    Hairstyle: Side Swag {Up & Out}

    If I could describe this look with an emoji, it would be the two hands side-by-side usually paired with the notoriously slanged, “YASS!”  🙌

    ^Up & Out’s vintage look — so glam, and perfect for the Oscars!

    How FLAWLESS are these waves? Up and Out killed this look with some help from {my personal favorite} Moroccan Oil Hairspray and a paddle brush. If you haven’t visited Up & Out, you MUST stop what you are doing and make an appointment NOW. I have been there on some rainy days {literally} and the staff and vibe always brighten my mood. My old soul loves watching ‘I Love Lucy’ while being pampered! Follow them on IG: @hobokenblowbar.

     

    Hairstyle: Text-Your {Two 01 Salon}

    The secret is out; we LOVE lived-in, worn styles. There is literally NOTHING better {except maybe BEING Jennifer Lopez}, than second day hair.

    Hairstyle: Way Up {Salon Gatto}

    The Oscars is usually an awards show that celebs tap into their stern side and aim for a more polished look. However, does anyone notice that Adam Sandler shows up in a T- shirt almost every year for the black tie event? While this wouldn’t be my preference, it is nice to see someone stay true and not take the social soiree so serious. We’re all for a romantic updo, but sometimes they tend to look bridal. And unless you’re getting married, that look can be overdone.

    Salon Gatto is blurring lines left and right with this braided, pulled-back, edgy look. Such a gorg look that can be dressed up or down for any occasion! Christine and her staff kill the color and blowout game. Follow them on IG: @salongatto

     

    Hairstyle: Half Full {Salon Caru}

    Last but certainly not least, is a half up-half down look that celebs often rock with a braid here, or a twist there.
