Get down

“I loved how understated the hair at the Oscars was this year,” said session stylist Luke Benson. “I’m a real fan of seeing hair down at red carpet events and this really was the year for that. Side partings and hair tucked behind the ears, cascading down the back as seen on Jennifer Lawrence, or minimal texture like on Margot Robbie, giving that cool girl feel. And bobs with texture and lift like Florence Pugh and Sydney Sweeney. Emma Stone looked great with a subtle wave to hers, but Anya Taylor-Joy was my fave of the night, beautifully simple but executed perfectly but then amped up for the Vanity Fair after party with her bejewelled head piece.”  

Luke adds: “These looks don’t need overloading with product a soft mousse or salt mist from will give just enough hold to maintain the style, finished with a serum and gloss spray to give that beautiful shine for the red carpet and quality to the hair that keeps it looking expensive.”

Chill out

“This years Oscars was all about bobs, buns and embracing a natural finish on long hair,” explains Francesca Harrison, Stylist at Hunter Collective. “Hair wasn’t over curled or looking super glamorous – we had Billie Eilish who usually expresses a lot with bold colours and shaggy hairstyles. This year we saw her with waist length dark hair with a super soft voluminous blow out, more of a grown up look from the singer. Warmer, more relaxed blonde tones were seen too on Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lawrence and Julianne Hough. And as for the bobs, they were mainly kept short, square in shape and featured lots of deep side partings.”So what was your favourite hair look Francesca? “Actually, I’d say Jamie Lee Kurtis. I just think embracing grey hair is a statement in itself and I’m here for it. She has definitely got colour in her hair, but it just shows how beautifully it can be done and how embracing grey rather than fully tinting the hair is the way forward for women.”

Francesca adds: “I also loved the hair up on Maitreyi Ramakrishnan. It was very pretty with the softness from the movement of hair around her face. Totally effortless.”

She’s expensive

“The main hair colour trend I noticed from the night is the ‘expensive Brunette,'” says Carley Bayne, owner of Carley Bayne Hair. “Glossy, rich, multi-dimensional brunettes, which compliments America Ferrera Bob perfectly, as well as giving Billie Eilish a more mature look.”

She add: “It was all about the golds when it came to the blondes this year. Golden and bright blondes all round,from a softer, more lived-in look on Margot Robbie, to Anya Taylor-Joy’s bright all-over colour.
