Following last night's 25th annual SAG Awards, Emily Blunt is a hot topic of conversation. Not only did the actress bring home an award for best supporting actress for her role in A Quiet Place, she also stunned on the red carpet in a bright pink Michael Kors gown alongside hubby John Krasinski.

Inspired by Blunt's dress, celebrity hairstylist Laini Reeves opted for an elegant style that was both sleek and healthy. Here, a breakdown of how she achieved the look.

Step 1: Treat the hair to make strands strong and shiny with K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock Instant Shine & Repair Treatment for 5 minutes.

Step 2: Blow-dry the hair using the Dyson Supersonic Professional edition with the large nozzle attachment and a soft brush to get the hair as straight and shiny as possible.

Step 3: Add a center part and pull hair into a slick pony as low to the nape as you can get it. Secure with a hair tie. 

Step 4: Spray the pony with Joico Beach Shake Texturizing Finisher to add some waves.

Step 5: Roll pony into the nape and secure with a barrette.

Step 6: Set with Joico Beach Shake Texturizing Finisher for a high-gloss finish.
