The Industry’s Favourite Golden Globes 2024 Hair Looks

Published 09th Jan 2024 by Chlo Weldon

It’s safe to say the Golden Globes 2024 was as glamorous as ever. And since we’ve already heard from team HJ on their favourite hair looks from the evening, we wanted the lowdown on what the hair pros had to say on their favourite looks.  

Here’s the industry’s favourite Golden Globes 2024 hair looks and their top tips on how to recreate them…

Tina Farey, Editorial Director at RUSH on Margot Robbie

“Margot Robbie looked as impeccable as always at this year’s Golden Globes. She wore her hair draped to the back with effortless, bouncy curls paired with lots of shine. A polished look we would expect from Barbie!

“To create this look, I would firstly prep the hair, washing with a conditioning shampoo and conditioner to ensure the hair is as healthy and moisturised as possible. I would then work the KMS Moist Repair Revival Creme through towel dried hair and comb through for styling prep before blow-drying. Next, curl the hair with a large barrel curling tong to create movement and pin these into place allowing to cool and set before removing the pins for ultimate bounce.  

“Always brush the hair gently using a wide tooth comb to break up the curls and create a more effortless, soft effect before lightly scrunching hair oil through, to give further gloss. Finish by misting through a small amount of setting spray to hold the style in place. Don’t be too heavy handed with the product – the key to this look is that it looks soft, luxe, and has an almost effortless finish.”

Suzie McGill, Artistic Director at Rainbow Room International on Billie Eilish

“I loved Billie Eilish’s unique look at this year’s Golden Globes. Billie sported a more low key, slicked back bun hairstyle with hair poking out, also referred to as the off-duty model bun or the ‘snatched bun’ and paired this with a two tonal look adding a vivid pillar box red hair colour to her dark base for an edgy contrasting and statement look.

“When creating this look, using a product that will tame all flyaways and provide the hair with a strong hold is key. Schwarzkopf Osis+ Rock Hard is one of my favourites for creating this look, which I use alongside a narrow dressing hairbrush/backcombing brush to brush the hair back off the face, picking up all flyaways to create the slicked back look. Once you’ve created a high ponytail at the back of the head, start by creating your bun, twisting into place leaving out around two inches of hair before pinning into place. The loose ends help to give this style a more contemporary, high-fashion, and elevated finish. Finally, mist through some shine spray to finish the look.”

Brian Leo McCallum, Owner of ROAR Hair & Beauty on Emma Stone

“Emma Stone showcased a beautiful new hair look at this year’s Golden Globes and I was obsessed! Emma looked to have had her bob cut shorter, enhancing the shape and her gorgeous red hair colour. Her fresh new cut was teamed with flicked out hair styling that takes inspiration from the 1950s/1960s. This styling is making a comeback for 2024 and is being worn softer, with a smooth and shiny appearance and volume at the roots for a modern take on the trend.

“When creating this look, I would start by washing the hair with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner. Then, apply a volumising spray such as Goldwell StyleSign Ultra Volume Soft Volumiser Blow-Dry Spray, into damp hair before blow-drying smoothly with a hair dryer and round brush. To create the flipped ends, use a heated styling iron to smooth over the hair, bending around two-three inches from the ends. Finish with hairspray to give the hair a lightweight hold and intense shine.”

Tracy Ann Smith, ASP Global Ambassador on Kate Beckinsale

“Kate looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet with her hair a little different than ever before.  Wearing a sheer sequin dress, the theme was high glamour and her hair matched this perfectly with a glamorous high ponytail, complete with high shine and small velvet bows to accessorise. Working to a middle parting, the hair was sectioned, leaving the fringe loose and the rest of the hair styled into a high ponytail, secured at the crown.

“When creating the ponytail, you want this to be as smooth and slick as possible. Working with the ponytail, backcomb at the top to create a great lift, then smooth this out with a small tail comb. Next, you want to use a large barrel tong to give the wavy look – keeping this big and voluminous. Once cool, gently brush the ponytail out using a soft bristle brush and use a professional shine spray to finish. Finish the look by adding small velvet bows.”

Bruno Marc Giamattei, JOICO EMEA Creative Director on Taylor Swift

“America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift oozed old Hollywood glamour at the Golden Globes with a beautiful voluminous wave look with a gorgeous statement fringe to complement her gorgeous green Gucci dress. The look is something which is so simple yet creates an incredible statement look.

“To begin, it’s important that the hair is prepped and ready for the red carpet. Begin by washing the hair with K-Pak Clarifying Shampoo and Conditioner. Next, when the hair is 80% dry, use a small amount of the Dream Blowout Thermal Protection Spray, distributing from roots to ends. When drying the hair, use a large barrel brush and focus heat at the root to encourage lift and volume. When dry, split the hair into sections and use an extra-large barrel tong, tonging inwards to give the most effortless looking waves. Once tonged and cooled, brush out and finish with a light hold hairspray to keep the hair in check while allowing free flowing movement.”

Ainsley Gray, F&M Hairdressing on Julia Garner

“Julia was one of my favourite looks from this year’s red carpet. Wearing a low neckline dress, Julia really channelled her own individuality, opting for a tight curl crop with plenty of texture and volume throughout.

“To recreate this style, it’s all about creating that gorgeous curl and texture, and working with the client hair pattern to achieve this. Firstly, prep the hair with a volumising shampoo and conditioner like the Wella Invigo Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner. Once washed, evenly distribute a small amount of Wella EIMI Curl Shaper throughout – this will allow you to create gorgeous curls. Next, use your diffuser attachment when drying and use your hands to gently scrunch the curls to encourage that beautiful texture throughout.”
