Is it us or does this awards season seem like it’s rolling out fast and furious? We were treated to the double whammy of the 2024 Golden Globes and Emmy Awards, serving up red carpet inspo aplenty, and now it’s time for the 2024 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, AKA the SAGs. This event is special because the stars themselves vote for their peers in both film and TV categories, and they were ready to celebrate each other — while turning out some major red carpet looks, obviously. When the guest list includes Jennifer Aniston, Lily Gladstone, Selena Gomez, and Margot Robbie, among many others, you tune in and take notes!

Trend-wise, we saw lots of bobs, including a flippy style on The Color Purple star Taraji P. Henson and a soft wave on Penélope Cruz. If you’re looking for spring makeup inspo, think pink; rosy shades were all over the red carpet, especially on the eyes and lips.

Below, check out the best celebrity hair, makeup, and nail looks from the SAG Awards.

Da’Vine Joy Randolph, who won a trophy for her role in The Holdovers, absolutely glowed in a softly curled blonde bob with a deep side part. A wash of light gold eye shadow and rosy gloss added to her superstar shine.

America Ferrera

Barbie star America Ferrera wore her hair slicked back in a timeless low chignon, perfect for her equally timeless strapless black Dior dress. Stylist Aviva Jansen Perea channeled a “chic but modern French woman” for the look, using Kristin Ess products to bring the vision to life. Perea prepped Ferrera’s wet hair with Instant Lift Thickening Spray, then dried it. Once the hair was dry, Perea used a flat iron on the super short hair at the back of Ferrera’s neck, then smoothed with the brand’s Titanium Curling Iron 1 1/4”. Working in small sections, Perea used a clean mascara wand and a “big scoop” of the Depth Defining Soft Matte Pomade to coat the star’s hair, sweeping it into an elastic and forming the hair into a simple bun.

Emma Stone

If you look closely, you’ll see that not only is Emma Stone wearing a raspberry lip, she’s wearing a similar delicate pink shade on her lids too! (Her exact lip: Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Icon Lipstick in Rose to Fame.) Hairstylist Mara Rozak was inspired by the custom beaded Louis Vuitton gown, creating a “very fresh, youthful, and modern twist” for the star.

First, Rozak prepped Stone’s hair a combo of with RŌZ Milk Hair Serum and Nexxus Epic Shine Anti-Humidity Spray, then blew it dry and added Velcro rollers for a little volume. Rozak teased the hair at the crow, then pulled it back into a tight, low ponytail and wrapped it into a bun. Rozak locked the style in for the night with Nexxus XXL Volume Medium Hold Hairspray and another spritz of Nexxus Epic Shine Anti-Humidity Spray.

The The Killers of the Flower Moon star wore her hair pulled halfway up in a braid, with the rest worn straight and down her back. Stylist Marc Mena was inspired by the fringe on Gladstone’s Armani Privé gown. After blowing out the actor’s hair, he applied Great Lengths Tape In Extensions from the nape of the neck up for length and volume, then cut them with a shears for a wispy effect. are applied starting at the back of the head from the nape of the neck up, building length and volume. The extensions are then cut with a textured sheer for a wispy effect to mirror the look of the fringe on the gown. Mena braided the front portion as a tribute to Indigenous people and their hairstyles.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway’s long brunette hair was full, fluffy, and so luscious, it basically stole the show from her diamond snake necklace and bright blue gown. Hairstylist Adir Abergel prepped the ‘90s supermodel-inspired style with Virtue Labs Damage Reverse Serum and Volumizing Mousse, then rough dried with Shark FlexStyle. Using the Shark FlexStyle Auto-Wrap Curlers, he curled the hair into a classic barrel curl and set the hair on pins. Once it had cooled, he brushed it out with a classic Mason Pearson and applied Virtue’s Healing Oil for shine, plus Create Texturizing Spray for extra volume at the crown.

Selena Gomez

Bombshell alert! Selena Gomez’s loose, voluminous brunette hair and latte lip were a beautiful contrast against her shimmering white sequined gown. Hairstylist Marissa Marino said the inspiration behind the look was “’90s Cindy Crawford,” and used a combo of Fekkai products and Kristin Ess styling tools to bring it to life. First, she spritzed in Fekkai Prep and Prime Mist, then layered the Root Lift and Glossing Cream before blowing dry. Once dry, she curled two-inch sections with the Kristin Ess Soft Bend Titanium 2″ Curling Iron, then combed through the curls with a wide tooth comb. To finish, Marino sprayed Fekkai Volume Lock Hairspray and Full Blown Volume Dry Texturizer Spray for fullness and hold.

Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain was feelin’ peachy from head to toe with an orangey eye, lip, and cheek, which reflected the bright ginger color of her hair. Makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used Dior Beauty’s Diorshow 5 Couleur Couture Eyeshadow Palette in Nude Dress on the star’s lids.

Leighton Meester

Blair Waldorf in the house! Leighton Meester wore the softest, prettiest cappuccino and pink tones to complement her espresso brown satin gown and wore her hair in an equally soft, loosely twisted updo by stylist Clariss Rubenstein. Rubenstein started with Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse and Nexxus Unbreakable Root Lift Thickening Spray on damp hair, then blew her hair dry with a round brush and finished with a curling iron. She then tousled Meester’s hair with “a generous amount” of Nexxus Refresh Volume Dry Shampoo and pulled it into a French twist, finishing with Nexxus Repair & Nourish Ultralight Hair Oil and Nexxus Comb Thru Finishing Mist.

Barbie star Ariana Greenblatt isn’t out of high school yet, but she’s already graduated to red carpet pro over the past few months. Case in point: her flowing hair, bold brows, and flushed cheeks, worn with a custom deep red velvet Vera Wang gown.

Joey King

Joey King threw it back to the late ‘90s with her straight blonde hair, accented with what definitely appears to be an accordion headband, or a clever recreation of said look. (Seriously, pretty sure I wore this same accessory circa 1998.) The pop of shimmery silver shadow in her inner corners also felt very Y2K-inspired. For a similar look, try Dior Beauty’s Diorshow 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palettes in Soft Cashmere and Pied-de-Poule, which makeup artist Allan Avendano used on King.
