Okay, we’ll admit it – we love a good televised award show! And we’re dying to see TV’s biggest stars turn it out at the Emmy Awards this weekend. From fabulous dresses to sparkly jewels, it’s always exciting to see who will land on the best dressed list… and who will be roasted by Joan.
One thing is for certain: No celeb would be able to nail a red carpet ensemble without a little (er, a lot) of preparation. And we’re not just talking about endless hours at the gym.
Hollywood’s elite have access to the priciest primping treatments, and they’re indulging from head to toe before every event — trust us. After all, HD cameras are not forgiving. Here are a few Hollywood staple beauty treatments that you can get during Spa Week for a LOT cheaper:
Hollywood Hair Splurge: Kerastase Treatments, Blowouts
Newly engaged Jennifer Aniston has a lot to celebrate this year, and we hope to finally get a glimpse of her and fiancé Justin Theroux on the red carpet together. At least we know for sure that her gorgeous hair will be in attendance! To mimic the look try a blowout and Kerastase treatment, which will leave your strands silky smooth and full of shine.
