Celebrities on tonight’s Golden Globes red carpet showed that there’s no longer such a thing as “award show hair.” Hollywood’s biggest names passed up the expected intricate updos and bouncing glamour curls for much trendier looks — ones you probably already have on your Pinboards, but now have a whole new reason to try. From blunt chops to daring new color to the latest styling tricks, see the eight best hairstyle trends from the Globes — and who wore them best.
Lobs are so 2014. On this red carpet, the chops went chin-length and were styled with a nod to the roaring ’20s.

2. Shade-Shifting Color
It’s not quite blonde, it’s not quite brown… and it’s definitely not your typical shade of red. These unusual hair colors have kept us guessing and talking.

3. Nutty Brown Dyes
Brunettes had a moment on the carpet, with the best in class sporting a rich nutty brown hue with delicate undertones that radiate a glowing warmth.

4. Hard-Angled Side Part
We’ve all taken a rattail comb to our tresses and parted our hair a liiitttle more off to the side than normal. But the hard-angled part we saw at the Globes took the dramatic look to a whole new level of cool. All we have to say is, challenge = accepted.

Lorde: Who’s that girl with the majorly minimal, extra-long pony? Lorde, surprisingly, who’s ditched her signature curls for a look that feels more grown-up but still has an edge thanks to that wrapped black fabric. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
6. High-Gloss Curls
Traditional Hollywood glamour curls get a decidedly modern makeover with a slicked-back, high-shine finish.

7. Rich Roots
From a delicate peep to a not-trying-to-hide-it contrast, darker roots had their time in the spotlight on this year’s red carpet — and the nod to natural hues looked gorgeous.

Bumped-up-to-there hair finally feels modern with sleeker twists on classic styles like the beehive and bouffant.
