We got all the details for the look from Dove hairstylist Cynthia Alavarez who styled Anika’s red carpet ‘do. “For Anika’s Emmys hair, she wanted to sport her beautiful natural hair and her edgy cut, which perfectly complemented her gown,” said Cynthia.

She also shared how to get the look at home. Starting on fresh, clean hair, Cynthia prepped Anika’s hair for twsiting by first working Dove Absolute Curls Supreme Crème Serum ($6) onto her damp hair and then a golf ball-sized amount of defining mousse ($4) to further define her natural texture.

She then parted Anika’s hair in horizontal sections and double strand-twisted hair and then blew it dry. Once completely dry, she coated her fingers n the serum to prevent frizz and then unraveled the twists, separating the ends. To finish off the look, she used a hard hold gel, shaping Anika’s front baby hairs into a series of swirls.
