Oscar Hair How To: Angelina Jolie & Lousie Roe

I commandeered the T.V tonight & watched the Oscar's with my pug Eddy and a glass of Pinot Noir.
 While viewing the red carpet madness, I realized that I've re-created 2 of the hairstyles before & want to share. Again! 
(in case you missed it)
Angelina Jolie
The secrets to Angie's hairstyle are 1) a few long layers in the front - around the face - and 2) curling your hair with a hair straightener to create maximum shine, control & hold
This video will walk you through a similar look (note: hair tutorial begins at 16:03)
Louise Roe
Louise's hairstyle is one of my go to favorites and I've done several different versions of it. The trick is to create enough volume on the side to give the chignon a full, bodacious effect. My tutorials show you how to do this WITHOUT hair extensions 
Emma Stone inspired Side Chignon:
 Or perhaps you fancy this Charlize Theron inspired side updo
I've worn this hairstyle to parties & last night's soccer match, it's truly versatile. I wish you all happy styling & a lovely beginning to your week!
