If you thought glitzy hair accessories (sparkly pins, velvet scrunchies, and the like) held the same seasonality as Christmas lights — to be packed away after holidays and not seen again until next December — the Golden Globes best-dressed list will swiftly change your mind.
As usual, the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet was sprinkled with million-dollar diamonds on loan for the evening. Though it wasn't the sparklers dripping from ears or 13-carat ruby rings that got our attention on the red carpet, but the diamonds popping out of the updos.
Ahead, check out the best hair looks from this year's Golden Globes red carpet, and let this be the push you need to keep your bejewelled clips in rotation for a little while longer.

Caitriona Balfe

With a soft and simple makeup look — courtesy of makeup artist Mary Wiles — hairstylist Gareth Bromell opted to give the Irish actress a quick, pre-show trim. He accessorised the fresh chin-length bob with sparkly, diamond hair pins.

Nicole Kidman

The internet seems to be divided on whether the big velvet hair bow in Nicole Kidman's updo was tres chic or overkill. Our opinion? The velvet accessory was the perfect finishing touch.

Kate Mara

Celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman partnered with OGX to deliver this killer updo on Kate Mara. Richman used the OGX Liquid Pearl shine serum to give the hair some slick before pulling it up into a topknot. As a finishing touch, he wrapped the base with thin gold glitter twine.

Lupita Nyong'o

From the front, Nyong'o's hair might appear to be pulled into an ordinary updo. But from the back, you can see the most delicate blue beaded piece, braided in through the end of the hair by genius celebrity stylist Vernon François.
