Another year, another round of award shows. In 2021, we’re kicking off the year with the Golden Globes, but unlike in other years, the show is being held virtually. Although there isn’t a real red carpet, that isn’t stopping celebrities from stepping up their fashion and beauty A-games. From Sarah Hyland’s princess-like red hair, to Amanda Seyfried’s classic glam look, to Andra Day’s two-toned lipstick, to Laverne Cox’s milkmaid braids, here are the best beauty looks of the 2021 Golden Globes.

Andra Day

The updo, the baby hairs, the highlighter, the two-toned lip, oh my! Day did not come to play with her stellar beauty look for her big night. She’s nominated for her role as Billie Holiday in The United States Vs. Billie Holiday and for Best Original Song for the film.

Amanda Seyfried

Fekkai Artistic Director Renato Campora created Seyfried’s flawless blowout by first creating a deep side part, then applying Fekkai's Brilliant Gloss Perfecting Crème for that red carpet shine. She used a 1.5″ curling iron to create the waves, pinning them up for 10 minutes to let them cool, then brushing through them for that bouncy effect. She wrapped up by adding Fekkai's Texturing Spray for the final oomph. Seyfried’s daughter tried to help her mom get ready too, but instead, the Mank star allowed to brush her mama’s hand (an equal honor, in our opinion).

Angela Bassett

Bassett’s thigh-long braid stole the show at the Golden Globe Awards. “Braids are a big trend right now and we wanted something that would be off the face but still have the drama,” said hairstylist Randy Stodghill, who made teensy-tiny braids that are weaved into her long hair, making it a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it detail. To give her hair extra shine, he added a few drops of PhytoSpecific Baobab Oil over the finished look.

Sofia Carson

Carson looked fierce AF at the Golden Globes, just like the drugstore mascara she used. Of course, we also love her stunning updo. Hairstylist Caile Noble describes it as Old Hollywood meets Parisian chic, and we couldn’t agree more. To achieve the look, he first used the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum to smooth out Carson’s hair and tame flyaways. He then parted her hair on the side, back combed the hair in the crown to create lift, and gently pulled the hair back and twisted it into place securing it with hair pins.

Amy Poelher

Co-host and all-time girl crush Amy Poelher stunned on the red carpet with her super-shiny waves, flushed cheeks, and nude lips. Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath used the Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Professional Flat Iron to curl her hair in 1 1/4″ pieces and used the Philip B. Lovin’ Pomade to give her that high-shine finish. Before serving face on the red carpet, makeup artist Molly Stern used the Pause Well-Aging Fascia Stimulating Tool to sculpt Poehler’s cheekbones to perfection.
