Get the Looks: 3 Hair Trends From The Oscars

Want easy Oscar hair? I'm personally loving the Sandra Bullock sleek style. Here, Pureology PureArtists Natasha Sunshine, Sherilynn Smart, Darren Pena, April Webster and Mary Katherine Hecht give their top three hair trends of the Academy Awards and how to achieve these looks:

The Classic Bun as seen on Zoe Saldana and Nicole Richie

1. Blow hair dry from hairline towards the back of the head.
2. Create a horseshoe section from recession to the crown to the recession. Clip away neatly.
3. Secure the remaining hair in a smooth ponytail in the center back.
4. Smooth sides and work all the way through the end of the tail.
5. Form a bun with the tail by wrapping it around the base of the ponytail until you run out of hair. Secure with bobby pins.
6. Gently lace the top section and then smooth the surface towards the existing bun.
7. Pinch the hair, then twist and secure with a bobby pin.
8. Tuck the ends up under the bun, secure with bobby pins.
9. Finish with GlossingMist for shine and InChargePlus for hold.

The Romantic Knot as seen on Demi Moore

1. Gently finger rake the hair into a loose ponytail to lower left back.
2. Secure with an elastic
3. Wrap hair around your hand and create a slip knot and secure with bobby pin at hairline
4. Finish with GlossingMist Shine Spray for shine and InChargePlus FirmFinishing Spray for hold.

Smooth, Soft Waves as seen on Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz

1. Blowdry smooth
2. Section a circle encompassing the high point of the head to right below the crown. Clip away neatly.
3. Create a left side part at the high point of the brow towards the high point of the head
4. Apply TextureTwist to the sides using a soft brush to smooth hair and pin both sides to center back using bobby pins.
5. Using a tail brush starting at the base of the circle, lace with one inch partings creating a cushion and volume.
6. Smooth with soft brush over the pinned section.
7. Finish with GlossingMist Shine Spray and InChargePlus Firm FinishingSpray for hold.
