By the time the Oscar Awards came, we were drooling over the beauty of a number of huge awards. Everyone had their own, outstanding trends, either completely new and fresh or returning looks that we still love. But we were definitely surprised when the trend we thought would cross the biggest night of music for the typically reserved Oscars. Unique hair accessories dominated the red carpet, and they're not your basic headbands and barrettes either. I guess it's the biggest award of the season for a reason.
While the Grammy Awards typically produce crazy fashion and eclectic beauty, the trends this year have been a bit more wearable. Musicians and actors killed the red carpet with ultra-straight hair and insta-worthy nails, but also bold facial applications. The Golden Globes were a bit more subdued, with bouncy blowouts, sky-high buns and artful make-up. The Oscar trends are somewhere in between – glamorous dresses but some bold hair accessories. If you thought the trend was going to go away, well, think again. Check out some of our favorites below.
