Now that the 2014 Golden Globes have been and gone, we can really embrace this year's Awards Season, taking inspiration from the red carpet and finding some super glamorous looks of our own to try! We've put together a little gallery of some hairstyles we would love to see at the countless award ceremonies in the coming weeks.

And hey, 2014 is the year of big hair (and the horse, FYI) so things could definitely get a little interesting!

Shiny, happy people... with great hair

Awards Season is the best. It really is. It's such a swanky, star-studded follow-up to the holidays, and it's the perfect excuse to get creative with some super fancy hairstyles just because! Whether you're into ultra sleek, polished looks or something with a little more texture, there is guaranteed to be a red carpet-ready hairstyle out there for you.

For anyone who prefers to keep things really chill, superstars like Blake Lively have been working loose, wavy hairstyles, simple ponies and sleek down 'dos on the red carpet for years.

Some of our favorites

With big curls and styles with a lot of volume being right on trend at the moment, it's a good idea to keep the structure of your chosen Awards Season inspired hair as simple as possible.

We really love the simplicity of braids and ponies and anything with sleek, defined curls is perfect.

Really, it's all about creating a style that exudes as much glamor as it does personality, without seeming over the top. This may seem like a hard balance to strike but with it can totally be done, all you have to do is indulge in a little trial and error until you find a style that works for you.

If you're serious about trying a red carpet style, just remember to keep your friends close and your hairspray closer this Awards Season!
