Apart from the excitement of the awards, The Oscars have always been a great place to gather inspiration for fashion and beauty and the 2024 Academy Awards were no different. When it came to the styles seen, this year’s event was a spectacle of extended silhouettes, extreme proportions, clavicles, floating straps, so much glowing skin, and too many carats to count. As every bit of extra that we absolutely adore, hair and makeup were beautifully minimal to balance. With a few stunning styles that stood out, we’re detailing a few of our favorites that are easily adaptable for salon guests.

“It was hard to choose a favorite look this year, but I can see clients asking for Florence Pugh’s beautiful deep side part bob with an undone cool girl wave, and Emily Blunt’s high bun adorned with a ruffled fishtail braid giving it a touch of edge but still up for the occasion,” explains Anna Peters, Sam Villa ArTeam Member and owner of  re:TREAT Color + Hair Design and Studio  @annas_hair_retreat.

Hairstyles Inspired by the 2024 Academy Awards

Florence Pugh’s Bob 

*Even if your guest doesn’t have a bob, a faux bob effect can be created with a full body ponytail.

  1. Start with a deep side part, apply Redken Root Lifter at the base in 1” sections throughout the deep part side. With Sam Villa Signature Series 9-Row Finishing Brush lift roots up and follow with the nozzle of Sam Villa Pro Light Ionic Blow Dryer for maximum volume.
  2. To create this effortless glam texture, it’s important to take sections of hair randomly working up towards the head. Use a Sam Villa Signature Series Sleeker Professional Straightening Iron and with 1”-2” sections of hair, hold iron vertically and round hair forward creating a wave then half way down the strand switch directions rounding hair back to form a beautiful wave pattern that is not too curled. Lift and spray finishing hairspray at the base of deep side part.
  3. If hair is long, at this point gather hair at nape loosely not stretching out the texture or brushing through just gather with hands. Secure loosely with elastic, shake a little to release any front layers and pull until desired “bob” length is showing from the front. Tie a loose sparkling bow around elastic. Finish with shine spray all over.


Emily Blunt’s High Bun

  1. Working with natural texture, and a Sam Villa Artist Series Polishing Paddle Brush, brush hair up into a high ponytail. Secure with hair bungie. Split ponytail into two equal sections.
  2. Wrap first section around base of ponytail creating a full bun, and pin in place.
  3. Create a fishtail braid through second section, pinch at ends and carefully pull each strand of braid out a little, creating fullness and softness. Secure with elastic.
  4. Wrap fishtail all around bun and pin to secure. Finish with Redken Triple Take 32 Hairspray.
