The Globes or “Beard Parade 2017” as Jon Hamm joked was a hairy affair. Proving elegance doesn’t have to mean clean-shaven; Ryan Reynolds, Chris Pine and Casey Affleck all rocked some serious facial hair. Also bearded was designer/director, Tom Ford who knows a thing or two about being camera ready. Follow his lead when dressing up.

You may not be getting an up-do, but that doesn’t mean leaving your hair un-did. “Shiny texture is back” according to AXE Hair celebrity stylist, Amy Komorowski who’s clients include Eddie Redmayne, Ryan Reynolds and Adam Driver. Her take on the Golden Globes, “We saw a resurgence of shiny hair last night and a departure from the popular matte ‘no product’ look. Pomade was the go-to product used to create a clean, classic style.” To channel your inner Colin Farrell, Brad Pitt or Tom Hiddleston; Amy suggests using AXE Smooth Look Shine Pomade, $5.25. “Apply a dime-sized amount to wet or damp hair and run a comb through to lock hair into place for a look that has just the right amount of shine.

And when it comes to black tie grooming, you’ll never go wrong sporting a classic, old Hollywood vibe. “One look that never goes out of style is a clean, side part or slicked back hair. A popular go-to for award shows, this look pairs nicely with a classic tux or suit for a super pulled together look that works on all hair types and flatters every face shape.” If you want to look polished like Ryan Gosling, Rami Malek or Aaron Taylor Johnson; she suggests using AXE Clean Cut Look Classic Pomade, $6.89. “While hair is damp, take a generous amount and really work it in, from roots to ends. Comb hair from front to back, making sure to get the sides and back as well. Depending on your style, you can keep it tight or run your fingers through to loosen the hair a bit. Have fun and experiment with side parts or none at all. Finish off with a bit more pomade and hairspray for hold”
