The Best Hair Trends from the Oscars 2022

The Oscars for 2022 are over and days later we’re still a little reeling from the wild ride of the evening that will be talked about for years to come. Despite the controversy, the star studded evening had some of the boldest, most vibrant hairstyles we’ve seen in a while. From power ponytails to braided updos, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites to inspire you for your next occasion, be it a summer getaway or “that special day”.

Zendaya’s Swept Up Updo

Oscar night's arguably most stunning look went to Zendaya whose hair was swept up into a french twist hairstyle. Her hairstylist Antoinette Hill talked to People Magazine about the style, calling it classically glamorous and evocative of old Hollywood and that it accentuates her facial features flawlessly. Zendaya also revealed that for the Red Carpet she did her own makeup, going for a glossy nude lip and silver eyeshadow that matched her floor-length skirt.

Lupita Nyong'o’s Classical African Updo

In a gold sequin gown Nyong'o looked AMAZING with her hair woven up into an elevated beehive that her hairdresser Vernon Francois said was inspired by African figures in classical Greek art. Soft, graceful, and glamorous, the braids matched the movement and energy of hher dress flawlessly with an asymmetric hand-sculpted shape that was completely regal and created the illusion of a longer neck. She dazzled at the Oscars!

Chloe Bailey’s A-Bomb Messy Updo

Chloe SLAYED with this A-bomb style messy updo, teased to voluminous heights. Paired with a metallic smokey eye with delicate baby curls around her hairline. Hairstylist Fesa Mu created the look to complement the custom deep purple split leg gown designed by L.V.D.F. Fesa is known in celebrity circles as a “hair poet”, creating braided hairstyles for Yara Shahidi, Halle Bailey, and Alicia Keys.



Kim Kardashian’s “Wet Hair” Center Part Pony

The "Occasion" Ponytail is still a go-to staple for weddings and runways alike and no one wore it on the Red Carpet better than Kim Kardashian. She dazzled in a form fitting electric blue dress with a massive train, but crowning her look was a mermaid length ponytail, sleeked down with oil for a wet hair look that reached down past her waist. She wasn’t alone in going for the “wet hair” look, as Kourtney Kardashian, the literal queen of wet hair looks. You can easily achieve this look with one of our clip-in ponytail extensions, so easy and elegant!

Naomi Scott went for the wet hair look as well..

And so did Ciara, looking drop dead gorgeous as usual..

Billie Eilish’s 60’s Shaggy Bob

Billie has been known to change up her hairstyle as frequently as her mood, in both color and cut, but for the Red Carpet night she showed up with a jet black 60’s bob with curled, shaggy ends, flicked out at the ends. It was paired with an ultra-ruffled, floor-length, jet-black gown. She not only looked amazing, but when she took home the Oscar she looked absolutely amazing on stage accepting the award. You too can have Billie's style with our clip-in bangs, they're so easy to clip-in and blend with a hairstyle just like hers!

Megan Thee Stallion

Megan had an amazing night, becoming the first female rapper to EVER perform at the Oscars. It was her dress however that made social media viral rounds, a blue form-fitting gown with a cutout and high slit with a long flowing train. Glam cat-eye makeup and a sleek updo bun paired with little swirled baby hairs along her hairline.

Her performance of Disney’s “Encanto” “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” song stole the evening.

Diane Guerrero’s 60’s Hepburn Bouffant

Actress and singer Diane Guerrero who also was on hand to perform the hit song from “Encanto” channeled some old school Hollywood glam with an Audrey Hepburn inspired hairstyle. Her long hair was pulled back with a headband and teased and shaped into a stunning 1960’s bouffant that tumbled down her back with mermaid-like waves.
