Hollywood’s biggest awards event, the Oscars (aka Academy Awards) took place earlier this month and while the acting categories yielded no major surprises in terms of the winners, the hairstyles certainly turned heads.

In a perfect example of hair matching an outfit, best actress nominee Cynthia Erivo’s ultra short, silver crop that contrasted wonderfully with her dark skin, was superbly aligned in hue to her white Atelier Versace gown, which glinted with crystals and silver mesh cutouts.

Arguably the prettiest hair look of the night was seen on Lucy Boynton, who had pearl hair pins placed down the side parting of her tousled, chin length blonde bob.

Also rocking the hair accessories trend was Salma Hayek, who had a single, large glittering clip placed below a large mahogany bun, which sat upon slicked back black hair.

Regina King slayed with a pixie cut that had an extreme side parting flowing into a long fringe swept to the side of the face. Sandra Oh’s curly braided updo oozed elegance.

Maya Rudolph really put the ‘blunt’ into her sharp bob, while Florence Push joined the recent ‘unusual top knot trend’ – her hair was intricately knotted upwards, with dark roots lurking beneath the blonde.

Newest darling of the red carpet, Billy Porter, sported clipped sides and a very defined side parting, paired with gelled down top.

Chrissy Metz was the epitome of Hollywood old school glamour with her long, soft waves and a vintage inspired side sweep, while the normally brunette Olivia Coleman dazzled with a flattering blonde crop.

Ten-year-old Julia Butters gave her much older red carpet counterparts a lesson in ‘tressalicious’’ glam, with a big bun on the top of her dead, complemented by very long tendrils framing her face.
