2013 Oscar Hair Styles


The Oscars are usually the benchmark for each years fashions. This years Academy Awards once again was a chance for stars and celebrities to show off their red carpet style. The dresses, shoes, jewellery and even the hairstyles spotted at this years Oscars may forecast the fashion trends.


Instead of one specific hairstyle ruling the red carpet, the hair at the Oscars came in verity of styles – with French Twists, Chignons along with Cascading Waves and classic short styles were all on display. Most noticeable was the full, luxurious head of hair tossed over and cascading down one shoulder reminding us of Veronica Lake or Kim Basinger.

Leading the revival of the modern cascading waves was Jessica Chastain, who wore her hair to one side and tucked behind the ear. It was just effortless glamor and her beautiful red hair stood out from a sea of blondes and brunettes. All unmistakably old Hollywood vibe’s embraced by the likes of Zoe Saldana, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Hudson and Reese Witherspoon.


Chignons and French Twists, braided or with loose face framing strands usually rule the roost on the red carpet allowing stars to display their dress and jewellery without distractions.


Classic short hairstyles have been in vogue lately and were a standout on the red carpet. Many famous celebrities like Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron are seen at the Oscar’s sporting short styles reminding us of Audry Hepburn’s classic pixie cut. Among the short hair stars was the ever stylish Jane Fonda along with Halle Berry with her popular short spiky look.


Forget having a Glam Gal on your arm. The best accessory for men at the Oscars this year appeared to be “facial hair”. Stars like George Clooney, Ben Affleck, and Bradley Cooper all strutted down the red carpet rocking some serious whiskers. And they weren't alone. Best Actor nominee Hugh Jackman, Jason Clarke from Zero Dark Thirty, and last year’s Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin all seemed to have gotten the memo to follow suit on this year’s beard trend.
