The SAG Awards: Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Lose

The major hair trends we saw at the Golden Globe Awards repeated themselves at Sunday night’s Screen Actors' Guild Awards show – some were great, and some disappointing. 

The ponytail worn high on the head was seen on several Hollywood A-Listers with the hair pulled straight back, parted on the side or parted down the middle.  

In all variations, the hair was sleek and close to the head and the ponytail hair was straight and smooth, as on Angie Harmon, Amy Adams and Juliana Margulies.

 This style is classic, elegant, and very youthful. While usually thought of as a casual or tailored look, we saw how the ponytail also works well with any style ball gown. I like the simple ponytail and also like that I can transform it into elegant up-dos to give my client many different looks for many different occasions.

 I was disappointed with the few up-dos that did make their way down the SAG’s red carpet; they were lacking creativity and either too-dated, high school-prom-looking or too severe. January Jones and Natalie Portman looked beautiful in spite of their too flat, too close-to-the head up-dos, not because of them.

Another trend was long hair with pronounced wave, a nice change from the stick-straight long hair Hollywood has been obsessed with for the last decade -- way too long for any trend to last, in my opinion. 

Soft, sexy waves are flattering to women of almost any age and make a more mature woman much more attractive than totally straight hair. Stars who wore this look wonderfully are Kyra Sedgwick, Hilary Swank, and Mila Kunis

As I predicted in my last blog, men's hair is finally trending to longer lengths after many years of super-short styles.  

The actors at the SAG Awards seem to be keeping the long hair grown for a film role long after they called it a wrap.  

Christian Bale's hair was cleaner, neater, and somewhat shorter than at the Golden Globe Awards a couple of weeks ago.  

Jeff Bridges also seems to be enjoying his 70's retro longer style.

John Hamm of Mad Men wears the classic, clean-cut style of the 60s well on and off screen, as does Matthew Morrison of Glee.

We’ll be critiquing more award-show hair, culminating with the crème de la crème for these celebrities and their watchers – The Academy Awards. Ciao until next week!
