braided it. Then, she stuck twinkling silver gems all around H.E.R.’s head. If you’re thinking of recreating the look at home, Allure‘s Gabi Throne likes to lock her hair jewels in place with hair gel, like Got2b’s Ultra Glued Invincible Styling Gel.
And that’s not all: Nina Monique also laid H.E.R.’s edges in stunning swirls along her hairline. For those who want to try something similar, hairstylist Kahh Spence recommends creating the wavy design with a disposable spooley brush. “It’s easier to comb through the hair [with a spooley] because it’s so small and used to define lashes, so why not use it on our baby hairs?” Spence explained in a past tutorial.
Makeup artist Marissa Vossen complemented H.E.R.’s fanciful hair and gown with lush falsies, mauve lips, and sunset-like eye shadow. She blended together purple and corals shadows for a dreamy wash of color on the singer’s lids. Don’t know about you, but this whole look officially has us inspired to get dressed up next weekend — even if we don’t leave our couch.
