    There are few fashion moments worthy of such attention as the Academy Awards. Every year, we wait with baited breath to see what our favorite celebrities will don on the red carpet, from dresses to hair and makeup. The trends that are seen on this very special awards night are most often the looks that prevail for the coming season. Here, owner of Gocha Salon and celebrity hairstylist and makeup artist Gocha Hawkins shares her favorite star styles of the night, and how to get the look for everyday wear.

    Good Side
    Stars like Busy Philipps, Maya Rudolph, and Stacy Keibler rocked the side-swept look, but how does a normal girl get the style to stay in place? Gocha explains, “The side-swept style was a big winner on the red carpet last night. With celebrities like Maya Rudolph stepping out with big, voluminous curls, many women will be coveting this look for prom and wedding season. This style works best for women with side parts, which provides a natural separation for hair. Create big, impactful waves with large hot rollers, and pull back the side with less thickness. Spritz with hairspray for hold. If you want to go with a more whimsical version of the look, you can secure with a hair pin that provides a little bit of a bling factor, and gives more of a guarantee that hair will stay in place.”
