Sometimes It's The Hair And Makeup That Make The Golden Globes Worth Watching

Red carpet beauty can be pretty predictable. Leading ladies have been sporting retro waves, smokey eyes and red lips since the 1940s. However, the refreshingly modern hair and makeup from the 2013 Golden Globes are a sign of changing times. (Jessica Alba's tangerine lipstick was daring.)

As our excitement mounts for the 71st Annual Golden Globes Awards this Sunday, we've put together a photo retrospective of the 55 most unforgettable Golden Globes hair and makeup looks over the years. Because let's face it, this is what makes watching the awards show worth it. Here's to more envelope-pushing beauty!
