Golden Globes 2018: The noteworthy men’s hairstyles from the awards ceremony

Leona | 08 January 2018

The boys are playing the girls at their own game! See the best men’s hairstyles from the Golden Globes 2018, here! 


Perhaps the most hotly-anticipated event on the industry calendar, the Golden Globes is attended by all the big names in the business (sadly our invite got lost in the post… or so we are told).

With the likes of Emilia Clarke and Dakota Johnson in attendance, we of course watched eagle-eyed for their red carpet looks – but it wasn’t just the women who served up some fantastic hairstyles, as the gents certainly brought their A-game, too!

From 2017’s much-loved buzzcut to the classic crew cut, see the hairstyles worth knowing from the biggest male stars in our Golden Globes 2018 roundup, below.

The best hairstyles from the Golden Globes 2018

Ewan McGregor

Not even Ewan McGregor’s controversial speech could distract us from his totally on-trend hairstyle. With his rugged beard and medium brown hair styled in a side-swept finish, Ewan is nailing the hipster look all the cool guys have been wearing lately.

Editor’s tip: To achieve this look on fine hair, spread the VO5 Thickening Gel Foam evenly through your hair to create thickness and volume. As as added bonus, you don’t need to worry about that crunchy feeling after, as it will give you a 24-hour hold with a natural finish!

Daniel Kaluuya

Since his starring role as Chris in the Golden Globe-nominated Get Out, Daniel Kaluuya has been growing out his hair and opted for a smart afro for the awards ceremony. Keeping his ‘fro styled to perfection, Daniel added a skin fade which cuffed his ears.

While he may have lost out on the Best Performance by an Actor award, we predict huge things for Brit star Daniel – watch this space.

Joseph Fiennes

The Handmaid’s Tale may have won big last night, but it was Joseph Fiennes’ commanding style that we noticed.

Looking like he has just stepped off the set of the hit TV show, Joseph was very much channelling his on-screen character, Commander Fred Waterford, by wearing his medium-length brown hair neatly combed back. We don’t know what Offred would think of this look, but we think it looks pretty sauve.

Alexander Skarsgård

When Alexander Skarsgård opted for a rather questionable haircut back in October (honestly you have to see it believe it), we didn’t quite know how he could claw back into our hair goals shortlist. So when we spotted Alexander on the red carpet with a buzzcut, we have to admit: we were relieved.

Keeping his blonde hair short, Alexander joined the likes of Brooklyn Beckham and the Jonas brothers by working the popular buzzcut trend – which we predict will be huge in 2018, FYI.

Milo Ventimiglia

The This is Us actor looked as dashing as ever with his medium-length flow hair styled in a parted and swept-back finish. If you have followed Milo’s hair journey, you will know he never puts a foot wrong, from short crew cuts to boyband hair, he has tried them all – but his flow hair has to be his best look yet.

Editor’s tip: Get Milo’s high-shine finish by using the VO5 Groomed Extreme Style Grooming Pomade. By smoothing and controlling unruly locks, this nifty product will give hair a more defined finish that’s ideal for more formal situations.

Steve Carell

Although there is an array of fashionable hairstyles available, Steve Carell decided to buck the trends and kept his look classic. We have to admit, we couldn’t quite imagine Steve with a man bun, could you?

Styling his salt and pepper hair (that’s a blend of grey and natural hair colour, BTW) cut in a short crew cut, Steve looks very dapper and a lot unlike his Despicable Me character Gru… thankfully!
