Tips & Advice
Best of the Golden Globes 2014
Last night saw the true kickstart to Hollywood’s annual awards season, with the Golden Globes bringing all the brightest stars out in their absolute finery for the evening. While some of our favourites were snatching trophies, we were just as glued to the fashion and beauty winners on the night. Creative Director Guy Cammarano gave us his insights on the best looks at this year’s Golden Globes 2014, along with tips for getting these looks for yourself.
“The Golden Globes set the bar for the rest of awards season and this year is no exception with a variety of colours and styles on the red carpet.
“Jennifer Lawrence rocked this season’s most daring look – a short blonde crop – showing off her stunning Dior Haute Couture dress perfectly.
“Despite what people may think, a super short crop can be incredibly feminine, highlighting defined cheekbones and framing the eyes. The key to keeping the look girly is to add movement through the cut with shorter layers and lines on top. A fringe swept to the side like Jennifer will also bring this style to life.
“The best thing about the crop style is that you can spend as much or as little time on styling as you like which makes it the perfect choice for someone as laidback as Miss Lawrence.
“The ombre trend also showed no signs of fading with Olivia Wilde combining the look with mermaid waves to tone down her sparkling green Gucci dress. Ask your stylist for lightened sections through the bottom half of your hair and curl randomly with a combination of rollers and curling irons for a natural look. Run a smoothing product such as Wella SP Sublime Reflection (£20) through your hair to tame frizz and flyaways.
“For me, Cate Blanchett won the award for best style with her voluminous faux bob. To recreate her look, place heated rollers through your hair before styling and fix with a light hairspray like Wella SP Perfect Hold (£14.20).
“Take them out when they have completely cooled down, roll hair into the nape of the neck and pin into place. Try to follow the natural wave created by the rollers and smooth with a hair oil if necessary. If you are having a few problems pinning hair into a neat roll, my secret tip is to form a base of grips on the head first, then roll hair and fix to the base. This will also make sure it stays in place all evening.
“The side bun favoured by Zooey Deschanel is the perfect example of how a beautiful hairstyle doesn’t need to be the most complicated.
“The key to nailing this style is to forget ‘perfect’. Instead work quickly with the hair creating twists and loops and gathering into a rough bun at the nape of the neck, and slightly to the side.
“Hair pieces are going to be huge this year too, so try adding a flower, bow or bunpick for extra interest.”
