Oscars 2009 hair trends

The hottest hair trends straight from the Oscars

This season’s hottest Hollywood hair trend – the updo – continues to rule the red carpet, and emerged as a dominant look at last night’s Oscars.

Kate Winslet matched her immaculate, old-school Hollywood style to her locks, with a Forties  tucked under flawless ‘do. Not a hair was out of place, ensuring the Brit actress looked picture-perfect for her close-up.

For Freida Pinto, the updo was given a youthful edge by Aveda stylist Jeffrey Paul, who divided the actress’s hair into three parts and twisted it back into a coiled flower shape. Fellow style star Natalie Portman chose a similar style of architectural twists, slightly mussed round the edges.

Half-up, half-down was the look of choice for Angelina Jolie, who sported a coiffed style, pinned at the back, leaving her remaining locks tumbling down for goddess glamour.

Although few stars left their locks completely loose, those that did, did so with impact. Away from the updos, Jennifer Aniston looked positively radiant, with her highlighted blonde locks loose, with the softest of waves, and a subtle plait framing her face. A breath of fresh air amongst the preened-to-perfection styles, the laidback ‘do added a youthful touch to her high-octane frock.

And though Sarah Jessica Parker may be known for her signature curls, they received a glossy overhaul for the Oscars, looking defined and full, for a more polished look.
