“Saturday Afternoon” Hair at the Golden Globes 2015

This past Sunday night we watched the Hollywood Foreign Press bring all the celebrities together to award the best in TV and film. Its considered a precursor to the Oscars and sometimes forecasts this years winners.

The¬†Golden Globes usually help us hair¬†stylists¬†to see how fashion’s trends then and now come together in an elegant affair and on the red carpet. It can also help us steer our clients towards newer styles all year long. Here we review what we saw!

Below you will see examples of medium, medium long and long length hair in one of ¬†the signature styles of the night that we call,”Saturday Afternoon.” It looks done but not over done and would be a great and versatile “day into night” style for the everywoman. It incorporates an off center part with a soft and relaxed swoop of the front and soft, extra loose waves .You can achieve this by using a mousse like Body Builder by Kevin Murphy when blow drying roots for lift with your fingers. With Anti-Gravity as a foundation blow dried into the mid shaft to ends, use a medium heat curling iron with 1.5″ barrel. Curl horizontally in large sections ¬†and release. Brush the curls ¬†with a cushion brush once cooled and spray with a flexible hairspray.

Regardless, we found it difficult to be inspired by any other looks because of how simple they were. They did not take ANY style risks. Many women parted their hair in the middle with predictable beach waves (example: Gwyneth Paltrow ) or slicked the middle parted hair into a bun or ponytail (example: Kate Hudson). Katie Holmes even donned a super long extensions ponytail that didn’t quite satisfy as a hairstyle. (see all below)

¬† ¬† ¬† We were inspired by two showings on the red carpet, do not fret! We are a big fan of reinventing the classic bob as it can be classed up or funked up. Rosemund Pike of “Gone Girl,” and Zosia Mamet of, “Girls,” (seen below) both reinterpreted the bob for this event. Rosemund opted for an inverted angle, sleek ¬†traight texture and deeply parted on the side. It says chic and sophisticated and abandons the standard long hair known so well to the celebrity set. Zosia took the interpretation to color and sported a unique “grey beige” tone that refines the overtoned smoky¬†blond look into a cultivated style. ¬†She then combined it with a little “Saturday Afternoon” wave on the ends and created an accessible style with some funk. A great product to style hair with to achieve this look while also conditioning your hair simultaneously is Young.Again by Kevin Murphy. Its a weightless leave-in treatment oil infused with Immortelle to counteract the oxidization and ageing process.

Although we did not see any courageous moves now, we still look forward to the upcoming awards season. Maybe the stylists in Hollywood have some secrets in their back pocket for later we do not know about!
