Pre-Emmy Hairstyling Tips from Sarah Potempa


The stars may spend hours in hair and makeup to get picture-perfect ready for the red carpet, but with these simple tips from Aussie celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa, you can achieve the flawless hairstyles of your favorite Emmy nominated actresses instantly! You may remember that Sarah provided A Girl’s Gotta Spa! readers last year some hair styling tips for New Year’s Eve Looks.

There is no messing around with this simple, yet sleek look that can be worn day or night.  The key is to lock in moisture and keep the frizz out.

Holly Hunter, Nominee for Best Actress, Drama Saving Grace

*Spray Aussie’s Sydney Smooth Tip Protector + Leave-In Conditioner to damp hair and blow-dry with a round brush.
*Always hold the nozzle of the blow dryer parallel to the hair, not pointing directly at it, which can cause over-heating and damage.
*After styling with a flat iron, spritz 12hr Anti Humidity Hair Spray all over hair to prevent frizz and lock in your style for up to 12 hours!

The Look: Carefree CurlsJulia Louis Dreyfuss

Let loose and bring out your hair’s natural wave while keeping that touchable soft feel that you crave (natural styling differentiates this look from the sassy swirls.)

*Towel dry wet hair and spray Aussie’s Opposites Attract Spray Gel evenly throughout.  This gel is soft, flexible, and will not leave the hair crunchy.
*Scrunch hair with a towel and you will be amazed at how easy it is to get those perfect beachy waves
*If you wash your hair at night, wrap half dry hair into multiple buns to create this long-lasting look.

The Look: Sassy Swirls

This is an easy look that makes long lasting curls appear as feminine and flirty as these Emmy-nominated actresses.

*Make a definite clean side part with a tail comb.
*Apply Aussie’s Opposites Attract Styling Mousse through the sections with your fingers.
*Wrap small sections around a closed 1” curling iron, away from the face to create loose waves.
