Best Oscar Hairstyles of All Time
From Grace Kelly to Kate Winslet, these are the iconic celebrity hairstyles we think deserve a standing ovation
That is some serious "this could be my career-defining moment"-hair and makeup Oscar prep time.
And it's time well spent, as the "Academy Awards" ceremony is arguably the most prominent awards show. Broadcasting live in more than 200 countries, it makes sense celebrities spend the better half of the day primping -- there's a whole lot of people judging their chignons.
Skip to see the best Oscar hairstyles of all time now.
So what do all of these countless hours of hairstyling actually do for these celebrities? It makes or breaks their livelihood. OK, not really. But bad celebrity hairstyles make big news come Monday morning. (Remember the 2000 Oscars when Angelina wore an Elvira-inspired hairstyle or when Jennifer Lopez in 2002 thought that huge bouffant was a good idea?)
On the other hand, if an actress wears a pretty, yet subdued style, it usually goes unnoticed. But sometimes, just sometimes, a celebrity hairstyle is so perfect, so gorgeous, so Oscar-worthy itself that it gets just as much water cooler time as the awful dresses or horrid hairstyles.
To commemorate these hairstyles, the ones talked about around the world (literally), we put together a slideshow of the best Oscar hairstyles of all time. So sit back, relax and peruse the gorgeous, show-stopping celebrity hairstyles of: Charlize Theron, Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, and Grace Kelly.
