Awards season has officially drawn to a close with the 2019 Academy Award. This year at the Oscars red carpet, your favourite stars dressed in their award show best for the special evening. We loved so many different looks! There was a lot of classic Hollywood Glamour – think full skirts and long-hemlines with hair done up high. As well as a lot of memorable and current runway looks, including daring metals teamed with glam curls. Here are some of our favourite red-carpet looks and some tips and tricks to achieve the same look for your hair.
LADY GAGA’S PLATINUM BLONDE UP-DO
Lady Gaga looked every bit “Hollywood Movie Star” in an elegant, beautiful and memorable Alexander McQueen black gown inspired by the late Audrey Hepburn. She exuded confidence and grace with her trademark platinum blonde hair styled into loops on the top of her head and twisted back into a tight roll. To create something similar, section off the top part of your hair and curl to create volume like a bouffant, then twirl the curls in small sections and sweep toward the back of the head. Gather the rest of the hair from the sides and secure all pieces at the back in a neat bun and secure with hairspray
BRIE LARSON’S ROOT STRETCH
Captain Marvel actress looked marvellous in a sleeveless, high-neck metallic column gown from Celine by Hedi Slimane. Her deep, side-part and soft waves were also on-point. Her hair had a beachy texture which worked well her her blonde bob an edgy dress. The textured soft look was also not over shiny to complement her sparkling dress. What we loved most about her hair look what the colour. She has opted for a root stretch where her natural darker roots have artificially been stretched down the hair line for a more natural and lived in look. It also works really well with her dark eyebrows and brown eyes. Next time your in salon and thinking about a change to your current blonde look, ask your stylist about a root stretch to liven up a flat blonde tone.
EMMA STONE’S CHIC AUBURN UP-DO
Emma donned a orange-red toned striking gown heavily embroidered with pearls, sequins and beads, and featuring striking exaggerated shoulders, with hair matching the auburn hue of the dress. With such a stunning dress, Emma kept her hair style simple, a side-parted sleeked back up-do gathered in a neat low bun at the back of the head. To copy, part hair to the side and smooth with a comb and secure in a neat ponytail. Create a bun by twisting the pony tail and pinning or using a hair donut to create the perfect circular bun.
J’LOs SMOOTH HOLLYWOOD WAVES
Looking like a legit disco ball, Lopez walked the ramp in a mirror mosaic embroidered Tom Ford gown. The long sleeves and covered neck was matched with a metallic clutch and jewellery too. Her hair complimented the look perfectly, smooth, sleek and refined making sure not to take away from the awe of her amazing gown. To achieve this look, blowdry hair using a smoothing serum beforehand. Then create subtle waves using a flat iron.
AMY ADAMS ‘MORNING AFTER’ WAVES
With morning-after waves and rosy nude lips, Amy Adams was a vision in a silver beaded metallic dress and dripping in diamonds. Her naturally strawberry blonde locks were also a key accessory, swept to one side and loosely curled and fashioned into glam hollywood waves. To create the same look section hair from crown to ear and take diagonal sections of hair and place curling wand below hair facing towards face. On opposite side, create symmetry by facing barrel towards face. Finish with a light brush through waves to loosen them and style to one side.
