This year, the Grammys red carpet was all about blunt, choppy bobs. But the ladies on this year's Oscars red carpet stepped it up a notch in the beauty department; making it all about the hairstyle, not the haircut. Instead of bone straight manes or effortless loose curls, the hair was glamorous, sleek, and intricate. We rounded up the best updos—including Daisy Ridley's Star Wars-inspired hairdo, Olivia Munn's low bun, and Kerry Washington's half-up, half-down pompadour.
