Great movies, even greater performances, carefully put together ensembles and impeccable makeup and hair – need we ask more from an Oscar awards show? We are just wiping away a tear from the last acceptance speech we heard and as we do that we cast a look at the best hair looks we saw at the 91st Academy Awards.

Bobs have been around for a while, but we saw sleek bobs that were tucked back to look even more restrained and sophisticated. Emilia Clarke, Irina Shayk and Charlize Theron were seen in short, sleek bobs which were neatly tucked behind their ears.

Bobs were certainly the flavour of the day with multiple celebrities wearing the style in various forms. While we saw a lot of sleek, chic, tucked in bobs, there were ladies like Regina King and Lucy Boynton who wore stylised, wavy shorts bobs. Elegant!

Retro waves

Captain Marvel, Brie Larson and the inimitable Jennifer Lopez chose to wear their medium length hair in waves and style it in a very retro way. The front section of the hair which takes a high wave is simply to die for!

Silver sirens

Not to be outdone by the younger lot, Helen Mirren and Glenn Close chose to wear their silver hair in a short crop. We have to take a moment to mention their gorgeous gowns. Glenn Closes’s 4 million beads embellished dress and Dame Helen Mirren’s living coral tulle gown are simply breath taking.

Khal Drogo’s real life Khaleesi, Lisa Bonet wore her cornrows lose in the front and tied at the back, while newcomer, Amandla Stenberg wore her braids in tight finger waves. Both with stunning effect!

Jennifer Hudson and Ashley Graham wore their hair in sleek centre parted low buns to ultimate effect. Ashley Graham even chose to accessorise her bun with many little velvet bows. Cute yet chic, and utterly Oscar worthy!
