Hoorah! It's Oscars time!
Hoorah! It’s Oscars time! If you’re anything like us, we bet you can’t wait to see what the stars are wearing as they strut their stuff down the red carpet.
And what’s just as important as the gowns on this glamorous night? The hairstyles of course! After all, whether you’re wearing Versace or Dior, you won’t be getting the snaps you deserve if your ‘do is letting you down.
But before we get into the gallery of star-studded styles, we thought we’d get you a few quick tips from the experts – you know, for when you have your night of nights…
“To ensure your hair is in optimum condition for your big night, I recommend weekly hydration treatments and hair masks in the lead up,” advises Brett Albury of Sydney’s SUKI salon. “And always use a heat protection spray when working with thermal styling equipment – it’s imperative to maintaining good hair health.”
“Make sure that your hairstyle works with your dress,” says Caterina Di Biase of Melbourne’s Heading Out Hair & Beauty. “If you’re wearing a very detailed dress I would recommend that hair be worn back…otherwise there’ll just be too much going on.”
“A low side bun teamed with fingerwaves is one of the most requested looks when it comes to 'hair up',” says Albury. “The look beautifully fuses modern and classic and says ‘instant glamour’ – especially when complemented with a red lip.”
