How to recreate these Oscars-inspired hairstyles



The celebs brought their fashion A-game to last night’s 87th Academy Awards – especially when it came to the red carpet hair! And since we’re always looking for a little “hair-spiration,” Melissa and Cynthia decided to give these Oscar-inspired hairstyles a shot.
Here are the how-to steps to help you try these looks at home, courtesy of our hairstylist Jordy. Let’s get started.

  1. Make a deep side part and leave a front section of your hair loose.
  2. Pull the rest of your hair into a low-slung, messy bun. Jordy says to place the bun on the side that is opposite from your hair part.
  3. Slowly start to twist the loose section of hair towards the crown of your head.
  4. Use the leftover hair from your twist and wrap it around the bun. Secure with a few bobby pins.
  5. Give it a spritz of hairspray and you’re all set!


Cynthia’s inspiration: Gwyneth Paltrow



  1. Start by blow-drying and then, flat-ironing your hair to get it nice and sleek. You can use a shine serum or shine spray to achieve the glossy look. The key is shine, shine, shine!
  2. Part your hair to the side.
  3. Section off two pieces of your hair — on both sides of the head. Keep them loose.
  4. Next, isolate a loose section of hair at the crown of your head. It should look like the makings of a hair bump.
  5. Pull the two front sections into a tight ponytail. Keep the ponytail under the loose top section of hair.
  6. Let the loose top section hang over your ponytail and voila! Stylist Tip: Smooth out any loose ends with a dab of gel to get a really straight look.
