Golden Globes 2014: Best Hairstyles

The 2014 Golden Globes were a fantastic experience. I’d been looking forward to the Red Carpet for weeks and am I glad to say that it did not disappoint! When it comes to Red Carpet hairdos we saw some really great looks this time round. We had stars sporting their signature hairdos and some pretty trademark trends that have been all the rage this past one year as well as some really fresh new looks that we weren’t quite expecting! All in all, it has been a fantastic Red Carpet and it sure spells great things for the year to come! Here’s my take on some of the best looks from the 2014 Golden Globes. Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I did.

1. Amber Heard

Amber Heard’s messy, voluminous, crazily teased-out high bun is one of the most talked about hairdos from the 2014 Golden Globes. The hairdo might take a little bit of practice before you can get it to look just right but with a little bit of patience and some trial-and-error, you should be able to achieve it in no time: all you need is a rattail comb for teasing your hair, a bunch of bobby pins and a stronghold spray. This look is all about the volume, from the pouf at the front to the artfully backcombed and pinned high bun. While most celebrities tend to make a fashion statement with the clothes they’re wearing or their makeup or their jewellery, this statement is really all about the hair.

Messy enough to look fresh and flirty, but classic enough to be the right fit at a formal event, this hairdo is definitely one of the best we’ve seen in recent times.

2. Lupita Nyong’o

This stunning actress has been killing it all of last year with one great Red Carpet look after another. Lupita’s fashion-forward choices have rightly earned her the top spot on many a Best Dressed list. It’s fairly safe to say that everyone, including myself, is very excited to see what Ms. Nyong’o will be wearing to this season’s awards shows.

As far as the Golden Globes 2014 go, her stunning tomato-hued gown with scarlet undertones is undoubtedly one of the best looks of the night. And if you can tear your eyes away from that fiery ensemble for just a moment, you’re sure to fall in love with the rest of her look.

The daring buzz-like cut is not for the fainthearted, that’s for sure! But with her bone structure, gorgeous features and dazzling smile Lupita sure makes the look work. I picked this hair statement as one of my favourites from the night simply because it just goes to show that a daring, unconventional hairstyle can look every bit as glamorous and beautiful as the classics. It’s all about loving your own look: do that right and everyone else will follow!

3. Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel with her trademark bangs and baby-blue peepers was another one of the evening’s trendsetters. Zooey’s romantic side updo marked quite a departure from tradition though, for the New Girl actress is known for wearing her hair loose. This lovely side updo has a distinctly romantic, Victorian vibe to it and makes for a great look for any occasion so whether you’re attending a gala or looking to make an impression at an important business meeting, you’re sure to be quite the hit. For a more festive take on the look you can add a large flower like Zooey here.

4. Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock is yet another star who’s been the fashion world’s favourite over this last year. With some really groovy wardrobe choices and a great performance in Gravity to her credit, Sandra Bullock’s been wooing the crowds and the paparazzi like the total pro she is.

Sandra Bullock’s side-parted, over-the-shoulder ponytail might not be quite what you expect from a major star at the Red Carpet, but that is exactly why it is so refreshing. From the elegant makeup to the classic ponytail, Sandra’s look at the 2014 Golden Globes was all about simple, refined beauty. Those who are into more creative or complex hairstyles might not be too impressed with this hairstyle but it sure is a hit with me! Nothing says “stylish” quite like an effortless hairdo that stands out amongst a bevy of other trends!

5. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is such a bright, young woman and it really is no surprise that she’s the global media’s darling. This young actress is not only super talented and super gorgeous, she also has such a refreshingly fun and unapologetic personality. And she’s sure bringing it through with her gorgeous pixie cut. Jennifer’s decision to crop her hair short made one of the strongest beauty statements of the year and it continues to be one of the industry’s favourites.

For the Golden Globes, Jennifer’s spunky pixie cut was styled into a smoother, shinier version of its usual, messy self. If you’re planning to get your hair cut into a spiky pixie, take a leaf out of Jennifer Lawrence’s book for when you have to attend formal functions and you’re worried about your hairdo not being sophisticated enough.
