For Theron’s half-up hairstyle, celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir) was inspired by her Dior gown (and who could blame him). “The color-blocking in the dress inspired me to create complimentary contrast in the hair with the half-up style,” he said. “ I played with dual textures—high shine in the back with soft texture through the front.”

Sandra Oh

Co-host and an award-winner at the Globes, Oh also nailed her beauty look. Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson (@tedgibson) created her Hollywood-glam ‘do, curling strands and setting them with pins to keep bounce, then securing the bottom into a faux bob.

Kaley Cuoco

Celebrity hairstylist Christine Symonds (@christinesymondshair) gave Cuoco a “simple, effortless, and cool” hairstyle, she said, but because it was an awards show, she added a sparkle accessory in the back.

Lady Gaga

Gaga got her winter blue hue thanks to the creative magic of celebrity hairstylist Frederic Aspiras (@fredericaspiras), who also crafted her red-carpet style, sweeping her hair into a ponytail and twisting hair into a half bun, leaving the ends of the hair out to each side of the head, then curling them into shape. 

Lucy Boynton

Celebrity hairstylist Jenny Cho (@jennychohair) created the wavy bob of every girl’s dreams at the Globes. “Lucy is the golden goddess of the night, with this head-turning Celine dress. I love her hair cut right now, so for this look I wanted to add body and texture for an extra glamorous look,” Cho said.

Janelle Monáe

Monáe donned an Egyptian-themed look on the carpet and tapped her go-to woman for all things hair, celebrity hairstylist Nikki Nelms (@nikkinelms), to create the intricate braided ‘do. She topped off the style with a gold leather hat, because she can.

Kate Mara

Mara turned it out on the red carpet with the ultimate updo inspo. Celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman (@ryanrichman) slicked her hair back and up into a tight topknot, then wrapped the base with thin gold glitter twine.

Rachel Brosnahan

If you haven’t fallen in love with Midge in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Brosnahan’s red carpet look is one more reason to. Celebrity stylist Ashley Streicher (@streicherhair) pulled the actress’ hair into a low and tousled, romantic look, leaving the front soft and side-parted to complement the golden yellow Prada gown with an open neckline and back bow detail.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Curtis traded in her salt-and-pepper hair for an icy-white hue just in time for the Globes, and people are loving it. Celebrity hairstylist Sean James (@seanjameshair) blow-dried her hair with a round brush for volume and lift, resulting in a timeless style.

Isan Elba

Celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan (@justinemarjan) created Elba’s flawless, soft waves at the Globes, detailing the hairline with extra hairspray and a toothbrush.

Emily Blunt

For Blunt’s fierce and feminine look, celebrity hairstylist Laini Reeves (@laini_reeves) took inspo from Joan of Arc. Reeves created a Dutch braid (aka fishtail) “because it showed femininity but with undone texture,” she said. Neil Lane vintage jewels were entwined in the braid for extra sparkle.

Nicole Kidman

Kidman opted for a classic style, and celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath (@kyleeheathhair) delivered. She sectioned out the front of the hair and pulled the rest into a low ponytail. Then she curled loose hair and wrapped the pony into a low bun, tying the style together with a black velvet bow.
