This Is Us is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the 2021 Emmy Awards, and star Mandy Moore is bringing the drama with brand new bangs and a voluminous high ponytail on the red carpet. As her stylist Ashley Streicher shared in a press release, “we decided to go a little Audrey Hepburn with it.”
The full bangs, expertly tousled, pair well with a few face-framing waves and classic red lipstick — all of which were designed to complement her classic Hollywood red Carolina Herrera gown. Streicher took her Instagram followers through part of her prep process, which started by setting up a work station made up of Garnier products and T3 tools. She had Moore wash the night before with Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo, then prepped and styled with Garnier's Texture Tease Dry Touch Finishing Spray and Flexible Control Hairspray. She used the T3 Lucea flat iron to smooth out and set the exciting new bangs.
In an appropriate theme for television's biggest night, Streicher revealed that Moore's brand new bangs are a bit of Hollywood magic. The bangs aren't a fresh cut, but a faux piece that Streicher created for the evening. “I made sure to have some of her natural hairline in there to keep them looking as real as possible,” she said.
Even with all the glam around her, Moore, who has an eight-month old son at home, is keeping the night in perspective. She's only posted one Instagram Story about the Emmys so far, and it's a photo of her breast pump — captioned “tonight's MVP accessory."
