How to Create Aubrey Plaza's Emmys Hair

Get Aubrey Plaza's Old-Hollywood Emmys Hair


At the Emmys, actress Aubrey Plaza looked more like Ava Gardner than April, her slacker character on Parks & Recreation. Stylist David Gardner of SoloArtists gave her these vintage-looking waves, and we've got the scoop on you can get them, too. To see Gardner's directions for re-creating the look, just keep reading.


What you'll need:

  • Styling mousse
  • Hair dryer
  • Hair spray
  • One-inch barrel curling iron

Step 1: Mousse and dry

While your hair is still damp, apply styling mousse all over. Then, blow-dry your hair loosely with your fingers; blow out the top and front with a large round brush.

Step 2: Curl

Starting at the nape of your neck, curl your hair tightly using a one-inch iron. But rather than rolling it under, curl in a corkscrew fashion. Be sure to leave the very ends out and straight.

Step 3: Finishing touches

Once your hair is curled and cooled, run your fingers through and break it up.Then style the front over one eye and give it a good shot of shine-supplying hair spray. (Gardner used L'Oréal Elnett.)
