The Industry's Take on The Best Hair Looks from The Golden Globes 2023

The Golden Globe Awards were back for 2023 – and after a few years off, we couldn’t wait to see some of the biggest stars in TV and film walk the red carpet. We caught up with hair industry experts to get the lowdown on some of the star-studded guest list’s hair looks, plus top tips for replicating them in the salon and barbershop.

Best Musical/Comedy Television Actor winner, Jeremy Allen White, turned heads for all of the right reasons.

Hairstylist Lisa Carter says: “Jeremy has embraced his natural texture, and I love that he’s attended such a prolific event with natural curls; it’s refreshing to see men with hair that is a little longer, looser, and in a more natural state – but still giving that groomed look.”

Curl Specialist Tori Kiff adds: “Jeremy has styled his curls back, which opens his face up and shows off his eyes. By pairing his curls with a tux, he is the perfect combination of styled and smart, with a touch of rugged and relaxed. I hope seeing Jeremy’s curls will encourage more men to embrace theirs.”


Austin Butler

Salon Owner Siobhan Haug couldn’t get enough of Best Actor for Motion Picture Drama winner, Austin Butler’s relaxed waves, commenting: “I love his effortless waves offset with that sharp tux. Nothing says expensive like relaxed hair paired with precision tailoring. Incredible!”

Jim Shaw, Director of TONI&GUY Billericay, adds: “When it comes to the best men’s hair looks at this year’s Golden Globes, Austin Butler most definitely stole the show with his almost ‘straight off the beach’ hair look. The style looked effortless yet cool and sexy. These low maintenance, little to no styling looks will be a huge trend amongst clients as we transition from winter into spring, and then will surge in the summer months of 2023.

“Austin’s look was full of movement and flexibility and for me, the best way to achieve this style is by applying a pomade or paste into the hair and then using a hair dryer to direct the hair in different positions for that ‘roughed up’ messy finish. Finish with a mist of hairspray to keep the look in place.”


Emma D’Arcy

“Emma’s look screamed ‘too cool for school’ and I loved it,” says Alex Thaddeus, Owner of Alex Thaddeus Hairdressing. “Their grungy, short style was sleek with a wet look finish to give it even more attitude. This style will definitely polarise people – you’ll either love it or hate it. For me, it was the perfect style to complement their oversized blazer and skirt and trouser combination. Definitely a showstopper on the red carpet.”


Evan Peters

“Evan’s hair was slightly textured and tousled as he stepped out in a classic tuxedo for the 2023 Golden Globes. A stark contrast to his style whilst playing the part of Dahmer in the nominated show,” Brian Leo McCallum, Owner of Roar Hair and Beauty Salon Group, tells us. “This style portrayed the image of the ‘all American’ actor, which I love for the red carpet.

“The key to this kind of look is the texture, you need to work with a pomade or texture spray to help mould and manipulate the hair to fall as you want it to.”


Chris Perfetti

“Chris is someone who is making his mark on the acting scene in America but also internationally, and on his first red carpet appearance, he oozed ‘trendy sophistication’”, says Darrel Starkey, Taylor’s Hair Studio. “Opting for the perm trend, the top section of his hair was left quite heavy to encourage the curl and volume throughout. The sides of the hair were taken quite short and kept very close to the skin, creating a real dramatic feel to the whole style.”


Andrew Garfield

“Andrew Garfield is a fantastic ambassador for men’s hair,” says Andrew Heasman, International Creative Director for Rush Hair and Beauty. “He is very on trend, has a fantastic head of hair to work with and always opts for something a little unique to work in with his style for the chosen occasion.

“At the Golden Globes, he really worked in the volume to his hair, opting for soft perm curls throughout the top section and keeping the side and back very simple and sophisticated. The look itself was very structured and portrayed a feel of strength and masculinity.”
