How did the SAG Awards measure up in the hair stakes?

The 28th annual SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards took place on 27 February in Santa Monica, California, and a number of striking hairdos were evident on the red carpet.


Kerry Washington was all about classic Hollywood glamour, with long, structured curls flowing down one side of her face from the deepest of side partings, a la the iconic 1940s screen siren, Veronica Lake. Very similar looks were spotted on Alexandra Daddario, Reese Witherspoon and Cate Blanchett.


The slicked back style of hair was very much in evidence on the night. British actress Catriona Balfe had her dark hair scraped entirely off her face in a somewhat severe look. Selena Gomez did the same, only with a centre parting, while Hailee Steinfeld opted for a side-parted version but with a gelled strand of hair running across her forehead to add an edgy element to the look.


Greta Lee had a chin length, fringeless, middle-parted A-line bob. Also going for a bob, but this time medium length and blunt-cut, was Vanessa Hudgens.


Rosario Dawson wore a twisted and twirled top knot right at the crown of her head, with Laverne Cox rocking a half updo, where the top part was in a fountain like, golden blonde ponytail but with mahogany roots.


Lady Gaga’s platinum blonde locks cascaded past her shoulders in gentle waves. Jennifer Hudson’s hairdo was one of the most flattering and simple of the night – just lightly teased for some lift at the top and then pulled back from her face and left to cascade loosely down her back


Jessica Chastain’s trademark long red hair was severely tucked behind the ears, while the legendary Helen Mirror rocked an almost tiara-like big, pale pink headband over pulled back hair.


Salma Hayek had a high, textured and somewhat messy ponytail. Jada Pinkett Smith sported a barely there buzz cut, which showed off her exceptional bone structure and features.


Kirsten Dunst’s lob-length blonde hair was all one length and gently curled at the ends, for a flatteringly soft look.


The star of the Korean TV series sensation ‘Squid Game’, HoYeon Jung rocked a long plait, with British actress Juno Temple wearing an equally long fishtail, paired with messy bottleneck bangs


Nicole Kidman’s hairstyle was fulsome to say the least – a mass of strawberry blonde and very long soft waves that skimmed beyond her chest. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz)
