Golden Globes Hair Trend Spotting: Deep Side Parts

Golden Globes Hair Trend Spotting Deep Side Parts

While plenty of different beauty looks were seen on the red carpet at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards, there was one major trend we spotted on the stars: deep side parts. Whether the hair was left down or pulled into a ponytail or updo, the deep side part was definitely the look to have.

Sandra Bullock’s hair was given a deep side part before being pulled into a relaxed side ponytail, and Emma Watson’s hair was sleeked into a side part before being wrapped into a messy-but-chic chignon.

A deep part was the foundation of Cate Blanchett’s retro-inspired faux-bob, and Kerry Washington’s hair was given a side part before being coiffed into shiny, loose waves.

Other stars who wore the trend include Reese Witherspoon, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Margot Robbie, Kaley Cuoco and Sarah Paulson.

To get the look at home, use a rat tail comb to get a precise line. Then, if you want a voluminous final look, apply a soft hold mousse, like Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse and for a sleek final ‘do, go for a shine serum like Alterna’s Caviar Anti-Aging Polishing Serum.

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Kerry Washington was undeniably glowing—for more reason than one—on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night (January 12).

The pregnant ‘Scandal’ star and best actress nominee showed off her baby bump, which she called ‘her little accessory,’ in a custom Balenciaga pale green celadon gown, accented with an embellished brooch at the bodice.

Fitted, but not overly clingy with a near peplum-like draped detail, this was a classic way to show off her new curves—we’d expect nothing less from Kerry.

Fred Leighton jewels, including chandelier earrings, along with simple, side-parted loose waves, a soft smokey eye and glossy nude lip, all paired nicely with the subtle radiance here.

The white Balenciaga minaudière clutch and Casadei sandals, on the other hand, felt a bit too stark for my taste.

Who Wore J. Mendel Better…Amber Heard or Kerry Washington?

Who Wore J Mendel Better Amber Heard or Kerry Washington

Back in August Amber Heard wore a summery white J. Mendel dress featuring sheer inserts to the press conference for ‘Paranoia’.

She styled her pretty dress with just nude pumps and a simple ponytail.

Kerry Washington wore the same dress a few months later for PaleyFest’s ‘She’s Making Media’ panel held in her honour.

I wasn’t fond of the length of the frock on Kerry, nor of her choice of accessories, especially that Hunting Season clutch, so Amber wins for me.

Kerry Washington In Erdem - Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Back on Halloween night, Kerry Washington made a guest appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her hit TV show ‘Scandal’.

Some of you were keen to find out who she wore, so I am delighted to share that her look was from Erdem’s Spring 2014 collection.

The black-and-white floral-embroidered two-piece textured look featuring a sleeveless top and a skirt with a sheer overlay and banded hemline was styled with black Louboutins and a fun pair of bunny ears.

Maternity chic or ghoulish?

Kerry Washington In Shoshanna – The Elle DeGeneres Show

Kerry Washington made a guest appearance on ‘The Elle DeGeneres Show’ on Thursday, where she shared how exciting it is to be featured on so many magazine covers, saying that her mother is in charge of archiving all of them.

She dressed her growing baby bump wearing a Shoshanna ‘Selma’ floral-print shift dress in spring-like blue hues, which she styled with nude Christian Louboutin pumps, her ever-present Movado watch and a gold Dana Rebecca Designs cuff.

I love that her style is firmly back to where it was prior to the announcement of her pregnancy. I’m thankfully starting to forget that icky period.

You can buy Kerry’s Shoshanna ‘Selma’ Floral-Print Shift Dress on sale at Neiman Marcus.
