If you regularly read Beauty Police, you know we're usually not fans of the slicked-back hair trend (with the most recent offender being Amy Adams, who looked like she was wearing a bullet-proof hair helmet). But leave it to Emma Watson to make us reconsider our position. The difference? Actually two differences: Emma used minimal hair product (a Hollywood first) and she added tremendous volume at the crown.

And how about that four-alarm red lipstick? Um, ladies…that's how you rock a statement lip! With just a tiny bit of eyeliner and bold brows, nothing could take our eyes away from that gorgeous red lip. Perfection.

Get the Look: To get Emma's sleek chic hair, start by spraying your damp roots with a volume-building mist like Oribe Volumista Mist for Volume, which has polymers that swell the hair shaft to plump the hair.

Start by blowing out the crown of your head section-by-section, wrapping hair around a large barrel brush and blasting with heat. Then give the rest of your hair a sleek blowout.

To add extra volume at the crown, tease (backcomb) hair at the roots towards the back of your head and spritz with a light hairspray. Then, comb hair from the front over the teased hair and smooth. Finish by spraying entire head with a flexible-hold hairspray.

You're going to want to copy the Noah star's bold brows. Use an angled eyebrow brush to apply a long-lasting eyebrow gel like MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow in small, hair-size brushstrokes in the same direction that your eyebrow hair grows. Once gel has set, use a disposable mascara wand to brush brows upwards and blend.

To copy Emma's statement lip, start by exfoliating lips with a hydrating lip scrub like Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub. Then, line lips with a lip pencil that either matches your lipstick or is a nude color. Make sure you fill in your entire lips to ensure your lipstick lasts longer and that you're not left with the dreaded lip liner-only look.

Then, apply a creamy, hydrating, bright red lipstick like MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Everyday Diva. Blot with a tissue and then apply a second coat.

 As eager as we are to see Noah, we're more excited to see all of Emma's red carpet appearances. Something tells us she's going to throw in a few daring surprises…

We're not expecting a shaved head or anything, but Ms. Watson always knows how to bring the drama while showing proper restraint. Case in point: she held back from using the entire tube of hair gel on her voluminous slicked hair. Thank goodness, since judging by the amount of slicked-back looks we've seen over the past couple months, we're pretty sure LA is going to experience a gel shortage.
