Oscar hair guide from Kate's hairdresser Richard Ward

It wasn't just the glamorous designer gowns of Hollywood's leading ladies that had us ooh-ing and aah-ing at the Oscars – the hairstyles far from failed to disappoint.

Jennifer Lawrence showed off a romantic, twisted swept-back bun that oozed elegance and grace without taking too much away from her stunning Dior Haute Couture creation.


Redhead Jessica Chastain, meanwhile, opted to channel old Hollywood glamour with cascading, side swept curls that perfectly clashed with her blush Armani Prive gown.

Naomi Watts chose a more dishevelled look, rocking a loose, messy updo that complemented her shimmering Armani Prive dress.


These are all styles we can recreate from home. So to help show us how, HELLO! Online enlisted celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward, who is responsible for Kate Middleton's trademark tumbling tresses.

Here, the mane man gives us a step-by-step guide to recreating each of the star's looks.
