Oscar Hairstyles the Best and Worst

The Oscar Awards were nothing to write home about when it came to creative Oscar hairstyles. Not much to get excited about. I had a hard time picking a favorite because nothing stood out.

Am I missing something here? If you saw an Oscar hairstyle that was a knockout, please share it with us. I would like to hear what you thought was smashing! Haven’t we all been programmed to look to these shows to see the top fashion styles?

The, what-not-to-do Oscar hairstyle award, was easy . . . it goes to Meryl Streep. Being a nominee for best actress, one of the biggest awards of the evening, you would think would call for a coif of some sort. Her hair looked as if nothing more than a comb had been run through it after getting out of the shower. Nothing, no style, not even the casual looking style applies here, as even the casual look takes a bit of foofing.

The straight hairstyle look showed up again and looked good on Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Gwyneth Paltrow. But again, nothing new, kind of boring for the big Oscar night.

So my best Oscar hairstyle award of goes to . . . .

Jodie Foster . . . for these reasons. It’s always fun to see a new hairstyle on someone and it was a breath of fresh air to see hair other than the long, slightly layered look. This hairstyle flatters her square face shape with the soft, long razored layering, giving a light fullness and height on top. An airiness and texture was created also with the right amount of high lights.
