The Oscars  are a major part of Hollywood’s celebration, and we can’t help but be inspired by all of the awe-inspiring looks.
Our top picks are no doubt the ever-amazing Lupita and the gorgeous Mila Kunis.

Mila’s hair was a stunning detail in her Zuhair Murad Couture gown. The stylist Chad Wood gave the star Old Hollywood vibes with full curls, sharp parting, and ultra-shiny gloss for added glamour!

Gorgeous, glamorous, and statuesque, it captures both the essence of Lupita and the spirit of the Oscars.
Zendaya was absolutely stunning at the Oscars, and she didn’t disappoint with a chic French twist to highlight her Valentino crop top.

Hair stylist Alexander Armand worked closely with Serena Williams to achieve this blunt, straight bob.

Meghan Thee Stallion looked absolutely stunning as she stepped out on the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards.

Her black hair was in a sleeked back bun with baby hairspray, which gave off just enough texture to make it look interesting but not too much.
9. VANESSA HUDGENS
The inspiration for Hudgens’s look came from a classic Hollywood icon: Audrey Hepburn.
“We went with a twisted updo as an homage to classic Hollywood and Vanessa’s modern style,” Hudgens’ hairstylist Danielle Priano tells Glamour.

“Collaborating with Vanessa is a dream for any artist—she is always so excited to bring our suggested references and ideas to life.”
10. KRISTEN STEWART
Stewart paired her signature platinum blonde hair with a deep side part and messy waves. Her stylist, Adir Abergel, created this look to reflect Stewart’s effortless, relaxed style.
“I wanted to highlight Kristen’s essence by giving her a relaxed style with lots of volume and movement,” Abergel said in a press release. “The inspiration behind the look was classic 90s styles.”
@mysticftvdu damn she’s gorgeous #kristenstewart #kristenstewartedit #oscar2022 #fypage #zyxcba #foryou #foryoupage #fyp #viral ♬ suono originale – hi 🙂
To create the look, Abergel used the Dyson Supersonic and a paddle brush to dry Stewart’s hair, then he used the Dyson Corrale straightener—a new tool that allows you to create soft curls at the ends of your hair—on the longer layers of Stewart’s hair.

I can’t help but marvel at the way Sofia has her red-carpet moments. The side swoop is just so sleek, and I know that it takes some serious hairspray to make those waves lie flat while still being shiny!
