A ‘hair-raising’ awards ceremony

Hollywood awards season is in full swing in the run-up to next month’s Oscars and glamorous stars sporting fab hairdos were strutting their stuff at the recent Golden Globes in Los Angeles.

Arguably the standout hairdo in terms of all-out glam appeal was worn by Best Actress nominee, J-Lo (aka Jennifer Lopez), who totally nailed it with a Rapunzel-style braided bun of note.

There were one or two striking pixie cuts on the red carpet, most notably Zoe Kravitz, whose sleek and ultra-short fringed do showed off her perfect bone structure. Olivia Coleman, who won a Best Actress Golden Globe in the Best TV Series category, sported a similar style, only less sleek and with a longer fringe.

Best Actress winner in the Limited Series category, Michelle Williams, looked slightly retro with her chin length platinum bob that had a 1930s-Jean Harlow style wave to it.

Also going with a platinum hue but with conspicuously dark roots, nominee Margot Robbie had a beyond-the-shoulder length style, with one or two subtle waves.

Zoey Deutch opted for an auburn-hued, slicked-behind-the-ear bob with flicked edges, a style similar to that worn by the very blonde Reese Witherspoon.

Priyanka Chopra looked glam in long, side-swept, ‘old Hollywood’ style waves with bouncy edges, a look similar to that of model Winnie Harlow. Nominee Saoirse Ronan had a straight-haired version of this ‘old Hollywood’ style.

Best Supporting Actress winner, Laura Dern, sported the ultimate long, blonde beach waves.

A severe, slicked back bun isn’t the most flattering of styles but one that nominee Scarlett Johannsson managed to pull off.

Kerry Washington chose a side parted, non-fringed, blunt cut bob that curled inwards slightly at the edges.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who won the Best Actress Award in the Television Series - Musical or Comedy category, had a very unusual short style, which consisted mostly of pin-curled bangs.

Best Actress Winner in the Best Film category, Renee Zellwegger, wore a consciously messy bun, with a cheek-length parted fringe framing her face.

Redhead Rose Leslie sported an elegant updo that had a few, well tamed tendrils strategically wafting around her face.
