It's the thing that frustrates us most about awards shows (other thanwomen only being asked who they're wearing): Some of the most elaborate,thought-out,and highly anticipated celebrityhairstylesof the entire year are happening,and yet we only get to see many of them from the front.When it comes to updos in particular,it's always the back we're really dying to see.Yet even when actresses spin around to show off the backs of their gowns on the red carpet,they often keep their heads turned toward the camera (acting school 101,we assume).You can even forget getting a decent look at the back of a winning actress's hairstyle while she walks up to the stage,unless the person happens to be a particularly awkward/slow stair climber and you don't blink much.And while it appears that red carpet photographers are finally trying harder to grab back-of-hairstyle photos for us—we're seeing more of them with every event that comes around,hallelujah—sometimes we still have to really hunt for them.
Because we've always gotyourback (see what we did there?),hunt for all those elusive 360-degree hair photos is exactly what we did during last night's 2016Golden Globes.And they prove that some ofthe best williamhill388beauty momentsof the whole night happened in the rear-view mirror—meaning even avid watchers could easily have missed them.
Our favorite from-the-back hair statement of the evening belonged toBrooklynstarSaoirse Ronan,whose hair was a Grecian-goddess fantasy worthy of her Saint Laurent gown—and best viewed from the back.For the gorgeous metallic thread detail,hairstylist Adir Abergel created two braids then hand-wrapped them in gold twine.
Swedish actressAlicia Vikanderwas also feeling the goddess vibes with her white gown and low twisted bun by stylist Chris Naselli for Tresemme,who prepped her hair with sea-salt spray for extra hold.
Cate Blanchettsurprised us with a waterfall braid in the back of her sideswept updo by Robert Vetica for Philip Kingsley.
Then,of course,there wasRooney Mara,who basically made the entire night all about her giant braid—perhaps in part because we've just never seen the clean-lines-loving williamhill388beauty wear anything close to big hair before.Credit once again goes to Adir Abergel (he's a busy guy).
An even twistier situation was happening on the back ofJaimie Alexander's head.Don't missthe how-to photosposted by stylist Andrew Fitzsimons,who was going for a knotted effect (he added extensions for more volume).
And what's a formal event without an appearance by that most classic of updos,the French twist?Rachel McAdamswore an updated version with very voluminous roots—one ofthe biggest Golden Globes 2016 williamhill388beauty trends.Hairstylist Mark Townsend used "tons,and I mean TONS" of dry shampoo to get this lift.(Fun fact: Her sisterKayleen,who we love,did her makeup.)
Kate Winsletwent with a romantic asymmetrical updo by Renato Campora for Fekkai."It looks almost like a faux bob," he says.
We were all waiting to seeGlamourcover girlJennifer Lawrence,and her low knot by Jenny Cho didn't disappoint ...from any angle.
Then there are always those reassuring glimpses of hairstyles we could actually copy without professional help,likeKate Bosworth's hairstyle.From the back,it's a basic ballerina bun (perfected by stylist Bridget Brager).This,we can do.
