Do you think that updo’s are classier than wearing your hair down?

At this year’s Oscars many starlets dared to wear their locks down, and for many of them that scored them best hair recognition. Sandra Bullock wore her hair down in a deepside part, drifting away completely from the usual pulled back updo.

Others, like Tina Fey, Jennifer Lopez, and Anna Kendrick decided to go with a nontraditional updo. Tina Fey had a half-up style that was wavy and truly beautiful. Jennifer Lopez dared to sport a messy bun style with some bright blonde streaks. Anna Kendrick wore her hair up, but had loose waves coming down from the front.

Some stars used their hair to compliment their bold makeup choices, and if you ask me, hair and makeup have to come in perfect harmony. Cameron Diaz’s blonde hair was parted into soft-swept waves that complimented her bright red-orange lipstick. Queen Latifah chose a sleek updo that made everyone’s eyes focus directly on her smoky eyes and flawless skin.

I personally love the waves that Cameron Diaz wore down but all of these women looked absolutely gorgeous in their unique hairstyle choice and in many cases the hair pulled the complete look together.


Who sported your favorite hair look on the red carpet? Was it a traditional do or a nontraditional one? I’m excited to hear what you think!
