The Academy Awards might be the biggest event in the film calendar, but it is also a momentous occasion for the hair and beauty world too. The world’s cameras take thousands of snaps of how the celebs are styled, as this will dictate fashion trends for the rest of the year.
When it comes to Oscars 2022, here’s who we think should’ve got the award for best hairdo.
Lupita Nyong’o has made a name for herself not just for her movies, but for her impeccable sense of style. The Black Panther actress didn’t let fans down when she showed up at the prestigious event with her brilliant elevated asymmetrical beehive.
Her stylist Vernon Francois said the look was “partly inspired by African figures in classical Greek art”.
Someone who stole the show with her ‘60s-inspired blow-dry was Encanto actress Diane Guerrero. The star, who was also in Orange is the New Black, looked sensational with her tresses scraped back into a big backcombed bouffant.
Tennis sensation Serena Williams revealed a new stylish hairdo on the red carpet, sporting a very blunt blonde bob. The sharp hairdo had a centre parting and definitely exuded the drama Williams is known for creating on the court.
American actress and singer Zendaya went for a classic updo to contrast with her modern Valentino two-piece outfit, which revealed much of her midriff.
Stylist Antoinette Hill said they chose the French twist “because we felt it’s very glamorous and Hollywood-esque”, adding: “It also accentuated Zendaya’s beautiful features”.
