The Best Golden Globes Hair and Makeup
Best Full Waves: Salma Hayek
INSIDE SCOOP "The look tonight was Hollywood noir," said Hayek's hairstylist Robert Vetica. "We added a bit of length to complement the noir vibe." After blowdrying the hair with a round brush, Vetica curled two-inch sections with a small curling iron, making sure to twist away from the face. "I kept the curls tight knowing the length would help it drop into a loose wave," he adds. To finish, Vetica brushed through the spirals, teased the roots, and misted with hairspray.
Most Unexpected Hairstyle: Nicole Richie
WHY WE LOVE IT This architectural ponytail-with its structured turns and curves, courtesy of hairstylist Andy LeCompte-took the star from boho beauty to Hollywood starlet.
Best Hair Accessory: Charlize Theron
INSIDE SCOOP The diamond headband Best Actress nominee Theron wore was vintage Cartier-and lives full-time in a private Cartier museum in Geneva. "Because the jewelry was so special, the hair had to be understated," hairstylist Enzo Angileri told us. Before pinning and twisting the hair into an undone bun, he spritzed on Moroccanoil Frizz Control to tame flyaways and fuzz. "I wanted to choose my own messy pieces," he said.
Best Retro Look: Julie Bowen
WHY WE LOVE IT Full disclosure: We will never get sick of retro-sets on the red carpet-especially when they're as pitch-perfect as Bowen's. The soft, touchable texture and polished part kept it feeling fresh, not fussy.
Best Knotty Updo: Piper Perabo
WHY WE LOVE IT The Covert Affairs star's dress had a lot in common with her hair: Simple on first glance, full-on glamour upon further inspection. Even better? The twisty, ropey structure is easy enough to recreate at home. Grab a handful of pins and go wild!
Best Red Lips: Angelina Jolie
WHY WE LOVE IT Should we be surprised that Hollywood's most glamorous beauty knows a thing or two about red lipstick? The tone-a bright poppy hue-had a satiny finish that pairs perfectly with the crimson lining of her Atelier Versace gown.
Best Manicure: Zooey Deschanel
WHY WE LOVE IT After we gushed over her gorgeous bangs, her lush lashes, and her overall adorable-ness, we noticed her manicure: Tiny black and white tuxedos. "I am wearing a gown but my nails are wearing tuxedos!!!" she Tweeted.
Best Smoky Eyes: Emma Stone
WHY WE LOVE IT When your eyes are sea-green and your hair is fiery red, you don't need wild makeup colors to make a statement. Stone's long-time makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created a diffuse smoky eye with blacks, grays, and silvers.
Best Neutral Glow: Kate Beckinsale
INSIDE SCOOP "By using primer and tinted moisturizer, we were able to admire Kate's natural complexion," makeup artist Molly Stern told us. She highlighted the star's cheekbones with a swirl of bronzer and NARS Highlighting Blush in Miss Liberty, a shimmery peachy. Gold and brown accents on the eyes accentuated their hazel tones; a high-shine nude lip added low-key glamour.
Best Nude Lipstick: Lea Michele
INSIDE SCOOP "With Lea, I like to choose one of her features and emphasize it," makeup artist Melanie Inglessis told us. In this case, she turned up the volume on Michele's eyes, but kept her lips quiet. "Matte lipsticks are very modern," she adds.(Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere, a peachy, fleshy hue, was used here.)
