Oscars 2014 with hairstyle predictions from our Pantene Celebrity Stylists, Danilo and Kim Kimble.
When walking the red carpet, Kim Kimble suggests keeping it fresh, simple and sleek. “The Oscars tend to attract the dramatic, ornate type gowns, so those who wear their hair longer, like Sandra Bullock, will go for a long, straight and sleek style, possibly half up, but leaning more towards a simplistic and chic look.”
Since nothing compares to the transformative power of hair (no, not even wearing a swan dress), Kim also suggests surprising fans with a fresh new look, “I expect we’ll see a number of short to mid-length bob styles on the red carpet in response to the very long, heavy styles of the past few years.”
Pantene Celebrity Stylist & Global Ambassador Danilo is all about bold, contemporary styles on this year’s red carpet. “I anticipate the key look is going to be a red carpet worthy style for smooth, clean, crisp hair like Cate Blanchett’s.” says Danilo. And similar to Kim, Danilo is also predicting a presence of “standout, edgy yet elegant, short styles.”
The jewels worn at the Oscars never disappoint, and Danilo expects the starlets to use jewelry in new and interesting ways this year, “such as a brooch on the deep sided part of waved hair.”
When preparing for the Oscars, Danilo suggests channeling iconic Hollywood glamour. “I believe the styles will nod to the 20’s with either long, classic glamour waves or a feminine chignon.”
