The 87th Academy Awards are in the books and while everyone else is talking about who took out Best Picture, we’re more focused on which celebs managed to dazzle us with an original hairstyle or shocking cut.

With so many stars showing up on the red carpet, it’s sometimes hard to wade your way through the bevy of blow waves and chignons to find some truly inspiring styles. Luckily we have you covered with this list of edgy, intricate or purely surprising styles.

Which looks do you love?

1. Emma Stone

Known to never commit to her hair colour of choice, Emma Stone’s rich auburn locks are a far departure from the blonde hue she sported in the movie she was actually nominated for, Birdman. The asymmetrical, wavy bob look is an inventive take on red carpet glamour and is certainly eye catching, paired with a jewel-encrusted lime gown and big lips.

2. Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie’s drastic cut may have been the story of the night. Back to blonde after a dalliance with dark brunette, the Aussie star’s chic bob was all anyone could talk about.

3. Scarlett Johansson


Scarlett Johansson sported her recently debuted undercut, shocking all those who missed the drastic style change earlier this month. The edgy short style was paired with a fresh face, pink lips and elegant emerald jewels, proving just how glamorous shaved sides can be.

4. Zendaya


This young American singer and actress was a stand out on the red carpet, wearing a sophisticated prom-like dress and pearl earrings with dreadlocks and scoring points for her audaciousness in the process.

5. Lady Gaga


You never know what you’re going to get with Lady Gaga, but the recently engaged singer showed up meat-free this awards show, still garnering attention with this innovative ponytail with floral embellishments. Her white blonde locks and red lips proved shockingly classic for the bold star.

6. Solange Knowles


Styling her big curls down in a voluminous bob, Solange opted for coral from her bright lips to her sleek high-necked outfit. While we love her sharp eyes and vivid colour choices, it’s her affinity for volume and curls done right that has us swooning most.
