Glitz and glamour? Check and check!  

It’s awards ceremony season! A time when we get to bask in the glow of the A-list stars and gaze green-eyed at all the incredible celebrity ensembles. To kick things off, yesterday saw the 2019 Golden Globes awards ceremony take place in Beverly Hills, California – and boy-oh-boy was it a dazzling mane affair.

With so many inspiring styles floating along the red carpet, we were hard pressed to narrow the selection down, but we got there. Take a look and see which hairstyles we couldn’t take our eyes off..

The best hairstyles at the Golden Globes 2019

1. Lucy Boynton’s tousled bob

One surefire way to own the red carpet is with a showstopping haircut. And, actress Lucy Boynton did just that with this soft, voluminous wavy bob. If you’ve been thinking about getting a cut, this is the sign you’ve been waiting for.



Editor’s tip: When it comes tousled bobs, volume is everything! If you want long-lasting, visibly thicker strands, we suggest you try the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Thickening Balm

Smooth a small amount into your palm and spread it evenly through damp hair before blow drying, to achieve this airy look.

All eyes were on leading actress and singer Lady Gaga and we like to think it has everything to do with her new blue hair colour.

6. Emily Blunt’s fishtail braid

If anyone’s going to convince you how to learn how to master a fishtail plait, it’s Merry Poppins star Emily Blunt. For the ceremony, she worked her mane into this romantic fishtail braid, which we’re positive will be a hit on Valentine’s day.



Editor’s tip: The secret to perfecting your plaits? Using a braid balm, like the TONI&GUY Flexible Hold Braid Balm. This nifty product will give your hair added grip and structure, making it easier to braid and ensuring it stays in place longer.

Model of the moment Emily Ratajkowski shocked fans when she stepped out with a brand new bob at the Golden Globes 2017 awards ceremony, this year. But don’t be fooled: this was the workings of a faux bob!

We heard through the grapevine that Emily didn’t commit to chopping off all of her locks, but instead cut in some face-framing layers, and pinned up her longer strands back, to create the effect of a glamorous, wavy bob. Clever, eh?

We’re guessing that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was feeling inspired by the bun cuff hair trend, because her red carpet hairstyle featured a high, messy bun, with a metallic silver cuff accessory. Refined and oh-so-chic, this hair accessory is one of the simplest ways to make any look red carpet-ready!
