Six 2016 Oscar Inspired Hair Tutorials

And the Oscar goes to… Plan B Headquarters, for picking out the top six styles we saw on the red carpet this Oscar season!

There were many stunning styles at Hollywood’s most infamous award show, but obviously, some were better than others. We’ve rounded up six looks from the stars and found similar tutorials for you to follow if you want to steal their looks.

Retro Pin Curl Bob


Starting off with Lady Gaga, it looks like she’s come a long way since her wacky meat dress days. The singer dazzled in a white gown and went retro on us with a beautiful pin curled blonde bob.

Messy Faux-Hawk Braid


Moving onto Hollywoods favourite Lip-Sync Battle host, Chrissy Teigen rocked out with a faux-hawk inspired boho braid. This woman dazzles no matter what style she tries out, but we were certainly wowed with the intricate details of her braid.

Achieve a similar look by following this tutorial we’ve found. Our piece of advice? If you want to really go the extra mile, mess up your braid even more-so to get that effortlessly tousled look.

Effortless Beach Waves


Best Actress nominee Saorise Ronan went with a beachy-keen style for the red carpet. Her loose waves are definitely going to be a huge trend you’ll see this spring. The best part? Her curls don’t face all one way… which helps to create extra texture throughout her hair.

This tutorial looks almost like a carbon copy of Saorise’s do, check it out:

Accessorized Half-Up Do


Let’s be honest, as gorgeous as our favourite Hollywood women looked at the Oscars… newcomer Brie Larson blew everyone out of the water! Not only did she win best actress, but we think that she deserves best hairstyle too. She stood out by adorning her half-up do with a beautifully bedazzled hair piece, and to us? That takes the cake.

To replicate her look try following Luxy Hair’s Twisted Half-Up Do and add in your favourite hair accessory at the back:

Sleek Low Pony


Get sleek and chic like Modern Family’s sweetheart, Sofia Vergara. Not only does she have every man in the world drooling over her for her sex appeal, she now has women drooling over her due to this romantic style.

This YouTube tutorial hits the nail on the head if you’re dying to re-create her slicked back low ponytail:

Halo Braid and Braid Bun


Olivia Wilde became the holy grail goddess of braids at the Oscars with her halo braid. Not only did the braid provide nice framing around her face, she stuck with the hairstyling technique and went for a fully braided bun as well. Talk about dedication!

Since this style seems the most intricate of them all, we found two hair tutorials that you can combine in order to obtain the same do. Start by watching them both all the way through, and then decide how you will put them together to get that Olivia Wilde look.
