BN Beauty: Top 10 Hair & Makeup Looks from the 2014 Golden Globes!



You’ve seen the gowns, you’ve seen the winners, now it’s time for BN Beauty’s Top 10 Hair & Makeup looks from the 2014 Golden Globes!

The annual event held yesterday, and once again had the world glued to their screens as its A-List (and not so A-List) celebrities filed out of their Limos to a roaring crowd and the hope that they would be taking a shiny golden award home.

But before the finger crossing and acceptance speeches, the stars – who were primped and prepped by the best – had time for some breathtaking beauty shots on the red carpet.

BN Beauty has been itching to share since we saw them, so without further ado …

BN Beauty presents our Top 10 Hair & Makeup Looks from the 2014 Golden Globes. Check on it!


1. Paula Patton

Top 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 20140011

Let me just say it: Robin Thicke hit a gold mine when he married the stunning actress Paula Patton. Looking beautiful in a pristine white Stephane Rolland couture gown, Paula went for a simple sleeked back bob in brunette, placed delicately behind her hair to accentuate those dazzling diamond earrings.

2. Hayden PanettiereTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014008

Hayden looked retro chic at the event with a new twist on her bob. With dark roots for a contemporary edge, she had a blonde sleeked back bob with a subtle puff at the front.

3. Amy Adams

Top 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014009

The buns are in ladies and gentlemen. Giving some major detail to her hair, Amy Adams was elegant with her braided detailed up-do.

4. Amber HeardTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014004

Fresh from the bedroom and unto the red carpet. Amber’s messy up-do gave another meaning to the word bed-head. The minimalist hair do paired with her smoldering makeup looked effortless.

5. Taylor Swift

Top 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014003

Taylor Swift took it to the 90’s with her inspired blonde faux bob.

6. Olivia WildeTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014006

It may sound weird but this has got to be one of my favourite looks of the evening. Mum-to-be Olivia Wilde looked simply effortless as her baby bump did all the talking. Olivia sported a gorgeous ombré hair that was placed in a simple side part.

7. Rashida JonesTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014007

This is one hairstyle for the young-ins. I absolutely love how youthful this is – a braided bun with bangs. And the quadruple earrings create that chic retro effect that adds even more youth to the look.

8. Mila KunisTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 20140010

Say hi to Mila! Going for a bare lip and dramatic eyes, Mila took it all back with a sleek and smooth low bun. No parts, no frills, she let her pretty face do all the talking.

9. Jennifer LawrenceTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014001

J-Law took cropped hairstyles to new heights with her riffled cropped pixie cut. The pixie had various levels of blonde and dark brown running through the hair with some definition in the front.

Speaking on why she cut her hair Jennifer told Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer,“I don’t know, I cut it earlier, and it was just kind of like [shoulder-length] and it grew to that awkward, gross length, and I just kept putting it back in a bun, and I said, ‘Well I don’t want to do this,’ so I just cut it off. It just couldn’t get any uglier.”

She definitely avoided the awkward length look by cutting her hair low again – perhaps this could become her signature look? – in the short do. Her Golden Globe makeup look was created by makeup artist Ve Neill.

10. Sarah HylandTop 10 Hair Favourites from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014002

Another favourite for the beauty team! With a beautiful milkmaid braid the Modern Family actress paired her hair with a dewey look and bold brows.


1. Kerry Washington

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014002

Look at her glow! Mum-to-be Keri Washington looked ever so graceful at the event in her custom-made Balenciaga gown. The Scandal actress had a metallic look paired with a light shimmery lip.

2. Lupita Nyong’o

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014001

Lupita looked gorgeous with her gold shiny eyeshadow and high-shine red lipstick to match that show stopping gown.

3. Sandra Bullock

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014003

Who says matching your lip and dress isn’t a match made in heaven? Sandra Bullock looked effortlessly pretty with a slight smoldering eye and a pink pout.

4. Ariel Winter

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014004

The Modern Family star, Ariel Winter looked all grown up with her simple yet mature look. The actress decided to keep it simply baby doll with long whispy lashes and a light pink lip.

5. Zooey Deschanel

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014005

The blue eyed beauty that is Zooey Deschanel stuck to the whimsical with a beautiful yet retro red lip and her blue eyes to boot. She completed her look with a Jennifer Behr silk flower and floral earrings. She looked classic Deschanel.

6. Helen Mirren

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014006

This is one for the older gals. Sometimes, minimal is the right way tot go. Helen Mirren looked absolutely gorgeous with her simple look that transformed her to one of the belles of the ball.

7. Zoe Saldana

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014007

High fashion was the theme for Zoe Saldana as she took the runway to the red carpet. With a beautiful sleeked bun, Zoey kept it simply beautiful with a red lip and thin false lashes.

