Zendaya is known for consistently shutting down red carpets, but even she did outdid herself for her first Emmy’s appearance Sunday (Sept. 22) night.

The Euphoria actress brought the drama with a throwback to her stunning red tresses that gave us everything from MJ Hollywood glam to Poison Ivy euphoria mixed up with a bit of mermaid vibes for anyone who thought we couldn’t pull it off.

Simply stunning! We first saw her rock this comic-book red back in June while promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home, but this look was definitely all-glam.

“Tonight’s look was extra special because Zendaya went back to red hair,” celeb hairstylist Ursula Stephen told Hype Hair. “To complement the rich color, we decided to go for old Hollywood inspired soft waves, which went well with her jewel-toned green dress and diamonds, for the ultimate Hollywood starlet look.”

Her gorgeous custom emerald-green Vera Wang gown with a sheer corset and satin gown was styled up by Law Roach, of course — and nude beauty beat.

Ursula, who is also a Unilever expert, shared how to recreate the look at home using drugstore products that we can all afford. She used Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo ($3.74) Conditioner ($3.44) to wash and condition her hair. Before blow-drying her hair, she mixed up one of her signature cocktails using Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Multi-Benefit Hair Milk ($6.99) and Suave Professionals for Natural Hair Curl Defining Cream  ($4.99) to moisturize her curls.

She then curled medium sections of Zendaya’s hair into tight ringlets and let set. To achieve those soft glam waves, Ursula brushed out and blended all the curls into a wave formation. She then pinned and misted hair with Suave Professionals Firm Control Finishing Hairspray ($2.94) and let set before shaping the waves around her face.
