At any given award show, you're bound to see your fair share of blowouts, bouncy curls, and sky-high buns. But at the 2018 Emmy Awards, some of the strongest hair trends featured elements that we couldn't totally see: the hair accessories. And they were in abundance: Nestled in the natural texture worn by Yvonne Orji (who plays Molly on HBO's Insecure); in the sleek center-parted chignon on Sadie Sink (of Netflix's Stranger Things), or tucked into the curly pineapple worn by Atlanta's Zazie Beetz (who's nominated for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series). All of those glittering pins and clips added shine to the hairstyles — without taking the shine away from them.
This year's Emmy Awards, in its seventieth year, features the most diverse group of nominees in history: 36. That means that viewers and fans get to see a wider range of textures, lengths, and styles during the show. But one thing that all of the stars below have in common? Good taste, and the inherent knowledge that "less is more" never applies to good accessories. See how Orji, Beetz, Sink, and more stars styled theirs — and get insight on some of the hair products that they used, too.
