Amidst the sea of pouffy gowns, the hairstyles of the 81st Annual Oscars showed much variation. Thankfully, the beauties of the red carpet chose a spectrum of stunning styles, and we tapped the hair gurus who created these looks to share their secrets on how to replicate for yourself.

Angelina Jolie chose a half-up half-down style that not only emphasized her stunning emerald earrings, but also her equally stunning willowy figure. A-list stylist David Babaii sprayed her head with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray ($10) to give the right amount of texture and hold. At Angelina’s crown, he sprayed David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier ($13) to the root area and down the hair shaft for added amplification. After back-brushing at the crown, pulling the sides back, and pinning them into place, he added David Babaii for WildAid Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray ($12) for long, yet natural lasting hold.

Robert Vetica created the modern French twist Marion Cotillard sported. To start this streamlined look, he detangled hair with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream ($30.78) and then blow-dried the hair smooth with a large round brush. He then applied Pureology Thickening Mist ($21.50) to lend a little volume and texture. “I teased the bee geebies out of the hair, concentrating mostly on the crown and back,” Robert shares. He then rolled the twist into an exaggerated cylinder that he pinned into place. To finish, he sprayed Moroccanoil Gold Glimmer Shine ($24) all over for additional shine.

Frederic Fekkai’s Renato Campora crafted a heavily molded, almost futuristic take on Old Hollywood for Kate Winslet. First applying Fekkai More All Day Density Styling Whip ($25) to damp hair for texture, he dried Kate’s whole head of hair smooth and then crafted waves with a one-inch barrel curling iron. He then rolled the hair under to evoke a faux bob, using Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra Light Finishing Crème ($23) to help seal in any loose ends, and finished the entire look with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($35).
