After months of playing it safe on the red carpet, newly-minted Oscar winner Natalie Portman finally took a style risk with this side-parted updo. Celebrity stylist Edward Tricomi says the key to this look is smoothing out the waves. "What makes this modern is that they are sleek waves--you don't want pouffy hair with this style," he says.

Sleek and chic was the name of the game for Gwyneth Paltrow, who paired her minimalist makeup with super-straight locks. "This looks incredible. It's very 60s feeling--hair parted in the middle with a very clean texture," says Tricomi.

As an Oscar co-host, Anne Hathaway needed a look that would suit her constant outfit changes for the show. This loose, romantic updo was just right--she wore it up on the red carpet, then quickly took it down for her onstage debut.

Mila Kunis' sophisticated, sideswept style is everything a great updo should be, and then some. "It's a Grecian style updo, so it has texture to it. It's very well done and constructed," says Tricomi.

Seriously, can Halle Berry ever look bad? The Oscar winner looked amazing sporting her signature crop with its piece-y texture and glossy finish. "It's perfect for her. I love it because it's modern, very architecturally-shaped hair," says Tricomi.

When your face looks as good as Cate Blanchett's, you don't need to get too fancy with your hair. "This is one of the more modern shapes on the red carpet--it's a very versatile cut. It's a 20's bob, but what modernizes it is that it's got layers and it's loosely done," says Tricomi.
