Oscar Beauty 2015: How to Recreate the Five Best Red-Carpet Hairstyles

Sure, The Academy Awards is all about the biggest and best films of the year, but who deserves an award for their highly-coveted Oscars 2015 beauty look?

We consulted world-renowned stylist and originator of Couture Custom Hair, Angelo David Pisacreta, who owns the luxury New York Salon, Angelo David Salon.  Pisacreta, a client, rounded up five of his favorite Oscar hairstyles and gave us some tips to achieve the look at home.


1. Jennifer Lopez’s ponytail

Jennifer always knows how to make a statement on the red carpet and did it again this year at the Oscars with a simple pony and fresh makeup.

 Her ponytail looked great because it had volume and length. To recreate this look, start by using a volumizing spray on damp hair. I recommend the Angelo David Vol Spray, $18.50. Next, using a great hair brush, such as the Angelo David Paddle Brush, $65 create your ponytail and secure with a hair tie. To add extra fullness, add your clip on Angelo David Couture Ponytail and secure with bobby pins.


2. Scarlett Johansson’s crop

Let’s face it, Scarlett would looks good in any hairstyle she chooses, but I am really loving her new pixie cut! She is able to wear her bang low, swept to the side, or up for height; both look beautiful on her.

To prepare this look, start by applying the Angelo David Foaming Sea Silk Styler $21.50 on towel dried hair to provide lift and maximum volume before blow drying. I recommend using the Elchim 3900 blowdryer.  Next, begin blow drying using the Angelo David Round Brush $55 for placement before applying the Angelo David Zero Frizz Control ($19.50) to tame flyaway’s and frizzies.  Proceed by using your fingers to sweep the hair into place. Finish this stunning look with a strong hold hairspray, I recommend the Control Addict 28 Strong Hold Anti-Humidity Hair Spray by Redken.


3. Julianne Moore’s side-part

This year’s Best Actress Julianne Moore looked amazing wearing a side-parted chignon. She looked classy and not too overdone for the occasion.

Start by applying the Angelo David Foaming Sea Silk Styler $21.50. Next, with the Angelo David Round Brush $55 blowout for frizz free smooth finish. Apply a light hold hairspray and with the Angelo David Meduim Paddle Brush $55 create your side part and secure your low ponytail. To finish the look, twist your ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins and apply a strong hold hairspray.


4. Anna Kendrick’s updo

Anna Kendrick looked stunning! I loved her classic updo with soft waves.

To achieve the look, start by using the Angelo David VOL Spray $18.50 and the Angelo David Foaming Sea Silk Styler $21.50 to create texture. To amplify further texture, create soft curls using a 1 inch barrel curling iron, and then break the curls with your fingers. Use the Angelo David Large Paddle Brush $65 to pull the hair back into a low chignon and secure with bobby pins. Finish the look with a strong hold hairspray.


5. Naomi Watts’ wavy lob

Naomi is always classic on the red carpet. I loved the cut and the soft lose curls.

To create this look, start with Angelo David Premier Volume Spray $18.50 on damp hair, then begin blow drying hair by sections. Next, with an Angelo David Large Round Brush $55 twist your hair as you release the brush to crest your waves. To hold the waves, use a curling iron to set the hair. To finish the look, use a small comb to place your waves. Finish with a strong hold hairspray, then tweak what’s needed with your fingers tips.
