The 2019 Oscars are officially over, and we can spend all month arguing about what should have won Best Picture, or we can head to the red carpet and see who was setting hair trends – we’ll take the latter. Celebrities showed up to the renowned awards showing off diverse hair looks, and often taking the opportunity to debut a whole new look. Allow that mentality to inspire your clients and choose your favourite of the looks below.

1. Charlize Theron

A dramatic new brunette bob for Charlize Theron stole the show on the red carpet, offering a glimpse into a totally wearable cut or colour change. ghd hairdresser Adir Abergel created the alluring look.

“When I saw the beautiful light Japanese indigo fabric on her Dior dress, I immediately knew I wanted to create a dramatic contrast with her hair,” he said. “I envisioned taking her hair to a luxe and rich shade of brown that would enhance those gorgeous blue eyes. I wanted a sexy side swept bob that was luxurious, timeless and chic. My vision for the entire look was for it to feel really luxe: healthy, glowing hair with rich colour styled into amazing sexy bob. Charlize is an incredible creative artist who is fearless and willing to experiment.”
