From Tina Fey’s gorgeous brunette hair cascading down her shoulders to Amy Poehler’s signature blond “let-it-be” hair, the 2014 Golden Globes delivered plenty of style. Old fashioned Hollywood glamor, it would seem, was back, but so were sleek bobs and pin-straight hair (thanks Jennifer Lawrence).
Here are a few showstopping moments and trends from the Globes.
Hollywood Glamor Hair

Both Taylor Swift and Cate Blanchette appeared on the red carpet with hairdos and gowns that paid tribute to old, classic Hollywood. The idea was clear: use curlers and create wavy hair that looks so very Marlene Dietrich meets Grace Kelly.

From Emma Watson to Julia Louis Dreyfus several celebs sported polished low, sleek buns at the Globes—so timeless and elegant. Watson offset the sedate bun with her edgy backless Dior dress draped over tight pants combination.
For her makeup, Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee used the Éclat Lumière Highlighter Face Pen on Emma’s eyelids and under her brow bone, and Waterproof Mascara in Noir. For her lips she used Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Exaltée and Coromandel without a liner.

Amy Poehler is not one known for standing still, and Votre Vu makeup artist Brett Freedman wanted a fresh, not overdone look that accommodated her triple duties as host, red carpet attendee ,and nominee. He started by prepping her skin with Votre Vu Attentive Crème du Jour for extra hydration and used a Smashbox primer. The foundation in Love Me Deux in Cannes provided a lift of color, and he also used a powder-bronzer on her skin. Beaute En Bronze was a bronze/blush duo that Brett used on Poehler’s cheeks did not appear too saccharine. A nude gloss completed the look.

The Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence continued to rock her chic pixie cut in amplified fashion, while Reese Witherspoon gleamed with flat-ironed, pin-straight hair.

Actress Leslie Mann joined the long, sleek and beautiful hair train. She rocked a gorgeous lace gown with peplum detail on the red carpet, and hairstylist Lona Vigi created an “effortless yet feminine” look to complement the dress. Vigi gave the actress a deep side part, and used Biolage Styling Agave Nectar Control Gel throughout her damp hair to give it shape and body. After blow drying, Vigi applied anti-frizz products and used a flat iron to produce the sleek end results. A bit of Biolage ExquisiteOil Strengthening Treatment applied to the fingertips and run throughout Leslie’s hair gave that glossy look.

Stars like Michelle Monaghan and Julianne Hough rocked long, flowing tresses with hair that shone at the Golden Globes afterparty. To get Michelles’s look, Oribe hairstylist Luke Chamberlain used Maximista Thickening Spray and blew out her hair with a medium-sized brush. He used rollers to curl and Supershine Moisturizing Cream with hairspray to finish.

Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave had her regal makeup done by Chanel’s makeup artist Nick Barose, who said that the inspiration came from Nyong’o’s showstopping red dress. For luminous skin, he used Sublimage La Crème Ultimate Skin Regeneration Texture Fine moisturizer. Rather than contouring the face, he applied Blush Duo Tweed Effect Brun Rosé to create a “lit from within” effect—which does wonders for photos. The idea behind her lip color was a stain that would complement—not match—the tone of her dress (Le Crayon Lèvres Precision Lip Colour in Rouge Profond followed by Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pirate).

Big Bang Theory actress Kayley Cuoco, who is not afraid of trying new trends and big bold colors on the red carpet, turned to Chanel manicurist Ashlie Johnson to do her nails for the Golden Globes. The result was a a metallic green nail to accentuate the antique tones and florals in her dress. Her theme for the night was “green goddess.” To get the look, Johnson used two coats of Chanel Limited Edition Le Vernis Nail Colour in Alchimie.
Shining, Glowing Skin
The ladies of Downtown Abbey set the standards for lovely, English rose, porcelain skin, exemplified by Michelle Dockery’s elegant and almost regal presence on the red carpet.
Celebrity makeup artist Jordan Long for Votre Vu wanted an old Hollywood glamour look—soft and feminine with a little color to pop against the muted oyster shell tone of her dress. Skin prep was essential: a tiny amount of Attentive Crème du Jour all over the face and neck as well as a tiny bit of the Luxee Yeux Eye Beauty Balm around the eye contour set the stage. After prepping skin and applying foundation, Jordan used a foundation brush to apply Vu-On Rouge in Ma Cherry. Bronze on the forehead and cheekbones, and a dusky pink on the lids helped create a glow. The lips are what everyone noticed: these were done using a lip liner, and French Kiss in Chloe on top.
