The hair transformations were out in full force at Sunday night's Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

First there was Mandy Moore - who we almost didn't recognise - with her full fringe makeover that will finally seal the deal on your long-debated bangs decision.

Then there was Kaley Cuoco and her messy ponytail aka the look we have tried to master for years and always failed.

Never one to be outdone, Mindy Kaling jumped on the current retro hair trend and smashed it with some seriously glamorous waves.

The S Wave, the old Hollywood wave, retro waves, the Rita Hayworth, call them what you will, but it's fair to say they are officially back.

We first spotted them on the Met Ball red carpet sported by Megan Thee Stallion and Kaia Gerber, but Mindy's version might just have trumped them all.

Wearing a black strapless Carolina Herrera gown, complete with oversized bow, Mindy's hairstylist Marc Mena added the glamour with her seriously glossy waves.

The deep side part, the over the shoulder moment, this is the definition of expensive looking hair.

Just like her waves, Mindy's makeup artist Cindy Williams, kept her makeup soft, with a subtle brown smokey eye and pink diffused blusher.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to find a pair of tongs and a Mason & Pearson brush asap.

Or, I might just hop on a plane and hunt Marc down, because let's face it, these waves are going to be impossible to recreate ourselves.
