While updos—tight buns, mostly—were the hair story of last night's Oscars show, we managed to find plenty of examples of stars willing to show some texture.
Among the most lovely were the face-framing updos worn by Anna Kendrick and Demi Moore, each showcasing gentle waves.
Other textured looks featured long waves, such as those worn by Best Director winner Kathryn Bigelow and by singer Mariah Carey.
Side parts were big, and some actresses, such as Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock, added the tiniest bit of curl at the bottom.
The guys got into the picture, too, with Best Actor winner Jeff Bridges showcasing gorgeous waves and Best Adapted Screenplay winner Geoffrey Fletcher wearing a tidy afro flat-top.
