One year after going entirely virtual, the Screen Actors Guild Awards returned with a bang — kicking off what’s sure to be another exciting award season. Similar to past SAG Awards, this year’s show continued with its no-host tradition, however, that didn’t put a damper on the star-studded evening in the slightest. Attendees were dazzled by Hamilton stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Daveed Diggs, and Leslie Odom Jr. opening number and got to witness five-time SAG Award winner Helen Mirren receive the much deserved SAG Life Achievement Award by Kate Winslet.
Of course, we were just excited to sell all of the gorgeous hair that Hollywood’s biggest stars and their glam teams blessed us all with on the red carpet. This year’s best actors showed up and showed out, bridging forth a solid serving of phenomenal red carpet hair. From sleek bobs to dreamy tousled waves, the hair inspo was in abundance last night.
So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite hairstyles from the 2022 SAG Awards.
Juno Temple totally slayed the red carpet with this deconstructed fishtail braid that hairstylist Mara Roszak styled using Wella Professionals products. Prior to styling, Roszak used Wella Professionals Fusionplex Shampoo ($23.10) and Conditioner ($23.10) to protect the hair from any further damage during the styling process. Then, she began by applying ROZ Santa Lucia Styling Oil ($45.00) to Temple’s hair from roots to ends, spritzing the hairline with water before blowing it smooth. Next, Roszak blew out her bangs and parted to the side for a Francoise Hardy-inspired bang.
To gather the hair high on top of Temple’s crown, she used the Wella Professionals EIMI Pearl Styler Styling Gel ($20.50) to tame unwanted flyaways and create a smooth pony. To give the braid volume and texture, Roszak applied Wella Professionals EIMI Rugged Texture Paste ($17.64) to her fingertips and braided her hair “imperfectly” leaving a natural effortless finish. She secured the ends with a bit of gold wire and sprayed the hair all over with Wella Professionals EIMI Stay Firm Workable Finishing Hairspray ($19.00).
Jessica Chastain wowed with subtle waves that came courtesy of hairstylist Renato Campora who used all Olivia Garden tools to create this radiant look. According to Campora, Chastain’s red carpet hair was inspired by her Dior suit. “I wanted to create a modern Jerry Hall look,” he explained. “Something that was strong, feminine, and chic.”
To style this look, Campora began by drying Chastain’s hair in sections using the Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Blow Dryer ($109.95) and Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Speed XL Brush ($25.95). Once her hair was dry, he then created a super straight middle part using the Olivia Garden CarbonLite Comb ($12.50). Next, Campora sectioned off the hair by 1-inch all the way around using the Olivia Garden DoubleClip Petite Clips ($8.50). He then began to curl each section of Chastain’s hair using the Olivia Garden Titanium + Ion Curling Iron ($79.99), pinning them with the Olivia Garden DoubleClip Petite Clips ($8.50) to cool and set. Once all of Chastain’s hair was set and taken down, Campora took the front two pieces and tucked them tightly behind her ears. He finished off the look by spraying a generous amount of hairspray to ensure the look and volume would hold.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith stunned with her shaved head on full display last night and she’s honestly never looked better.
Rosario Dawson gave us all major hair envy with this cool twisted topknot that her hairstylist Aviva Perea dreamed up for her. According to Perea, much of the inspiration for Dawson’s hair came from her Oscar de la Renta gown. “Rosario is wearing a gorgeous off the shoulder gown and I wanted to put her hair up to accentuate her gorgeous long neck and glowing skin,” she shared in an Instagram post. “We decided on a sleek, shiny, edgy top knot.”
Cho adorned Jung’s ponytail with a hair ribbon that perfectly matched her Louis Vuitton gown and paid tribute to the traditional daenggi hair ribbon that has been used to decorate braided hair in Korea for centuries.
Cynthia Ervio looked radiant in red as she hit the red carpet with her signature platinum blonde buzzcut.
