Effort-less was More at this Year’s Oscars

You are here

The Oscars… the film event of the year, where the world’s best actors and actresses come together to celebrate the very best in film.

It’s the perfect occasion for celebrities to get dolled up, show off their favourite styles and make a statement.

This year, the “do it yourself” look took centre stage – with tousled waves, messy buns and milk maid plaits being the in thing.

Our favourite look was carried off by Kate Winslet, who partnered her black floor-length gown with soft beach waves and natural make-up.

Natural waves are all the rage at the moment – Margot Robbie and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner also adopted this style, looking effortlessly beautiful on the red carpet.

It’s the “just got out of bed” look that has recently swept the internet, mastered by thousands of women across the globe looking for a simple, yet stunning look – just hit “natural waves” into YouTube and you’ll see millions of results.

Olivia Wilde, who divided fashion critics with her choice of dress last night, went for the tousled milk-maid plait look. The popular style, which uses a French plait wrapped around the head, is a quick fix favourite.

This delicate up-do is perfect for a day trip, night out on the town or to calm down an overpowering frock... best for mid to long length hair.
