"Nina Dobrev's Emmy Look: All the Details!"

Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev looked like an awards show veteran, despite having only stepped out at a handful of high-profile events in her career.

Making sure not to hide any detail of her gorgeous getup, the star sported side-parted, over-the-shoulder waves. Her hair pro, Riawna Capri tells US, "The dress was so beautifully powerful that we wanted a hairstyle that was not too 'done' — loose, soft and romantic."

"First I blew out her hair with Oribe Rock Hard Gel to give it lots of body and lift and set the hair in velcro rollers. Then using a 1 1/4 curling iron, I curled and pinned her hair in all horizontal sections," says Capri. "After her makeup was done, we dropped the pins, and brushed her hair off to one side. I lifted her bang area with a rattail comb and sprayed it with a strong holding spray. Then I finished with a mist spray to giver her hair a radiant glow on the red carpet."
