The Golden Globes was back for 2023 – and after a few years off, we couldn’t wait to see some of the biggest stars in TV and film walk the red carpet.
As the first event of the Hollywood awards season, the Golden Globes doesn’t just hint at who will be taking home the trophies over the coming months, but it also sets the pace for those all-important red-carpet fashion and beauty moments. The home of some of the most iconic moments in fashion industry, it certainly did not disappoint. Striking the perfect balance of sophistication and dazzle, our favourite stars make us swoon with their fabulous looks.
We caught up with some of our hair industry favourites to get the lowdown on some of the star-studded guest list’s looks, plus top tips for replicating them in the salon.
Golden Globes red carpet reporter Amelia Dimoldenberg looked ultra-glam and blow-dry queen Lisa Carter says: “Amelia’s vintage waves give off a glamorous feel, yet feel slightly more effortless. The way they’ve been dressed out leaving a much softer finish reminds me of the iconic Rita Hayworth. Her hair colour is not only perfect for her skin tone but goes very well with her outfit and really helped to accentuate the look as a whole.”
Barb Mahoney, owner of Leicester’s Do My Hair says: “Amelia is oozing with style. Her sunset copper hair complements her fair complexion, and she sets the look off perfectly with her mermaid waves.”
Bridal specialist Sharon Roberts says ‘I love how Amelia’s colour palette works from top to toe. I feel like her colourist, hair stylist and fashion stylist must have collaborated to ensure a really cohesive look. The dress and hair are not competing for attention – it’s a winner for me and no doubt will be copied by a lot of brides this year.”
Best Musical/Comedy Television Actor winner, Jeremy Allen White, turned heads for all of the right reasons – showing that he scrubs up just as well as outside of the kitchen!
Lisa says: “Jeremy has embraced his natural texture, and I love that he’s attended such a prolific event with natural curls; it’s refreshing to see men with hair that is a little longer, looser, and in a more natural state – but still giving that groomed look.”
Curl Specialist Tori Kiff adds: “Jeremy has styled his curls back, which opens his face up and shows off his baby blue eyes. By pairing his curls with a tux, he is the perfect combination of styled and smart, with a touch of rugged and relaxed. I hope seeing Jeremy’s curls will encourage more men to embrace theirs.”
The much-loved Jenna Ortega stepped out in sexy, silky, pleated Gucci number – with hair that’s a world away from Wednesday’s trademark black braids.
“Chocolate is the gorgeous undertone I see here,” says Siobhan Haug, salon co-owner at Haug London Haus. “Those bronzed Gucci pleats are a subtle tone-on-tone complement to the warm chocolate nuances within that cool shag haircut. Our in-salon colour portfolio, IGORA Royal by Schwarzkopf Pro, has the most delicious range of chocolate tones on every level, which is perfect for recreating this look. Think coco blondes, velvet brunettes and melted chocolate on a light brown level.”
Also commenting on Best Actor for Motion Picture Drama winner, Austin Butler, Siobhan says: “I love his effortless waves offset with that sharp tux. Nothing says expensive like relaxed hair paired with precision tailoring. Incredible!”
Selena Gomez looked effortlessly elegant in a strapless black gown, paired with a ponytail. Jack Kilpatrick, owner of JKP Hairspa, Whitstable says: “I love this hairstyle on Selena as it looks effortless yet classy. The hair has an undone, lived-in feel with soft texture, which keeps it looking youthful and fun. To create this on a client, I would dry the hair upside down to add volume at the root. I would then put in some loose waves using a wand to create a hint of movement. I’d use my hands rather than a brush to put the hair up into a high ponytail – this prevents it looking too slick and neat. Wrapping a small section of hair around the band elevates it and to finish, I’d add hold and a subtle shine with a light hairspray”.
