With the eyes of the world and a thousand cameras focusing in on every detail, it’s critical for celebs to have flawless haircolor on a big night like the Emmys. But Joico Celebrity Colorist, Denis de Souza, says that several stars got it right this year, with beautiful, dimensional color and on-trend color deigns that are rich and lush, with lighter, brighter ends. Here’s are Denis’s top picks for the best red-carpet hues, along with his Joico recipes for recreating each look.

 

Michelle Dockery’s Rich Espresso

 

 

Why: Michelle’s cool chestnut shade is rich and shiny and offers a striking contrast to her porcelain complexion.

 

Color Formulas

volume Vero K-PAK Color Veroxide. Process 35 minutes.
Formula B (gloss): Joico Vero K-PAK Chrome ½ A5/Medium Ash Brown + ½ A7/Dark Ash Blonde + Vero K-PAK Chrome Activator Crème Developer.

 

Apply Formula A to all strands. Then apply Formula B to midlengths and ends during the last 10 minutes of the base color processing time. * Base color processing time will vary depending on the client.

 

Gwen Stefani’s Autumn Platinum

 

 

Why: “Gwen always sports her signature platinum blonde,” observes Denis, “but in the summer, it’s cooler and in the fall, she takes it a little warmer. Right now she’s wearing her fall blonde shade.”
