Hair-Inspo: Oscars Edition

Mar 5, 2018 10:02:00 AM

The biggest night in film called for celebrities to bring their A-games when it came to their red-carpet fashion.


For your hair-inspo, Here are our five favourite hairstyles from this year’s Oscars.



Zendaya showed up to this year's Academy Awards in a sleek topknot. Her hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, simply smoothed and swept Zendaya’s hair up into a high bun, proving that you can, in fact, wear a topknot to a black-tie event. Count on Zendaya to make an everyday hairstyle, the topknot, look ultra-chic.  


Emma Stone's red-carpet look was sleek, sharp, strong and elegant. Her golden strawberry-tinted strands were worn in a sleek deep side part, with one side tucked behind her ear – a perfect way to show off her bold earrings. Her stylist, Roszak, styled her hair to be super sleek, with volume and high shine. To achieve the look, she prepped the hair with a frizz reducing nourishing oil, and then dried Stone's hair section by section using a medium round brush.


Laura Dern channeled Old Hollywood glamour with her soft bouncy waves in a deep side part. This classic beauty look never fails to make an impact on the red carpet (or anywhere else!) To ensure her waves stayed in place the entire evening, her hairstylist, Creighton Bowman, misted each curl with a soft, flexible hairspray.  Job well done, Creighton!


Lupita Nyong’o stunned with an embellished upswept braided style by Vernon Francis. Inspired by hairstyles traditional to Rwandan culture, Francis styled her hair into three thick asymmetrical braids and then wove delicate gold threads into them. To create this look, her hair was first blow-dried with a round brush. Before shaping the style, the ends were smoothed with a flatiron and set with hairspray. The gold thread was the finishing touch!


Get Out star, Betty Gabriel, looked like a modern-day Cinderella with her curls pinned back in a voluminous half-up style. Her look epitomizes the ultimate half up-do: bold waves, dramatic volume on top, and cheekbone-highlighting height. About her style, Betty said, “I wanted to focus on natural textures and mix in traditional, elegant glam. I’m wearing it pulled off my face to feel comfortable, confident, and chic.”
