Best Tressed Emmy Looks: Hair Trends Inspired by Old Hollywood

Blonde, ginger and brunette bombshells: Claire Danes, Christina Hendricks and Sofia Vergara.

TV's biggest award ceremony brought out the ghost of old Hollywood past, but not in a fright-night way. To-die-for looks from last Sunday's Emmys channeled scary good glamour reminiscent of the '40s and '50s. 

Sweetheart necklines, curve hugging gowns and mermaid silhouettes ruled the red carpet. Even better, hair trends took iconic inspiration from screen sirens such as Veronica Lake, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe. Soft waves topped the crowns of Claire Danes, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Christina Hendricks.

We've also compiled several hairsprays, shampoos, conditioners, and styling tools and products to achieve your own show-stopping styles.
