How to Get Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar Chignon:

You can’t be the most loved woman in show business, but you can replicate her hair. Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar updo is one of the most requested hair tutorial looks on YouTube, but this particular video wins our heart because it’s clear, shows details, and is close enough so you can see every strand of hair. {LetsMakeItUp}

How to Get Classic Hollywood Waves

Sally Hershberger may be better known for her downtown style, but that doesn’t mean she can’t do a great, classic wave. This tutorial features Paul Perez from her Los Angeles salon, who shows how to achieve this intricate hairstyle. Watch as he twists and perfects each curl and wave. {Sally Hershberger}

How to Get Adele’s Mod Inspired Updo:

We're not gonna lie: Adele’s Golden Globes hairdo looks pretty hard. There’s so much careful backcombing in the first half of this video, I wasn’t sure if there was going to be a good looking end result. But around the four minute mark, it all starts to come together with a beautiful, polished, sleek and soft mod updo.{gossmakeupchat}

How To Get Finger Waves:

We saw finger waves on stars like Stacy Keibler and Amy Adams this season. In perhaps the most instructional video of the bunch, Sam Villa, shares two techniques about how to get old school, 1920s inspired hair using a marcel curling iron, with technical, precise instructions. {samvillahair}

How to Get an Upside Down French Braid Bun:

Nina Dobrev wore this style to a 2013 Golden Globes after party, but it's been an internet fave style for longer than that, if the number of page views (almost 4 million!) on this high quality tutorial are any indication. Take a shot at replicating it.

How To Get a Red Carpet Worthy Fishtail Braid:

While Lucy Liu's Golden Globes dress got mixed reviews, people were loving her fancy fishtail braid. No one on YouTube has come up with a video tutorial yet for her exact innovative and fresh french fishtail side braid (someone get on it stat!) but we found two videos that explain in detail how to accomplish the look. The first video explains how to start the french fishtail on the side of the head and the second explains how to finish the fishtail braid off, with specific instructions, right down to where to pull the hair from, zoom-ins so you can see the plaiting actually happen, and tips on how to grip the hair. Start with the first video and then end with the second to get Liu's full look. Happy plaiting. {HairForMyPrincess; eHowStyle}
