I’m sorry to inform you that Mandy Moore will once again make you consider getting bangs, as the This Is Us actress brought a new set of full, soft, textured bangs to the Emmy Awards in 2021. It was her first red carpet appearance since the outbreak began.
Ashley Streicher, the star’s hairstylist, tells exclusively, “Our inspiration was this beautiful Carolina Herrera red dress that was fresh off the runway.” “To keep it young and modern, we decided to go Audrey Hepburn with it.”
A compelling clip-in set of bangs (yes, it’s hard to believe they’re not real) and a high tousled ponytail add a young and modern twist. Mandy Moore ‘s hair was washed the night before with Garnier Pure Clean Shampoo & Conditioner for a fresh base. Streicher prepped her hair with Garnier Fructis Style Mega Thickening Lotion and Fructis Flat Iron Perfector for heat protection before their Emmys glam session.
Moore’s ponytail was created with T3 styling tools, which gave it a tousled, lived-in texture. The stylist added a natural-looking bend to the star’s ponytail and face-framing tendrils with the new AireBrush Duo and finished the look with the Single Pass Curl 1 1/4 inch curling iron.
“Grabbing random pieces of hair and bending it with the barrel to keep the wave and texture effortless-looking is my favourite way to keep the hair looking lived in,” she says.
Streicher used Fructis Texture Tease Dry Touch Finishing Spray, Fructis Style Pure Clean Finishing Paste, and Fructis Style Flexible Control Spray to ensure the look held up while being photographed from all angles on the red carpet.
Moore’s makeup artist Kindra Mann leaned into the Audrey Hepburn inspiration and red theme by giving her a bold cherry red lip that perfectly matches her grown, as well as soft, smudged eyeliner and fluffy lashes.
And if seeing these photos of Moore’s bangs hasn’t persuaded you to get a haircut, you can always take a cue from the actress and try out the look with clip-ins.
