The Oscars never fail to up the ante when it comes to glamour, and at Pauls Hair World HQ we can’t wait to see how our favourite Hollywood starlets have styled their gorgeous locks. The red carpet is the perfect setting for leading ladies to showcase elegant and stylish hairstyles. From updo’s to vintage inspired curls, at Pauls Hair World we thought we would share a few award winning Oscars hair ideas of our own, just in case any nominees are stuck for ideas this coming Sunday! The Updo The classic updo is a familiar favourite at any red carpet event, allowing the hair to look effortlessly chic while keeping all of the attention on the main star of the show (the dress, of course!). From bold beehive buns to understated yet timeless ballerina buns, there are so many ways to work a classic updo. At Pauls Hair World we love the Beauty Works Celebrity Style Bun Hair Piece. This no-fuss Beauty Works hair piece simply clips over your hair to reveal a gorgeous statement hairstyle. For instant glamour, sweep a side fringe across your face and fix the bun into a simple low style. Glossy Locks If there is one requirement in Hollywood, it is that your hair must be shiny and styled at all times! Beauty experts everywhere have raved about Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway’s chic little crop. Not only does it perfectly define her beautiful features but it looks healthy and full of shine. If you aren’t brave enough to face the chop then make sure you work glossy locks instead. Celebrity favourite product Moroccan Oil, available from Pauls Hair World, will transform any dry and drab locks into suddenly shiny and fab hair. Hollywood Glamour Waves A token hairstyle at any awards ceremony, waved hair perfectly pays tribute to the screen starlets of the past and is a go-to hairstyle for actresses such as Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfried. Styling your hair into vintage inspired waves can be done with either hair extensions or your natural hair. To achieve the desired look use a weaver such as the Babyliss Porcelain Triple Barrel Waver, alternatively use a trusty set of GHDs by pulling the hair through in a waving motion. Once you have waved the hair, make sure you spray plenty of hairspray and hold the waves into place using hair grips. Whether you are heading to an Oscars themed party this February or simply feel like upping the glamour, at Pauls Hair World we have got all the hair extensions, hair products and styling tools you’ll need for gorgeous award winning hair every time.
