This year's Golden Globes was nothing short of legendary. Hollywood finally began to have the conversations many would call taboo. Every actress wore black to support the #metoo movement that has recently started to expose sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood. Oprah won the Cecille B. Demille lifetime achievement award and gave a riveting speech on what it means to be a woman.
What Are the Golden Globes?There are a good number of award shows, and if I am honest, I thought they were all the same until like last year. The Golden Globes are not like any of the other awards shows because the audience sits at round dinner table rather than the traditional theatre scene. It is also always the first award show of the year. They are accolades given to 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign.
An All Black AffairAs I mentioned before everyone at the Golden Globes wore all black this, and they all slayed the red carpet too. But here’s the tea on why everyone was wearing all black. At first, the blackout was just speculation on social media but then on January 2, the New York Times revealed that this coordinated wardrobe was part of a more significant organized campaign called the Time’s Up Movement. Stars banded together to make a statement about the sexual assault epidemic plaguing Hollywood. Many stars even took activist as their plus ones for the award show.
Times Up MovementI know this article is about hair, but it does not hurt to understand why this award show was so important this year. With that being said we have to discuss the Times Up Movement. The motto for this movement is “The clock has run out on sexual assault, harassment, and inequality in the workplace. It's time to do something about it.” This movement aims to end all forms of sexual harassment, assault, and inequality for women in the workplace. They have already raised more than 16 million dollars for legal defense for people have experienced harassment in their workplace.
Best Hairstyles from the 2018 Golden GlobesOkay now let’s get to the hair... I feel as though all of the actresses on the red carpet looked stunning in their all-black attire, but some hairstyles stood out all lot to me. Here are some of the best hairstyle from the 2018 Golden Globes.
Tracee Ellis RossThough she is known for her big and beautiful curls, Tracee threw us for a loop this year because she did not showcase her curls at all. Instead, she opted for a black silk head wrap. The turban was from Marc Jacobs and paired with a bold red lip. She covered her hair to support the movement.
“I wear black today as a “we” not as an 'I,' as a celebration of our collective power as women, as an embodiment of sisterhood, solidarity and the work being done to create structural change." -Tracee Ellis Ross
