Oscars 2012! The Hairstyles on the Red Carpet!

Hollywood’s biggest night came and hit with a fashionable bang that left us drooling…. Over the gorgeous gowns, stunning couples, surprise wins, decadent jewelry, and of course, the hair!

Some of our absolute favorite hairstyle looks for the night were bold, dramatic, unexpected, and infinitely chic.  Thick, heavy bangs, oversized buns (and we’re not talking about JLo’s gorgeous bod) and retro glam ignited the carpet.  And honestly, who could forget Viola Davis’ au-natural and gorgeous short crop?!

If ever there was a woman who could pull off a bun at any given moment, it would be JLo.  She simply looks like a goddess with this elegant, simple, yet chic topknot.

Tina Fey was also not one to shy away from an oversized bun, and we love her for it.  Looking uncharacteristically regal and elegant, she stunned us with her slightly-below-the-crown enlarged crescent bun.

Natalie Portman went for the simple elegance of the old Hollywood retro look, with a soft side swept bang and gentle rolled curl on the ends.  We say, bravo!

The lovely Gweneth Paltrow opted out of the traditional updo, and instead went for a sleek low ponytail to offset her sleek, simple, yet wow-factor gown.  Classic!

How can we not adore the beautiful new Miss Marilyn herself, Michelle Williams.  In a pale blond pixie and peony lips, her look was one of our very favorites of the night.

Rounding out the top of our Hollywood glamour list was Penelope Cruz, who accented her soft pastel gown with equally soft side swept curls, pulled away from her face to showcase that amazing smile.

We are so excited to see Viola Davis take off her wigs (at her husband's encouragement) and rock her natural locks!  There are few things more beautiful than a woman proud to showcase her personal style with freedom and grace!  Bravo!

Lastly, we loved the look of Rooney Mara's blunt cut bangs!  So thick, dark, dramatic and chic!

Here are some of our favorite hairstyle looks for the night!  Who do you think wore it best?
