100 Award Show-Worthy Hairstyles

From Poised Plait Updos to Hollywood Hair

— January 10, 2013 — Pop Culture
With the awards season upon us and the recent release of Academy Award nominations, these award show-worthy hairstyles will inspire you, whether you're headed to the red carpet IRL or via television.

The red carpet portion of every award show is as integral as the ceremony itself. What you wear and how you present yourself is everything. Aside from the gorgeous gowns and fabulous make-up, hair is an essential part of pulling off a glamorous moment. Depending on the gown or suit of choice, starlets can opt for a wide variety of hairstyles. If their dresses have exposed necklines and are strapless, it is best to go with an updo. If they are going for a dramatic vibe they can choose from a lovely selection of old Hollywood hairstyles.

When award shows come around it is always a great idea to look to the past and with this list of award show hairstyles you too can hit the red carpet in style.
