As the "Academy Awards" ceremony is arguably the most prominent awards show (broadcasting live in more than 200 countries), it makes sense celebrities spend the better half of the day primping themselves -- there's a whole lot of people judging their chignons … including us. See the looks we love to reminisce about.

Hello gorgeous! The Oscars were different this year, but one thing stayed the same-amazing beauty! Below is a short "how to" on getting Gwyneth Paltrow's simple chic look!
WHO: Gwyneth Paltrow
WHAT: A chic, sleek red carpet look

WHEN: February 27, 2011

WHERE: The Academy Awards, The Kodak Theatre
THE LOOK: Sleek, straight, and simple.
HOW: Harry Josh, John Frieda International Creative Consultant, worked with Gwyneth to find a hairstyle that expressed her classic, elegant red carpet style.

THE INSPIRATION: “Gwyneth was my inspiration. She never tries to impress and her sophistication comes from within--a hairstyle shouldn't overshadow that. She's always had impeccably chic personal style and I wanted her hair to reflect that on the Red Carpet.” – Harry Josh

Harry started with the new John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight (an at-home alternative to salon straightening treatments) because he wanted to give Gwyneth super smooth, shiny hair that would stay straight all night long.

Harry began blowing out her hair with a Mason Pearson brush, carefully straightening each section at a time. Next, he went over each piece with a comb and a flat iron, ensuring every hair stayed sleek.

Harry gave her a center part and combed down all stray hairs and flyaways with the new John Frieda Full Repair Flyaway Tamer, a great on-the-go styling tool that's a must-have for any red carpet. Small enough to stash in a clutch, the mascara-like wand fixes any wild hair in seconds.
