Oscar Night is the event of the year for many established and rising stars in the movie industry. On and off the red carpet, glamorous outfits and festive hairdos contribute to the ambience and excitement. The gala night at this year’s Oscar Awards was certainly a feast for the eyes. We invite you to have a close look at some of the many beautiful hairstyles of the stars

  • The film industry’s gala night took place on 2nd March 2014 in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The red carpet was rolled out for the stars to receive the Academy Award of Merit as the ‘Oscar’ is officially called. Whether the little gold statuette was dubbed 'Oscar' by the Motion Picture Academy’s director because it looked like his Uncle Oscar or whether its name is a reference to a not quite so dignified vaudeville character is still a matter of debate.

    Traditionally, the Oscar Awards are as much a celebration of achievements in the movie industry as they are a stage for everyone who is anyone in the movie business. Show business is a natural part of the event. This year, a selfie showing a group of celebrities crashed the Twitter servers, Jennifer Lawrence fell over her gown again, moderator Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza for all, and alas, Leonardo DiCaprio did not get an Oscar – again!

  • Two Oscars Are Better than One

    Leonardo DiCaprio, long-time darling of audiences, was nominated for an Oscar for the third time. However, the award committee did not yet award him the coveted statuette. This year, they favoured actor Matthew McConaughey over DiCaprio for playing the lead role in the 'Dallas Buyers Club', a drama about access to aids drugs. In his acceptance speech, he paid tribute to his fellow competitors: 'I did not hear a wrong note anywhere.'

    Jared Leto was honoured with an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in the movie 'Dallas Buyers Club'. He played a transsexual in the movie. Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey could have also run neck and neck for 'Best Dressed Man'. They both dressed up in a white tux but contrasted it with casually styled hair.

    Glamorous retro waves found favour with many female stars. It was clearly the winning hairstyle at the 2014 Oscar Awards. This year’s Oscar winner Cate Blanchett styled her retro waves with side parting while Sandra Bullock swept her retro waves and curls over her right shoulder. While Sandra Bullock herself did not win an Oscar this year, she did star in the movie 'Gravity'. With seven Oscars, this movie was unbeatable.

    We hope you will enjoy our pictures of winning Oscar hairstyles in our gallery.

    Actress Margot Robbie dazzles us as a blonde in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'. At the Oscar Awards 2014, she demonstrated how well dark hair becomes her. She parted her beautiful mocha-brown retro waves on the right side in an exact line. The dark berry-coloured lips and exaggerated eyebrows provided eye-catching accents and the touch of elegance befitting the Oscar Awards

    Like last year, Jennifer Lawrence stepped on her gown again and stumbled. However, the rest of the evening was not a repetition of last year’s success after the 'slip-up'. So far, last year’s Oscar has no companion. The young actress may need more practice wearing long gowns but she certainly has the style and nonchalance to take such minor mishaps in stride. Her styled back short hair reflects her endearing casual style

Her straight fringes extended slightly past her eyebrows
