Hollywood waves and nude nails: the key trends from the Oscars 2015

002
Hollywood waves and low side buns paired with nude nails were the stand out trends from this year’s Oscars, according to a haircare and beauty expert.

Laura Meredith, haircare expert and beauty blogger from Hairtrade.com has revealed how you can recreate these glamorous looks from your own home.

It was plain to see that subtle, nude nails were all the rage on the red carpet this year with stars like Margot Robbie toning down her bold lips with neat, nude nails.

Laura’s top tips to get nude nails right for you include finding the right shade for your skin tone.

ZP783_ANA_HANDSHOT 1_CMYKShe advises, “Finding a nude nail colour is a bit like finding your foundation shade, it wants to match the rest of your complexion in order to look crisp and clean.
“Look at the color of your nail bed, the tones that are there should match the tones in your nude nail polish. Try holding up your foundation bottle to your nail polish to compare shades.
“Nude nails look best on short, squared off nails that are well maintained, so make sure they are in tip top shape before you start applying the polish.”

In order to match your hairstyle with these neutral nails then you need to keep your hair simple yet elegant for true Oscars glamour.

This year, one hairstyle that001 cropped up regularly was Hollywood waves. Stars like Keira Knightley, America Ferrera, Chrissy Teigen and Carmen Ejogo all took inspiration from the glamorous 40’s this year.

“The great thing about this style is that it can work on almost any hair length,” reveals Laura. “The 003trick to getting really structured waves is to carefully section your hair and make sure the waves are even. If you’re going for a more undone look, try curling your hair in alternating directions towards and away from your face for each curl.
“If your hair goes into tight ringlets when using a curling wand, brush through your hair with your fingers to relax the waves.
“My favorite way of wearing this look is with a deep parting and swept all over to one side.”

If you’d like a step-by-step tutorial on how to get these waves, then see Hairtrade.com’s guide.

Another popular hairstyle this year was the classic updo with a twist, with many of the nominees sporting low side buns.

“This is another really versatile style, you can either make it romantically messy with escaping tendrils like Zoe Saldana or sleeked back and elegant like Sienna Miller,” says Laura.
“This look is much more achievable than you’d think and doesn’t require a great deal of products. If you’re putting your bun to the side then make sure it’s on the same side as your parting or direction of your fringe.”
