The best hairstyles from ‘The Pandemmy’s 2020’
Although the 2020 Emmy Awards were virtual this year that didn’t stop the hairstyles being award-worthy. Sure a lot of the winners made their acceptance speeches from home, it didn’t mean the dress code was lounge pants and scrunchies.
From Yvonne Orji’s Black Lives Matter hair art to Reese Witherspoon’s chic waves here are a few of the industry’s favourite looks.
“Hair is the ultimate accessory and even in times when fashion is being simplified, hair takes centre stage. Red-carpet events have become more politicised over the past 12 months and no doubt will continue to do so, and by adding a motif in the hair makes a point, without being overtly in -your-face. Yvonne looks incredible with her short hair and one-shouldered dress, and by the time the next awards event comes around, her hair will have grown and she can opt for another hair tattoo!” Noel Halligan, NOCO Hair, Bristol
“The Normal People actor may not have scooped an award (he lost out to Mark Ruffalo) but he certainly looked the part of an award winner. His hair was smartly swept to the side and naturally styled by male grooming expert Joe Mills, certainly a more grown-up departure from Connell’s curly fringe.”

“I’m obsessed with the Marvellous Mrs Maisel actor and even more so now I’ve seen her glossy black waves. How healthy does her hair look? Methinks Rachel has had quite the lockdown glow up. She proves that simple is often (something I could learn from.”

“We are in love with Kerry Washington’s sassy bob! The heavy parting creates a polished classic finish and the short blunt baseline enhances the jaw line – this combination is the perfect way to create a striking, classic look – even when it is virtual. I think event hair will evolve with virtual events, we will need to adapt the looks to be even more noticeable so they are captured well on the small screen.” Dan Mewies, Mewies and Co.
“Yara’s braids are definitely one of the stand-out looks from the Pandemmy’s! They’re intricate, elegant and I love how they are almost an extension of her Prada gown.”
