Hugh? Alec? Tell Us Which Guys Had Worst/Best Globes Hair

01/16/2007 at 10:59 AM ET

So as to not be unfair, lets take a moment to muse on the men’s looks from last night’s Golden Globes. Though the prevalence of tuxedos makes it difficult to form any blatant fashion statements, there sure was some variation happening above the collar. Take Alec Baldwin and Hugh Grant, for example, two actors famously known for their thick locks. While Best TV Comedy Series Actor winner Alec kept his graying top perfectly coiffed, Grant seemed to be doing battle with a bottle of gel. What do you think? Any other guys whose looks you loved/hated last night?

Hugh and Alec look like they can pass for twins, I’ve always had a crush on Alec though. He is one hot man!

KJ on

Hugh always looks like he just got out of bed. Alec’s hair looks a little stiff but okay. I think Warren looked terrific!! He and Annette as such a beautiful couple.

Christabelle on

Loved, loved, loved Sacha Baron Cohen’s hair. Those loose curls were adorable! I thought he looked really dapper. I was less impressed by Brad Pitt. Sorry! He needs to try something different. Remember when he started the whole messy head look? Now he looks like everyone else. Disappointing!

alec and hugh’s hair are part of their personalities. however–charlie sheen’s hair looked ridiculously hairsprayed to me. it’s just too much when a guy goes overboard on his appearance. it’s good that they put the time in etc., but they’re MEN. it’s not supposed to be obvious!!

Candi on

I thought Patrick Dempsey’s, Brad Pitt (ofcourse), and David Spades hair looked nice. As for Hugh and Alec, I loved theirs too. Their hair fits them to a T! One is very sophisticated and the other is fun and witty. Love it. The guys looked wonderful last night…

annabelle on

I thought George Clooney’s looked a little too slicked down, almost like it was still wet from the shower.

KT fr Cda on

I liked Warren Beatties and Brad Pitts hair.

Becky on

i love Hugh and ALec Baldwin is one of the funniest actors out there. His delivery is perfect. I think their hair suits their personalities.

Chrissy on

I don’t think either one of these men looks incredibly dapper. Hugh looks like he just rolled out of bed and Alec looks like he got in a fight with a can of hairspray.

Kim on

Was it just me or did Charlie Sheen’s tux not fit him at all? It looked huge in the shoulders and his pants were baggy. He must have skipped his final fitting.

I think their hairstyles fit their personalities.

anne on

their hair looks horrible esp Hugh!

Allison on

Good grief—hair may be important but Alec Baldwin remains a jerk no matter how he combs it! As for Hugh Grant, this may not be his best look, but he’s so charming and witty on screen, who really cares! (Obviously, not me!)

Troy on

Hugh is looking haggard. Ick. Alec, that is one handsome man, love him and will always.

JenB on

Hugh has great hair and great style, but this look is a little too messy for my taste. His hair was great in About A Boy and in Two Weeks Notice. I wish he’d kept either of those styles. He’s yummy.

enigma on

I was too busy watching 24, to watch the Awards!

But, I think Chrissy is right about Alec’s fight with a can of hair spray…….hee-hee…….., the can won!

As for Hugh, his hair looks electrified!

Brad’s hair looked nice but, slightly overdone.

Hugh Laurie’s hair looked nice too.

Jasmin on

Well Hugh Grant looks like he just had a quick romp with one of the co-presenters before he came on stage, some one needs to tell him that the Einstein look was never in, not even when Enstien sported it. Alex looks, fine, maybe a little to much gel but still look good. If you would excuse me for straying from the point but would just like to say that Helen Mirren looked beautiful, she put all of the young stars to shame in that gorgeous gown, and for a women of sixty its even more impressive!!!! So from one Essex Girl to another, Helen you look lovely!!!!!!!!!

Kel on

Did anyone notice how Alec looks like he just had an episode with bad hairplugs. EEEKKK. If you watch it again when he accepted his award for ’30 Rock’ He keeps looking down at the award and the light refects off of his scalp. Not cute. Hugh looks like Hugh.

lala on

I don’t think it matters how Hugh Grant does or doesn’t do his hair. He’s so funny and talented, and he always looks great.

Jackie on

i mean they were both pretty bad, but hugh’s do takes me back to his prostitute days…EWW!

Leilani on

Charlie Sheen’s hair was out of control. I don’t even notice men’s hair so much, but I couldn’t stop staring at his mess while he was talking.

bebe on

Sacha looked fabulous, much improved after his stint as Borat. As for the two above, Hugh’s hair looked tousled, which was far preferable to Alec’s stiff coif.

Exotic Goddess on

Hugh has taken the bedhead look to new heights. Hugh has just made bunkbed-head vogue. It would look fabulous if it wasn’t a double-decker. But I watched the show in sweats with hair as flat as paper due to the dry weather, so don’t mind me.

Hugh and Drew were very cute as presenters. They make you smile just looking at them. Hugh always makes me laugh, gotta love him.

Exotic Goddess on

I didn’t notice while watching the awards show but in the photo here it looks like Alec has a little touch of What About Mary happening in the front hairline. He looked perfect on stage. What an adorable smile. I like him better now that he’s happy again. He’s a good actor, one of my favorites.

Hugh and Alec are both cute, very likeable and among my favorite actors.

Robin on

Hugh Grant and Charlie Sheen hair always looks a mess,they just both aren’t goodlooking in my opinion. Alec Baldwin, Patrick Dempsey and George Clooney have great hair. They are HOT!

Kristen on

They bothe had funky hair cuts at the awards. Don’t know
what’s going on there.

Phinchen on

Hugh’s hair is ok, that’s just him! but is it just me or does he look old?! omg, all those lines around his eyes! but hey, he’s still sexy as hell!

Sandy on

Hugh, what were you thinking? I literally laughed out loud! Most of us try to de-bed our hair when we wake up in the morning, not try to recreate the look for a night out! Find a new stylist and hair designer!

Lissa on

Hugh Grant looks like a bird landed on his head, tried to make a nest of it and decided it wasn’t good enough to lay eggs in.

Lauren on

I love Hugh Grant I think he is funny and sexy, but that hair a Big NO!! I have a pet peeve about men and getting haircuts. I think if I can spend hundreds of dollars and numerous hours each month getting my hair done, they can spend $20 or less every two weeks to keep theirs in check.

maria lovoitz on

Alec looks better than Hugh. But I still love Hugh, especially in Notting Hill! They both need to chill out on the hair gel!
