Best & Worst Hair
Motherhood certainly agrees with Golden Globe nominee Sarah Jessica Parker (for best actress in a musical or comedy TV series) in every way. The new mom (to son James, born in late October) sports blonde tresses that are swept off her face with a barrette and cascade elegantly down her back.
Actress Joely Richardson (The Affair of the Necklace) brings old-school glamor to the Golden Globes with her delicately waved blonde tresses (Rita Hayworth, anyone?), which are complemented perfectly by her ornate diamond-drop earrings.
Curb Your Enthusiasm's Cheryl Hines is a winner in more ways than one – her HBO show walked away with the honor for best musical or comedy series, and her honey-colored updo, with its gently curled tendrils, is a knockout, framing her face in a lovely way.
Laura Linney is a knockout with her fabulous, shiny copper-blonde curls, creamy skin and to-die-for cheekbones.
Sarah Wynter of 24 gives a nod to the heady 1960s with her hairstyle, a funky updo that's pulled back tightly and then topped with multiple coils. Her jewel-encrusted silver gown, featuring tummy cutouts, completes the Australian actress's put-together ensemble.
Though Jennifer Aniston walked away a Golden Globe honoree for best actress in a comedy series, her fellow Friends star Courteney Cox Arquette is a winning presence on the red carpet with her long, luscious brunette locks, which frame her face beautifully.
Someone please tell Sharon Stone to stop trying to emulate the one-of-a-kind Tina Turner. The usually dazzling actress, a presenter at this year's Globes, misses the mark completely with this teased-up, ash-blonde 'do.
CAP IT OFF
Secretary's Maggie Gyllenhaal (a nominee for best actress in a musical or comedy film) seems to be channeling Eddie Munster in this overdone, cap-like 'do. She would have been better off sticking to the more youthful, tousled look that's become her signature.
Her wide appeal made her movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, a runaway hit, but first-time nominee Nia Vardalos's magic touch didn't extend to her tresses. Her smile is radiant, but she tops it off with a too-tight, shellacked-looking style that does nothing for her.
Meryl Streep is known for her dedication to her roles -- which has paid off with her Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a motion picture for Adaptation. But clearly that same care didn't go into her hairstyle for the Globes ceremony: Her limp locks are livened up only by the frizzy flyaways.
Oh Beyonce, why? Usually the singer-actress dazzles with her blonde locks, but at the Golden Globes she tries out an outdated, layered look that definitely isn't award-worthy.
Did Heather Graham forget to do her hair? Her dress and makeup are red-carpet ready, but her frizzy hair looks unkempt and takes away from the rest of her ensemble.
