The new year is always off to a great start for all the hair and makeup artists out there in terms of inspiration for the months ahead, thanks to awards season! The Golden Globes has set the ball rolling, with many more, big events coming up.
This year, we’ve seen a lot of unmistakable bridal fashion, not just for hair and makeup, but also in clothes. White was a hugely popular colour at the Golden Globes, worn by many gorgeous celebs, so if your brides are looking for wedding dress fashion guidance, direct their searches here! Having these gorgeous bridal style gowns gracing the red carpet gives us wedding hair and makeup artists an even better idea of how current celeb styles would look, walking down the aisle.

The casual bride look is well and truly in for 2017 and Sienna Miller shows this off perfectly on the Golden Globes red carpet.
The queen of effortless cool, Sienna is always our go-to gal for seeing how to pull off informal style that still exudes elegance.
Just a flash of her super toned, tanned abs in her Michael Kors Collection dress is enough to make this style the leader of understated sexy but this might not have looked so great if it had been paired with hair and makeup that was too over-done. Instead, Sienna opted for a simple high pony, complete with a cute black bow and pretty natural looking makeup.
The overall look gives off an almost sporty feel, but somehow when combined with her choice of vintage jewelry, it all comes together in a kind of modern day Audrey Hepburn way.
There’s no denying that Lily Collins brought an air of fairytale glamour to the red carpet that was tough to rival. Dressed in a rose gold Zuhair Murad ball gown from the A/W 16 collection, she looked nothing short of traditional princess!
Lily’s hair was possibly our favourite style of the night and one that we expect to see a lot of on brides-to-be this year. The ‘messy bun’ taken to a whole new level – towering and fabulous, adorned with woven in fishtail braids.
Lily’s makeup choices broke away from the subtle, shimmering trend that we’re seeing so much of already in 2017 and instead she went for statement brows and a dark red, almost gothic lip.
Alicia Vikander was flawlessly styled by the incredibly talented Victoria Sekrier for this year’s Golden Globes, dressed in a lightly sequined, ruffled Louis Vuitton apron gown.
It was a great night for Alicia, nominated for two major awards, but we really feel as though she deserves an extra award for her utterly gorgeous, romantic hair and makeup.
Her makeup was kept subtle and was all about the glow! Her skin was luminescent with a well-hydrated finish and her eyes were soft yet defined with tawny, shimmery shadows – this year’s answer to the smoky eye.
As for Alicia’s hair, we absolutely love her choice of a chic, twisted chignon that keeps her locks pulled away from her face, giving a really fresh, youthful look.
Grecian is back in a big way on the runway this year and Lily James showed us how it’s done with her a-symmetric flowing dress with attached cape.
Although the dress is a true classic, Lily has kept her hair cutting edge with a sassy shoulder length cut styled into loose, messy waves, creating the ideal counter-balance between grecian goddess and cool. We would also love to see her hair styled into a Grecian over-the-shoulder style that we teach on our hair courses.
Her soft, grey smoky eyes were the perfect makeup choice – just check out that smoulder! Her lips have been kept nude though, so as not to over do it. Good call!
