We’ve weighed in about the gowns but what about the Oscar hair? Was it worthy, worst or wonky? For an expert’s opinion, we went to Marylle Koken who owns and runs the popular Harlot Salon in the trendy Abbott Kinney area in L.A.

The Academy Awards of 2014 have passed, congrats to all the winners! The world may have paid the most attention to the gowns and acceptance speeches, but I of course was all about the Oscar 2014 hairstyles! From Liza Minelli’s bold blue locks to Amy Adams super sophisticated Grace Kelly roll, here are the picks for best Oscar hair 2014…

Amy Adam’s Grace Kelly Roll

The sculpting, the shine, the detail on top: Amy Adams 2014 Oscars updo is utter perfection. This sultry vixen really could do no wrong. The style and form of this updo is truly on point.


Lady Gaga’s Modern Pigtail

Who knew Lady Gaga could glam up quite like this? While she’s obviously wearing a wig, we love Gaga’s Oscar 2014 hair. The color and hairdo match with each other perfectly and are modern, yet classy.



Liza Minelli’s Blue Lock

We love bold hair colors at the Harlot, but didn’t expect to ever see them at the Oscars. Liza Minelli surprised me with her sassy single blue lock, and I love it! What a ballsy Academy Award hairstyle! For some one who has the crypt keeper knocking at her doors she really did surprise us with this bold move. You go Liza Minelli… You go.

Maria Menounos Braided Updo

I love me some braided updos. This Oscar hairstyle looks a lot like the one Jessica Alba had at the Academy Awards in 2008, but with a little more volume and casual chic. I approve!

Margot Robbie’s Svelte Curls

Va-va-voom! I almost didn’t recognize ‘The Wolf of Wallstreet’‘s Margot Robbie with her new dark locks, but I love the color! That in combination with the classic, shiny curls and a sexy side part make for some perfect 2014 Oscar hair. You really never can go wrong with the classic wave she’s giving me Veronica Lake and I Absolutely love it.

Viola Davis’ Finger Waves

Finger waves were all the rage in the twenty’s, but also look fab on a modern woman. Viola Davis’ finger waves are perfectly sculpted, but still look fresh and fashion forward. A success! Speaking of viola Davis did anyone happen to see her husbands make up mishap… Yikes.

Emma Watson’s Punky Hairstyle

Many beauty critics may not have liked it, but we loooove Emma Watson’s punky 2014 Oscar hairstyle. It’s just the right amount of casual, and the little twisted hair strands and star clips give it a nice edge. I might have taken better care of the loose hair strands at the bottom – like added some volume and curls – but that doesn’t take away from this cool Academy Awards 2014 hair.
