Top 14 Oscar 2012 Hairstyles
The Bridesmaids actress continued to turn heads with her sleek bob, while keeping it simple and chic. “We wanted it to be all about shine and a high-gloss finish,” said her stylist Harry Josh, the John Frieda International Creative Consultant. To keep flyaways in place, Josh swiped stray strands with John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer.
Williams’ pixie has become a staple on the red carpet but seems to never get old. Hairstylist Chris McMillan spritzed Michelle’s bangs and part with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to keep them shiny and in place all night long. The Best Actress nominee recently dyed her strands a lighter blonde and paired with a raspberry lip to really make the blonde pop.
The Modern Family actress went with a classic up-do, complete with tousled waves in front and a soft side part.
Instead of a straight bob like Byrne and Faris, Milla went for tousled waves that fell in every direction. It was a great contrast to her strong red lip and old Hollywood one-shoulder dress.
From the front, George Clooney’s better hair looked to be sporting a classic side swept ‘do but from the back the retro look actually had a twist at the nape of the neck, pulling the hair to the left.
The blunt bang was big last night. This Best Actress nominee went a little shorter, mirroring a classic French look. She paired with a sleek chignon at the crown of the head.
Old Hollywood glamour was out last night and the Bridesmaids actress was no exception with side swept voluminous waves. “I was inspired by her beautiful gown and wanted to create a style that was a modern day homage to old Hollywood glamour,” said TRESemme Celebrity Stylist John D. who created the look.
Stylist Tip: He used a smaller barrel curling-iron to create a strong curl pattern. To loosen the curl after, he gently pulled on the section with fingertips.
Celebrity stylist Mark Townsend described Wiig’s waves as “having an edge and sexy texture.”
To break up the curls and create shine, he raked Dove Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum through Wiig’s curls. “I’m beyond obsessed with this product,” Townsend said. “It gives you the nourishment of a cream and the shine of a serum in one bottle!”
Faris arrived to the Oscars with a blunt bob that fell just above the chin. Unlike Byrne, she went with a simple center part.
The actress went for a Grace Kelly ‘do with old Hollywood waves and curls that rolled under in the back to create that faux bob look. Celebrity hairstylist Ande LeCompte rubbed a small amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse on Penelope’s roots to give her style great lift.
Sexy bedhead hair is not as easy as Cameron would have you believe. Hair stylist Lona Vigi created the presenter’s carefree look and we have the details on how! To start, she blow-dried the hair with the Sultra Sophisticate Power Dryer to infuse volume and shine and the Sultra Seductress Curl, Wave & Straight Iron to straighten Cameron’s hair. To create that bedhead look, Vigi used the Seductress to flip up random pieces of hair, adding texture and movement.
All eyes were on the bombshell actress, proving that a blowout is Oscar worthy. Her stylist used minimal products to allow movement, creating that beachy feel. And her new golden highlights were an added touch.
Big buns were a red carpet trend but Wilde’s was less intense, complimenting instead of distracting. Hairstylist Davy Newkirk, who created Oliva’s look, whipped up tons of texture by applying Wella Professioanls Pearl Styler before blow drying and styling.
Holmes showed off her freshly cut bangs on the red carpet, courtesy of hairstyle Andy LeCompte. She paired with a 70s style long pony.
