Get The Look: Cat Deeley at the 64th Annual Emmy Awards.

So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley wowed the crowd when she stepped onto the red carpet tonight at the 64th annual Emmy Awards. Makeup Artist Amy Strozzi was the visionary behind the nominated host’s stunning beauty look. Amy put the focus on Cat’s eyes, layering a wet coffee shadow over a blend of multiple mocha shades for a modern take on the classic smokey eye. Amy then upped the drama by smudging a dark brown liner on both top and bottom lashes and swiping black mascara on lashes for the finishing touch.

To offset the intensity of the eyes, Amy kept the rest of Cat’s face simple: she gave Cat her signature sunkissed glow using Glow Powder Bronzer and added a rosy flush of color on Cat’s cheekbones using True Color Blush. Amy finally opted to give Cat a nude lip, which she achieved by applying a neutral lip liner over the entire lip and then swiping a matching lipstick.

InStyle: How to create a Boho side braid.

The side-braid—as seen here on Zoe Saldana and Blake Lively—is one of the easiest hairstyle trends to ever hit the red carpet. But in spite of its simplicity (who doesn’t know how to braid?), we still get countless questions about how to get it right. That is, not too loose, skinny, or schoolgirl-ish. Click through our gallery to master the boho side-braid, once and for all.

The Basic Tips
• Start with dry hair that is completely knot-free.
• Create a deep side part with your fingers—not a comb. This is important to facilitate a more undone look and help you stay away from anything too severe.
• Pull all of your hair over one shoulder and braid to the side. If you can create a French braid, like Rachel McAdams, do! If not, no worries. A simple plait still works.
• Fasten with a clear elastic, and leave out wispy pieces to frame the face.

My braids fall out during the day.
Solution: Fact: Braids last longer in dirty hair. The natural oils give twists something to adhere to. If your hair gets too greasy, douse your roots with dry shampoo like Dove’s (available in March, $4; drugstores) and you’ll be good to go.

Get The Look: Zoe Saldana’s Undone Ponytail, The Words LA Premiere.

Celebrity hairstylist artist Mara Roszak created Zoe Saldana’s look for last night’s The Words premiere in Los Angeles. Taking inspiration from Zoe’s lace Ellie Saab dress, Roszak created an “undone and sexy, yet effortless low messy ponytail” for the red carpet.

Get Zoe’s look in three simple steps:

Step 1 – Prep and Texturize
Achieving the undone quality of Zoe’s hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways. Start by evenly applying John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99 at drugstores) through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.

Step 2 – Secure the Style
To create the perfect natural wavy texture, loosely braid hair and let it dry. Once hair is completely dry, take out the braid and break up the waves by running your fingers through your hair. Gently tease the crown for a bit of height. Next, pull hair from each side of the face to the back of the head, allowing one section of hair to overlap the other and pin in place with bobby pins. Continue this all the way down the back until all the hair is wrapped into a pony tail shape. Allow the pieces around the face to naturally fall out for a soft feminine look.

Step 3 – Polish and Perfect
To finish the look, mist a thin coat of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) in an even, all-around motion.
