Oscars 2021: The best hair looks spotted on the red carpet

The Academy Awards are one of the most-watched red carpet events of the year. The who’s who of Hollywood walk the red carpet in their finest, and it is indeed a sight to behold. And this year was no different.

Even though the ceremony itself was small and intimate, the impact was the same. The glamorous leading ladies strutted down the red carpet in bright tulles and metallic golds. We spotted major hair looks, and some celebs even flaunted their long hair length, which they grew out while social distancing. We’ve rounded up the best hair looks from Oscar 2021. Check it out.

We are so glad Laverne Cox went blonde because the new hair perfectly matches her fierce personality. She secured her long locks in a high-bun and left out face-framing tendrils, and we love the fun and flirty vibe of this look.


02. Zendaya

The reigning red carpet queen churned out the best look in 2021 as well! Zendaya paired her neon gown (which glows in the dark, BTW) with wavy extensions that blended beautifully with her natural hair, giving us major Disney princess vibes.


03. Regina King

Debuting a sleek, one-length bob on the red carpet, Regina King channelled a modern Cleopatra with her hair done on the red carpet. We loved how the sleek hairstyle looked with the structured gown. It is such a chic look.


04. Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie is one of those women who can rock literally any hairdo in the world, which is why we are not surprised that she can look this drop-dead gorgeous in thick bangs too. The casual way in which the rest of the hair is textured and secured in a loose ponytail can only be done by the coolest in Hollywood, and that’s Margot.


05. Amanda Seyfried

It wouldn’t be the Academy Awards without at least one person walking down the runway in her best Old Hollywood Glam look! Amanda Seyfried spent hours in the makeup chair getting her blonde tresses styled into glam Hollywood waves. It perfectly complements her tulle dress.


06. Halle Berry

One of the biggest hair moments seen on the Oscars 2021 red carpet came from the wildly adventurous Halle Berry, who showed off a snipped asymmetrical bob with baby bangs. The actress already holds the secret to the fountain of youth, and this new hairdo takes off another 20 years from her look — tell us your secret, Halle!


07. Andra Day

Andra Day is always a treat to spot on the red carpet. Looking resplendent in a golden gown, the actress’ gorgeous curls were secured in a side-swept top bun, with lovely tendrils left loose to mimic bangs. It is such an adorable hair look; we love it!
