Get Uzo Aduba’s Emmys ‘Do In 5 Simple Steps

I may be one of the few people who hasn’t seen Netflix’s hit comedy series “Orange is the New Black,” but it was hard not to notice how stunning its breakout star Uzo Aduba looked at last night’s Emmy’s.

The actress, 33, who took home the Emmy for ‘Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series’ for her role as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren last week (during the Creative Arts ceremony), turned heads on the red carpet in a scarlet Christian Siriano gown and chic updo that complemented her natural tresses.

Celebrity hairstylist Jamika Wilson created the eye-catching ‘do with the help of Motions Salon Hair Care products. “Our look tonight was ‘classic beauty!’ A soft, simple pulled-back bun with a little volume, to keep it soft at the crown. Very glamorous and chic!” describes Wilson.

I’m loving this style and will try to recreate the look thanks to these simple steps provided by Wilson below:

How To:
CLEANSE Start with clean, dry hair – try the Motions Lavish Conditioning Shampoo
