Our first look back at great hair at the Golden Globes features gorgeous Halle Berry, a winner that year for best actress in a miniseries (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge). The hair is classic Halle: short, sexy and tousled for a look that screams award-winning confidence.
Not everyone can pull off the oversize updo, but if anyone can do it with poise and elegance, it’s Julia Roberts. She did it at the 2001 Golden Globes where she took top acting prize for her role in legal drama Erin Brockovich.
Eternal sweetheart Reese Witherspoon switched things up with her tresses in 2002, and instead of keeping things long and sleek, she gave us pretty pin curls that showed off her heart-shaped face and added some sex appeal to her Golden Globes look.
If anyone is the consummate expert in achieving the best in beachy waves, it’s Kate Hudson who did not disappoint at the 60th annual Golden Globes. The soft, shoulder length waves (the just back from surfing kind) looked great with her strapless Valentino dress.
Stunner Charlize Theron stole the show where hair was concerned in 2004 when she showed up on the red carpet in a romantic side-swept wavy style with the addition of a chic clip completing the look. The delicate yet flattering style perfectly complemented her pale yellow Dior dress.
On the wrong person in the wrong outfit, ringlets don’t always make for a sophisticated hairstyle, but in 2005, Emmy Rossum really made ringlets work. They were bouncy, shiny and her hair was long enough to make the look chic versus childish.
Some faces are made for short hair and Natalie Portman has one of those faces. Her perfect pixie cut at the 63rd Golden Globes is a great example of just how fresh, fun and gorgeous a short haircut can be.
Tanned, toned and always polished, Emmanuelle Chriqui showed up at the Golden Globes in 2007 with a wow-worthy hairstyle right out of the 1960s — and we loved it. Bouffant on top and long and tousled everywhere else, the look was perfectly suited to the mod green cocktail dress.
In 2008 the Golden Globes were canceled due to the Writers Guild of America strike that started the previous fall.
The serious bling here really takes this award-worthy hairstyle up a few notches. We love how the sparkly accessory draws just enough attention to her look while also acting as a secondary piece of jewelry.
There’s something totally timeless about long, loose blond waves, and in 2010, Amanda Seyfried owned this look and made it look easy. At first glance, the style might seem too simple, but we think that’s what makes it chic.
Another blonde Golden Globes look we loved was from John Hamm’s other half Jennifer Westfeldt, who wore a relaxed yet elegant style to the awards show that year. The delicate waves are well-accompanied by a sleek gown and pretty drop earrings.
Last year’s it-girl Rooney Mara offered a refreshing departure from all those longer looks and feminine updos. Her Golden Globes hairstyle was sophisticated with an edge that we thought totally suited the girl with the dragon tattoo.
