The Swinging '60s Are Back Thanks to the Biggest Beauty Trend at the Golden Globes

The 73rd annual Golden Globes red carpet was filled with rainbow-bright metallic gowns, but in the beauty department, the winning trend that stood out the most was all about the swinging '60s. Stars like Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry all took inspiration from the mod decade to make their looks stand out under the flashing cameras.

Lopez brought back the iconic hair flip with the help of Lorenzo Martin. The hair expert deployed a 1-inch curling barrel onto small sections to create the mod style. Each curl was pinned to further lock the loop in place. After allowing the strands to cool down, Martin added enviable shine with the help of L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum ($7; lorealparisusa.com). No hairstyle from the '60s is complete without a spritz of hairspray. Martin completed JLo's trend setting look with the brushable formula of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray ($15; lorealparisusa.com).

Gaga slayed once again, from her Versace gown to her bright blonde strands that reminded us of Marilyn Monroe. Frederic Aspiras worked his magic on her platinum hair with the help of KMS California Hair Play Playable Texture ($21; ulta.com). The vegan formula kept Gaga's waves in place throughout the evening, while also allowing the hair to maintain a soft bouncy finish.

While we were in love with her hair, it was her retro eyes that really took things to the next level. Gaga's brows were defined with Giorgio Armani Eye and Brow Maestro in #2 and #5 ($34; giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com). Then her top and bottom lids were lined in Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Noir Intense ($27; lancome-usa.com), and her makeup artist Sarah Tanno stopped the bottom line just before her tear ducts. The first-time Golden Globe Award winner also took a page out of Sophia Loren's book with white eyeliner ($26; lancome-usa.com) mixed with a hint of navy Giorgio Armani Eye Tint #2 ($38; giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com) for an added modern twist.

Perry hit the scene with the color of the year on, but her massive bouffant ultimately captured our hearts. Long layers were parted down the center and perfectly framed the singer's face. To recreate Perry's sky high style, tease hair at the crown for maximum height, then comb hair back while leaving a few pieces out in the front. Curl the remaining strands in the back in opposite directions to add movement to the fab hairdo.
