With all of the excitement surrounding fashion’s biggest night in Hollywood, our staff here at Hairflix couldn’t wait to dive into our favorite part—glamorous Oscar hair! While most celebs tend to stay within the ‘classic’ and ‘elegant’ realm, some of this year’s Hollywood elite took a different approach with their red carpet styles. So who made us swoon over their sophisticated strands and whose Hollywood hair fell short of the style mark? Join us as we comb through our favorite—and least favorite looks of the 2012 Oscars!
Our top look of the evening comes from ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ star Rooney Mara. Her elegant, yet edgy jet-black bun and heavy fringed bang was a daring red carpet showstopper! This iconic look was a perfect mixture of elegant Hollywood glam and ultra- modern edginess.
The always-sexy Angelina Jolie was the epitome of Hollywood glamour with her big, voluminous waves this year. Her lighter-than-usual golden brown hair had effortless body and bounce, proving that sex appeal comes easy to the 36-year-old style icon.
Honorable mention goes to ‘Bridesmaids’ actress Ellie Kemper with her sleek up-do and thick, blunt bangs. Her gorgeous copper hair color outshined the blondes and brunettes and made her one of our favorites of the evening.
And now for the Oscar hair losers!
Penelope Ann Miller was our choice for worst hair this year. Her unflattering dusty-blonde up-do paired with a juvenile thin headband had us wondering if she made a wrong turn onthe way to the junior prom.
We also weren’t impressed, to say the least, with Jennifer Lopez’s tight, retro up-do. Not only is it a look she’s done many times before, it was just too safe and went virtually unnoticed amidst the other spotlight-stealing looks on the red carpet.
And finally, Anna Faris’ bleached blunt bob was another look that stayed on the straight and narrow this year. The color was draining against her pale skin tone and the look as a whole was well—forgettable.
We can’t say we were blown away with this years Oscar styles—with a few exceptions. But the hits and misses are exactly what keep us coming back for more every year.
