Stars Show Off Hottest Hair Trends on the Red Carpet
Having trouble deciding on how to cut and style your hair? Get some inspiration from the hottest Oscars hair trends. Celebrities walked the red carpet, sporting a wide range of styles — from loose, laid back curls to short and trendy pixie cuts.
Loose, Side-Swept Curls
One of the most popular hair dos at the Oscars was easily loose, flowing curls. Many stars also swept the curls off to one side for a slightly more distinctive look. Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Jessica Biel, Julie Delpy, and Miranda Kerr were just a few celebrities who opted for this glamorous yet relaxed look.
The best haircuts for sporting this particular look are long locks — or sometimes medium-length hair. Maintain long styles with relatively frequent trims. “Every eight to 12 weeks, ask your stylist to take off the minimum necessary to eliminate split end,” Oprah.com suggests. “Getting rid of split ends reduces hair breakage, and breakage is what makes hair look thinner at the ends (and shorter),” hairstylist Matt Fugate tells O Magazine. Use hair products, such as Aveda curl-enhancing and styling products, to keep styles looking as fresh and sophisticated as the day you left the hair salon.
Short Pixie Cuts Still In
Daringly short styles, such as the ever-popular pixie cut, also made waves at the recent Oscars ceremony. Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, and Anne Hathaway are three stars to recently rock short haircuts. “Nothing enhances a beautiful bone structure more than a cute short haircut. It’s feminine, alluring, classy and downright stunning,” celebrity hairstylists say. Another obvious plus side is that the short haircuts are low-maintenance, and relatively easy to style.
