The Oscars are right around the corner, full of glitz, glamour, and overly long speeches anyone barely pays attention to unless they contain something shocking. By now you’ve no doubt picked out your favorite movies and actors to win the night. To celebrate the event, we’ve put together our own version of the Oscars – the Hair Oscars! Below you’ll find some of the stars we picked to take the top prize for their locks. Who would you choose?
Our Winner: Anne Hathaway
Ever since she chopped all her hair off for Les Miserables, Anne’s kept it short and sassy instead of growing it back quickly. Turns out that was ideal, as we think she looks better than ever! The pixie is a tough one to pull off for any gal, especially a superstar, but Miss Hathaway makes it look like she was always meant to have this hairdo. Not since a young Mia Farrow have we seen such a perfect match-up.
Runner-Ups: Lena Dunham & Miley Cyrus
Our Winner: Jessica Chastain
Jessica may or may not take home an award Oscar night, but she’s already won the best curly locks award in our book! It’s easy to see why everyone is enamored with her with just a glance at those flaming red strands, which seem to be amazing even with desert sand all in them.
Runner-Ups: Emma Stone & Taylor Swift
Both of these ladies are “hairstyle chameleons” but both pull off the curls with the greatest of ease. Who would you pick as the winner?
Our Winner: Keira Knightley
The classic bob hairstyle takes a certain shape of face to pull off, and well, Keira Knightley has that shape! She always looks like she’s been posed perfectly wherever she goes, especially when her beautiful brown hair accentuates her brown eyes and perfect cheekbones!
Runner-Ups: Helen Mirren & Katie Holmes
We don’t want to leave the poor men out! While the ladies of the Oscars typically get all the love, there’s something to be said about a man in a tux. Especially if they have magnificent facial hair! Our vote has to go to Robert Downey Jr. He looks like he spends as much time on his “balbo” as any lady on the red carpet spends on their hair. And, come on, it’s RDJ!
Runner-Ups: Ben Affleck & George Clooney
Our Winner: Lucy Liu
We didn’t think we were going to like Elementary, but we can’t help turn in every week because of Lucy’s fabulousness! Her hair in particular looks fierce every single episode and she looks more adorable than ever. It helps the show turned out to be pretty good, too.
Runner-Ups: Beyonce & Nicole Kidman
