New year, new ‘dos. Time and time again, celebrities have catered Us with major hair inspirations with their bold color changes, drastic chops and Rapunzel-esque hair extensions – and 2023 is no different.
Lily James proved that a lob is always a good idea when she arrived at the 80th Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Jan. 10 with shortened locks. The Pam & Tommy actress’ haircut is inspired by the ’90s, according to her hairdresser, Halley Briskerwho made his magic famous Sydney Sweeney, Simon Ashley and Sadie Sink.
For James, Brisker styled her crown in bouncy curls, with Great Lengths hairpieces for “extra volume,” the beauty guru revealed via Instagram. Her locks were also prepped with Olaplex. In addition to debuting a new length, James unveiled a warm maroon hue, which stood out against her red Versace dress. The color transformation comes after the Baby driver star rocked a blonde, jet black and strawberry blonde crown in 2022.
Kaley Cuoco also went dark for the Golden Globes, dropping her trademark sunny mane. On the red carpet, the Flight attendant actress flaunted the look, sporting curtain bangs pulled up into an intricate chignon. The hairstyle was a perfect complement to Cuoco’s lavender Vera Wang dress that draped gracefully over her baby bump. (The Meet Cute actress and her boyfriend, Tom Pelphreyannounced in October 2022 that they are expecting their first child.)
From the hair arrangement, hair barber, Christine Symondstold Us weekly exclusive: “The dress was ethereal and had the most beautiful bows and jewels on the straps, so we knew we wanted to put the hair up so as not to distract from the simple elegance of the dress.” The beauty guru added that she prepped Cuoco’s hair with Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Leave-In Styling Treatment and Clairol Shimmer Lights Thermal Shine Spray for “heat protection.”
Cuoco and James weren’t the only ones to roll out a transformation at the ceremony. Brad Pitt had fans swooning over his neat haircut.
