When it comes to award shows, celebrities take center stage—they are being analysed from head to toe, after all, with the smallest mishap being noted by all of us watching from the comfort of our couches. But we know at this point that the glam squad is just as important to said celebrities’ successful red carpet debut as the celebrity herself—they’re the ones making up her face, blotting away shine, adding dewiness when necessary, and coiffing her hair so not a strand is out of place (unless, of course, it’s meant to look that way).
Thus, we’re always excited with a member of the celebrity glam team gives us a peek into pre-Emmys prep. Enter Ashley Streicher, one third of Hollywood’s favourite beautifying sister trio, the Streicher sisters, and Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka’s hair guru for her Emmys debut. Streicher gave us a peek into how she spends her Emmys day—from early morning hikes (with requisite playlist blaring) to doughnuts and Davines hair products.

I like to start my days with a brisk walk through the canyon listening to my most inspirational jams. Tip: The best way to combat bed head is to hike it out without hair ties! My Emmys day “Canyon Jamz” playlist is…
• U.S. Girls, “Damn That Valley”
• Kurt Vile, “Pretty Pimpin”
• Unknown Mortal Orchestra, “Can‘t Keep Checking My Phone”
• Sleater-Kinney, “Bury Our Friends”
Next comes coffee at home. Check out that foam! #professional
Last-minute stop by The Hair Shop to make sure I’m sufficiently prepped.
This is how we do it in L.A.: power lunch on the run from my favorite juice spot, Kreation… with juices in tow for Kiernan.
When you show up with juice and your client sweetly tries to ruin you with doughnuts. I'm a sucker for doughnuts, especially these from Fonuts.

Last-minute moments. I work best barefoot.
