The Big Little Lies actress teamed with her new go-to hairstylist Nikki Nelms to create the new look for 2017 Primetime Emmys. Nikki said her inspiration came from the feathered layers of her red carpet look.

“It’s all about the layers,” said Nikki who cut and colored Zoë’s hair the day before. “Her short pixie actually mirrors the soft, mini layered texture of her dress.”

She also shared how she created the daring new ‘do. “I started her Emmys hair routine by spraying Dove Refresh+Care Unscented Dry Shampoo ($4) to cleanse her hair and begin building volume for her layered pixie cut,” shared Nikki.

To create even more volume, she then used a mini flat iron to give the hair a slight bend in various places. Instead of spraying the hair with hairspray, she sprayed her finger tips and finger combed the tresses to give it a more layered and feathered look. To finish, she used a defining mousse ($4) to perfect the wispiness around Zoë’s hairline.
