The hairstyles chosen managed to achieve a surprising balance being a wonderful combination of a variety of different elements that managed to create the impression of understated elegance. While some celebrities decided to impress with perfectly styled tresses in a classical way, others adopted hairstyles that reflected a more playful, carefree attitude towards styling. Both of these attitudes were beneficial as they reflected the diversity of hairstyles that can be obtained using different hair styling concepts in various forms.

As it was expected, updo hairstyles were practically dominant on the red carpet under different forms, depending on the personality of each celebrity. Sleek updo hairstyles were an excellent choice for celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Emily Blunt, Lauren Graham, Emily Deschanel, Anna Paquin or Rita Wilson who chose to highlight their best features with hairstyles that managed to impress both because of their elegance, sexiness as well as their undeniable refinement.

Wavy updo hairstyles have proven to be an excellent alternative for those who decided to go for a more romantic and youthful look. Eva Longoria Parker, Keri Russell or Tanisha Hall looked absolutely amazing with loose wavy bun hairstyles. Other celebrities like Lo Bosworth, Edie Falco or Ann-Margaret chose to create volume and go for classic hairstyles with a subtle vintage vibe, following one of the most important hairstyles trends of the season.

Loose wavy hairstyles were also among the top hairstyles many celebrities chose to highlight their natural beauty. This simple yet highly effective approach was used by an impressive number of celebrities.
Christina Hendricks, Kelly Osbourne, Rutina Wesley, Sofia Vergara or Toni Collette managed to impress the audience with gorgeous styled waves that suited them perfectly regardless of their hair length. Other female celebrities adopted this idea in a different way, creating waves that were barely noticeable, being extremely subtle. Nancy Juvonen, Katrina Bowden, Lea Michele, Stephanie Pratt or Claire Danes decided to go for subtlety to be able to get a chic, girly, innocent looking hairstyle.
