Candidates for Best Younger Actress in a Drama Series present a variety of hairstyles…curly, wavy, straight, ombre color, golden blond and a girl-to-woman makeover!
The nominees are Shelley Hennig (ex-Stephanie, Days of Our Lives), Molly Burnett (Melanie, Days), Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, The Bold and The Beautiful) and Christel Khalil (Lily of The Young and The Restless).
Shelley is well known for her daytime role, but she has carried her popularity into nighttime’s The Secret Circle. For the soaps (below), she looked younger in ringlets that seemed perfectly natural and low maintenance. For nighttime intrigue (above) the brunette takes on a more sophisticated, more stylized waves and curls.
As Melanie on Days, Molly Burnett (below left) changes her hair often. She wore ombre haircolor when it was hot (esp. because of Drew Barrymore). Miss Melanie also used to wear her hair in over-the-top, high-society dos that were too old for her. Lately she seems right at home in girlish looks like this long golden blond mane curled around the face.
If your hair is straight or smoothed out with blow-dry styling, just use a curling iron vertically to get the flattering ringlets.
Speaking of ombre color, Steffy is still wearing it. Jacqueline (right) keeps it fresh by volumizing hair on top and blending it to lower volume, but loose curls through the length. Light layers starting at the chin give the mane that extra boost.
At The Young and the Restless, Emmy nominee Christel Khalil has always brought an exotic flair to her Lily. Most recently we haven’t seen Christel much on screen and wish that she would have a bigger story. Back in the day, Lily was on the front burner playing a rising model being thwarted by Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson, Emmy nominee for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series). From the start we noticed Christel’s luscious ringlets that seem more natural. If your hair is like hers, just brush out the crown and scrunch dry the rest.
The Daytime Emmy Awards will be presented June 23 in Los Angeles. A complete list of nominees can be found at EmmyOnline.TV.
