And the Oscar goes to..

Some of our favorite Oscars Hair, Makeup and Moments!

We love a bold punchy lip and this year we saw a departure from the classic red lip. The unexpected hues of raspberry, cranberry and, our personal favorite, tangerine popped on the red carpet. LOVE Olivia Munns lips!

The Oscars is know for its beautiful, simple and classic hair. Our belles of the ball challenged this classic yet possibly over done look. We loved the departure from the sweet ballerina bun and chignon, into the more expressive, slicked-back, bold series of twists and knots.

Our girl crush of the moment Alicia Vikander worked a black-tie ‘hun’, a.k.a. half-up bun.

Always giving us bold and a little bit different, we love Rooney Mara’s three sleek knots, a modern take on the classic bun.


Not too dissimilar from her Star Wars character Daisy Ridley went for a bun with a knotted twist.

It wouldn’t be the Oscars without Hollywood Waves, and this year the stars made those classic soft curls look anything but out of date. Even though we love a good bouncy blow dry we couldn’t go past Saoirse Ronan’s effortless beach-swept hair.


How to: ‘hun’ OR ‘half bun’ this look seen on Oscar winner Alicia Vikander translates from red carpet to the workplace or coffee date wonderfully and is easy to do for all hair lengths and types.

1. Part hair into a loose centre parting before taking the top third section and pulling up into a ponytail.

2. Wrap the ponytail round itself so it forms a bun and pin in place.

3. Leave the lengths of the rest of the hair down and lightly GHD curl in random sections to create soft waves that aren’t too uniform.

4. Finish with some dry texturising spray throughout the lengths.


Kundalini Hair, Canberra is open Tuesday-Saturday for up styles and formal hair.
