We roundup the hair trends dominating awards season ahead of the Academy Awards

With the Academy Awards just couple of weeks away, we predict how the stars will style their hair on the red carpet.

Yes, it’s officially awards season and February brings the Baftas, Grammys and the most anticipated film awards of the year - the Oscars.

We’ve already done a round-up of the gowns that are most likely to be worn on the night, based on the Paris haute couture shows, but it’s now time to think about the hairstyles that will influence trends this year.

Based on last month’s ceremonies, which included the Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Critic’s Choice Awards, four styles dominated the red carpet; sleek waves, vintage inspired curls, bohemian braids and sleek pony tails.


Emma Stone at the SAG awards and Amy Adams at the Critic’s Choice Awards both opted for sleek pony tails. For Jennifer Aniston and Emily Blunt at the Critic’s Choice Awards the look was sleek, natural-looking waves, while Amal Clooney and Allison Williams at the Golden Globes chose a more vintage curl.

A more bohemian approach was taken by Keira Knightley and Joanne Froggatt at Golden Globes who both opted for the messy braids.

Good news is that these trends are all possible to recreate at home, without the help of an A-list hairdresser provided you have the right tools.
