While we're still mourning the end of AMC's Mad Men, a handful of the show's starlets gave us one last dose of the '70s-inspired beauty we've come to know and love from their on-screen characters with matching center parts on Sunday night.

"The center part frames the face very well, so of course we have seen it for a long time," says stylist Renato Campora, who coiffed January Jones Sunday night. "It’s a very '70s vibe, and then with the long hair middle part it’s quite cool and young... I think it brings out the eyes and it’s quite sexy, and the hair kind of moves a bit," he added, noting that a sidepart can often feel "too stiff."

Drawing inspiration from Christina Hendricks' floor-length "Art Deco" gown, stylist Gregory Russell also created a '70s-style look that was equal parts polished and soft, with plenty of volume which he achieved by blowing hair out in sections with a large, round brush. "I love that she's a glamour girl but also so gorgeous," says Russell. "She is really awesome about being collaborative with everything so we really have fun looking for references and selecting looks."

Not to be left out, Jessica Pare, in a floor-length pink Monse gown, also went down the same route, opting for pared-back glamour with a sleek, low-slung chignon, complete with a dramatic part down the middle, thanks to hairstylist Marcus Francis.
