The two biggest trends on the red carpet

There seemed to be two major hair trends dueling on the red carpet Sunday night: side-swept Veronica Lake locks and less-than-perfect up sweeps. Leading ladies Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, and Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock all shined in loose retro waves, while Canadian starlet Rachel McAdams, Jennifer Lopez, and SJP all went with slightly-fuzzy versions of the classic chignon. We’re all for rocking the latter, but we’re not so sure it was ideal for stage lights and on-camera appearances. We noticed more than one presenter looking less than polished on-stage. To master long-lasting up-do’s try L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Indestructible Spray Creation Hairspray, $8. Available across Canada at drugstores and mass-market retailers.
