And the Oscar for Best Hair goes to…
The 2019 Oscar’s red carpet style was on point, but we can’t talk about the biggest night in Hollywood without mentioning the glam hair that completes the look. And at the 91st Academy Awards, there was a lot of great ‘dos.
Hair stylist Janet Jackson shares three of her favourite trends from the red carpet below and demos how to do them in the video clip above.
Bangs and buns
We saw this look played out on stars like Linda Cardellini and Laura Harrier, taking what can be a boring bun and turning it up a notch with textured bangs. Whether you prefer a sleeker ‘do or something a bit messier, this style can be tousled any way you like.
Don’t want to commit to bangs? No problem, according to Janet. You can have fun with your hair without the commitment with faux bangs.
Exaggerated pony and accessories
Angela Bassett and Kacey Musgraves totally rocked this sleek and sexy style on the red carpet, and you can achieve the look, too! The best way to rock this style is to keep it sleek in the front and bring the party in the back. If you don’t have Rapunzel-length hair, don’t fret. Just add some clip-in extensions to add extra length and texture.
When it comes to accessories, the red carpet was full of bows, baubles, barrettes and headbands. Any of these can take your locks to the next level.
This classic ‘do is an obvious choice for an event like the Oscars and was seen on Jennifer Lopez and Bohemian Rhapsody‘s Lucy Boynton. It’s a simple and classic go-to that anyone can pull off with ease.
The key to nailing this look is all in the way you brush out the curls, but be sure to let the curls cool before you go at them with your brush.
