Red Carpet Hair at the Oscars 2014

It was a night of tears and triumphs for Hollywood’s finest as they gathered for the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony.

Hollywood’s leading ladies graced the red carpet with a variety of stunning Oscar-worthy looks including beautiful gowns and bold new hair styles.

Here at Gore Salon in Irmo we’ve picked out some of our favorite hairstyles to hit the Oscars red carpet in 2014…


Iconic 1940s Hairstyles


One of the most popular looks on the red carpet was the vintage hairstyle with fully fledged stars and hopeful starlets wearing their hair in controlled waves.  Cate Blanchett oozed Hollywood glamour with her blonde hair in waves tucked behind one ear while Sandra Bullock wore her tumbling curls to one side and with an on-trend low side parting.

Short & Chic Red Carpet Hair 


The ever stylish Charlize Theron somehow managed to look both sexy and classy with her short slick hairstyle parted on the side.  Anne Hathaway is great at working her short hair and added volume to her crop which made it look super stylish, and Evan Rachel Wood channeled a 1940s feel with her short wavy vintage hairdo.

Upstyles with Glamour


A glamorous event such as the Oscars demands a really glamorous hairstyle and the updo always rises to the occasion!   Penelope Cruz looked almost regal with her brunette waves piled into a high ballet bun, while Lady Gaga’s structured low-loop bun suited her strong facial features.  Other celebrities such as Olivia Wilde and Julia Roberts opted for a more casual upstyle, with gentle waves framing their faces.

Hairstyles for Hollywood Hunks


Top marks for style go to Jared Leto who wore a fabulous white tuxedo which displayed his long ombre effect hair to perfection.  Brit actor Benedict Cumberbatch looked effortlessly stylish with his slicked back hair, while Bradley Cooper rocked a choppy short hairstyle with a carefully designed beard.

And finally… we couldn’t leave without posting this great star-studded selfie taken by Oscars host Ellen deGeneres.
