BEST Hairstyles

saorise-FL

1 – SAORISE RONAN

saorise-head

Inspired by Malibu beach waves, this effortless looking hairstyle is a show-stopper. A more relaxed look from
Saorise than other red-carpet looks, this is a flawless hairstyle choice for her age and it is a great contrast to her
sophisticated evening gown.
Grade A+

rooney-mara

2 – ROONEY MARA

rooney--Head-back

An intricate multi-knot sleek updo could have been a disaster. But not for Rooney! This editorial-inspired hairstyle is modern,
out-of-the-box and fashion forward. I absolutely love her vibe from head to toe!

Grade A

jennifer-lawrence

3 – JENNIFER LAWERENCE

Jlaw-headshot
This is stunning! The “long-bob” or “lob” is all the rage in salons around the world and this one will be duplicated (albeit good luck stylists!)countless times this Spring and Summer. The perfect center part and just the right amount of height in the crown makes this lob look polished and rich.
Grade A

cate-blanchett

4 – CATE BLANCHETT
headshot-cate

This is a movie STAR! Wow, Kate nails this red-carpet look. Of course, the dress is the star of this show and her understated side-swept hairstyle is beautiful. The length of the haircut allows her neck to be exposed so her Tiffany & Co. earrings are able to sparkle!
Grade A

sofia-FL

5 – SOFIA VERGARA

sofia-head
So refreshing to see Sofia’s hair pulled back. She has a gorgeous mane of Hollywood bombshell hair, but this ponytail makes her seem especially chic! I love the clean-part and the barrel curls. She looks radiant and happy!
Grade A

WORST Hairstyles

juno-temple

1 – JUNO TEMPLE

juno-temple-2

DREADFUL! This might be a contender for the all-time worst Oscar hairstyle. There is nothing right about this look and her hairstylist should be ashamed of this creation, and fired!
Grade F-

attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

2 – KATE CAPSHAW

Poor Kate! Another hairstylist that should be fired! The bangs are terrible. The highlights and low-lights are too warm in color and her hair texture looks dull and straw-like, FAIL!
Grade F

brie-larson

3 – BRIE LARSEN

brie-larson-head-shot

A very amateur looking high-school prom hair-do that looks like her best friend did. This too-tightly pulled back style and the unattractive diamante barrette is just ugly.
Grade D-

4 – ALICIA VIKANDER

back-of-head-vikander

Although her dress is fabulous, this hairstyle is too messy for such an elegant event as the Oscars. This half-up, half-down attempt is a miss.
Grade D

kate-hudson-fl
5 – KATE HUDSON

kate-hudson-head-shot

A rare bad hairstyle choice for the almost-always flawless Kate. Did she actually have a hairstylist create this look? I hope not!
Grade D+

And there you have it, my annual Oscar re-cap! I will be back at LA-STORY for my “SUMMER TRENDS” in June!

Hope you enjoyed the Oscars and that your movie favorites won!
