Alexis Bledel made a rare appearance at the 2018 Emmys alongside husband Vincent Kartheiser. Nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Alexis won an Emmy last year with her work on Handmaids Tale and was there supporting her cast this year. Wearing a pale pink and lemon yellow gown, this whimsical Delpozo piece was a beautiful juxtaposition to her signature brunette locks. Due to the fact that her bright colored gown made such a strong statement, Bledel’s hair stylist, Craig Gangi for Matrix, decided to keep her hair “polished and sleek, yet modern.” Keep scrolling to see just how Gangi got the look!

Step 1: To create this look I started by applying Matrix StyleLink Smooth Setter Cream to her damp hair.

Step 2:  I then used a medium round brush to blow dry hair smooth, while I pulled roots of hair in opposite direction to create slight lift on top of the head.

Step 3: I wanted the sides to lie flat, so I pulled hair downwards after it was blow-dried. Once hair was dry, I used a flat iron to straighten and sprayed each section with Matrix StyleLink Heat Buffer Spray which created that smooth shiny finish and also protects the hair from heat.

Step 4: After the hair was ironed, I created a deep side part and flattened behind ears. To complete this look I sprayed Matrix StyleLink Volume Fixer on the hairstyle, which will hold the hair in place all night yet still allow for some natural movement.”