8. Cate Blanchett

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014009

There is something ageless about Cate’s face that just makes makeup seem unnecessary. Looking glamorous with her faux bob, Cate opted for a pink lip and a rosey glow.

9. Emma Roberts

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 2014008

This is another favourite for the BN Beauty team. Emma Roberts couldn’t have done better with her makeup look. The star took to the dark side with a grey smoldering eye and nude lips. Plus the drastic comparison to her turquoise blue earrings is just stunning.

10. Emma Watson

Top favourite Beauty looks from 2014 Golden Globes - BellaNaija - January 20140010

What’s our favourite part of Emma’s look? Her eyes. She’s smizing away… (Thanks Tyra!) Is it just us or was she oh-so-ready for the camera?

That’s it. Our favourite looks from the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. We must admit, the stars didn’t really bring it like we thought they would, but you can’t help but love them all the same.

Haven’t seen the list of winners and other red carpet looks? Check them all out HERE.

    Nigerian female celebs, take note. These women are ALL wearing make up, and see how fresh their faces are. You don’t need a rainbow of colours on your face, neither do you need eyebrows that will make Nike threaten you with copyright infringement for stealing their signature tick. Y’all overdo the make up, it hides your facial features. See Emma Roberts, that is how to ROCK a smokey eye. I can also bet that they didn’t use 28 products on their face. Take note @thatigbochick.
    Please you female celebs should aslo take note of the hair too. The oyinbo people who naturally own the hair, don’t have hairdo’s that drown their faces. No abnormal lengths or fullness. Many of these women are wearing hair extensions, lots of them are, even Cat Sadler, but it is not humongous with 500 waves and curls.
    Kerry Washington darling, you see that your recent weight loss doesn’t fit you. Pregnancy has revealed how beautiful you can look with a little more flesh. I had almost forgotten she was that weight before the agressive slimming down. Olivia Wilde too, case in point. Pregnancy looks good on both of you.

    Paula Patton! My biggest girl crush ever!!! Didn’t like her dress though, but I love that chic!
    Amy’s bun is perfect for her dress.
    Zoé Saldana just inspired me, we have same hairline, never worn my hair all back.

    I know this is about hair but I just want to say I saw the awards yesterday and one side of Paula Patton’s dress looked like a spaceship ready for take-off. I don’t know what she was thinking.

  9. Mz Socially Awkward...

    No inverted nike sign eyebrows, no sharp edged eyebrows, no blush looking like you connected with an angry fist. Nigerian MUA take note.

    • Don Draper of Mad Men

      January 13, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      LOL. All Naija MUA are guilty of this! maybe with the exception of Bimpe Onakoya!

  13. gracie

    naija celebs should take care of their skin first, when u have good skin u would hardly need to layer cement on ur skin all in d name of foundations and concealer…let ur eyebrows grow and shape them to suit ur face, i see that all eyebrows in naija are arched like the famous nike sign regardless of their facial structure, shape or size…also u can use 28 products and still come out and look like u are fresh out the shower..right colour foundation,concealer,eye shadows and all…..p.s a blush is suppose to warm the face up and not look like u have a bruised cheek.

  14. gracie

    January 13, 2014 at 3:54 pm

    look at all the hollywood celebs and tell me which 2 or 3 brows are the same…but Alas! naija MUAs all have measuring sticks to draw all their client brows the same with sharp edges, some going so high that they have an effortless supprised look.

    this Paula Patton babe has really bleached her skin kai!
    She’s now white.

    • Mama Mia!!!

      January 14, 2014 at 1:10 am

      You people have come here again abi? Please, lecture me on how she’s bleached… I think most movie awards have the classiest bunch but when it comes to music and our black mentality the fake weaves keep churning out Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and so many fake long hair over the place that is where Naija celebs learn their fashion statements from. Ratchet if you ask me…

    They have good weather and their skins are most likely free from breakage. The story aint d same here, we have different type of weather, hence the need to do more with makeup. Really I don’t like using too many products, but if u are well acquainted with makeup, you’ll realise its cos d environment here isn’t that face-friendly that’s why our MUA tend to work with more products. Its not always their bad

      Nope. Disagree about the weather. They have worse weather. We’ve either got cold (never as cold as theirs anyway, depending on the place) or dry(never as dry as theirs sef. The water in some parts of the UK?!) or rainy. The only thing i think we’d need more is the make up that doesn’t let your face run with all the sweat etc(Doesn’t mean more make-up either). We need to eat right too and act right to reduce general stress and stop giving excuses when we’ve been blessed with so much.
