Oscars Hairstyles 2013

The Oscars is undoubtedly one of our most favourite nights of the year. After scouring the red carpet for the ultimate hair-do we have come up with some of our favourite Oscar winning hairstyles to give you all a little inspiration on how to wear your hair on a special night out!



Short Textured Crops at the Oscars

Short textured looks have been a huge success already this year and I’m sure that having Anne Hathaway as hair inspiration is enough for any girl to discard her locks for this short pixie crop. Halle Berry and Charlize Theron show us just how versatile the short hair trend can be weather you wear it lifted or simply to the side, style with Design Pulse Beach Clay by MATRIX and you will enhance and define the texture of your short hairstyle.

Scraped back buns & Quiffed hair

Jennifer Lawrence opted for the swept back bun with a slightly softer twist on a timeless look. After wearing her hair down at the Golden Globe awards it’s nice to see Amanda Seyfried wearing her hair up with this tousled quiff showing the versatility of long hair. Niomi Watts gives the quiff a classic feel with this soft quaffed look, its both chick and on trend and works perfectly adding just enough height to the hair. Secure this look using Design Pulse Hair Lock hairspray by MATRIX to give the hair that elegant finish.

Mid length hairstyles at the Oscars

Stacy Keibler’s hair is disguised by loosing the length to this cleaver up-do which makes it look like a vintage tonged bob. Adele’s half up-do hairstyle was inspired by a voluminous sixties’ beehive and Kelly Osbournes trademark violet hue looks fantastic cheekily swept to the side finished with a high gloss spray to create shine. To create body and volume to your hair use Design Pulse Go Big Mousse by MATRIX and for that high gloss finish use Design Pulse Surround Shine by MATRIX.

Voluminous waves and Vintage Curls

Our preferred hair look came in the form of some killer voluminous waves. The gorgeous redhead Jessica Chastain looked glamorous with a deep side part to showcase soft, romantic curls cascading down her nape. . Kirsten Stewart was high on texture and then styled out with loose curls but most stylishly so on Reese Witherspoon with these beautiful vintage inspired waves- it’s a look that works really well for the red carpet. To create this style you will need to dry the hair with Design Pulse Go Big Mousse, then tong or wand the hair then apply Design Pulse Mega Dust to create volume and lift then to hold the style in place, a decent amount of hairspray is required so secure with Design Pulse Hair Lock hairspray by MATRIX
