Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for The Americans, Keri Russell graced the 2017 Emmy’s Red Carpet last night wearing a J. Mendel gown complimented with effortless tousled waves styled by Brian Magallones using Nexxus product.

“In order to contrast with her beautiful couture dress, I decided to keep her hair down for a modern, youthful look.”

Brian started with towel dried hair and smoothed Keri’s strands with Nexxus Humectress Encapsulate Serum to help keep it looking hydrated through the evening.


Next, he applied a golf ball size amount of Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam. “I then blow dried her curly hair straight to get rid of any frizz, yet leaving it with tons of volume.”

Brian then added a natural wave to Keri’s hair using a 1 ½ inch barrel curling iron. “I started by taking large 2 inch sections of hair and misted them with Nexxus Promend Heat Protecting Mist. Wrapping each section around the large barrel curling iron, I made sure to leave the ends straight to give it a more natural look.”

While curling Keri’s hair, Brian misted it periodically with Nexxus Frizz Defy Finishing Mist in order to give the waves hold and keep it looking smooth on the red carpet.  To give Keri’s look a bit of added edge, Brian touched the bottom half inch with a flat iron.

“Once all the hair was curled, I brushed it thoroughly with a paddle brush to relax the wave.  I then smoothed one pump of Nexxus Oil Infinite Hair Oil through her finished hair to help reduce frizz and keep it smooth and shiny.”

To hold everything in place, Brian finished with an additional mist of hair spray to give her style hold while retaining softness and flexibility for beautiful movement all night long.
