Best Tresses at the Oscars

LONDON, Feb 27, 2012/ FW/ — Angelina Jolie’s legs might have gotten the most tweets during the Oscars, but her medium length French curl hairdo was her true crowning glory.

Wearing a stunning black custom-made strapless Atelier Versace velvet gown, intricately gathered into folds at the top, with a full folded skirt with a thigh high slit detail on the right, Angelina Jolie wore her hair down to finish off the look.

The Academy Award winning actress and producer/director of “Land of Blood and Honey” was on the spearhead of the trend for medium length hair.

Academy Award winning actress Natalie Portman also wore her medium length hair down styled as a modern take on a glamorous, beautiful and classic 1950s look.

Another major trend on Oscar night is bangs! Yes, Virginia… bangs are back! “Bridesmaids” star Rose Byrne and “Girl with a Dragon Tattoo” sensation Rooney Mara who was wearing Givenchy, looked chic in their perfectly cut bangs.

And the classic updos are once again present. A perennial favorite style among celebrities, Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad, Bingbing Li and Meryl Streep led the pack in wearing their hair up.

Now, if you’re wondering if you need a stylist to get these looks, the good news is that you can do most of the styles yourself with ghd hair straightener.
