An Emmy How-To: Allison Williams

Allison Williams stunned in an emerald green Oscar De La Renta dress and Fred Leighton jewels and Ted Gibson styled her beautiful updo.

Following Ted shares how he got the look!

"I started off on dry hair by creating a roughed up texture. I rubbed Ted Gibson Hairsheet into her hair concentrating on the ends before blow-drying with a smaller round brush so that I can give the hair a slight bend to the hair. After the hair dried, I pinned everything with clips till it cooled. Next, I sprayed with Beautiful Hold Hairspray. Then, I back-combed the entire head from front hairline with a center part that’s ’60s inspired and deliberately tousled. I then created a high sexy French twist pinned with a mixture I secured with bobby and hair pins. Before she walked out the door I sprayed more Beautiful Hold Hairspray to give that extra hold.  Red carpet ready!”
