This year, the Oscars red carpet focused on some rather classic makeup, which allowed for a star turn by, yep, the hair. Pretty much everywhere you looked, there was a great style coming down the crimson rug. From intricate braids to retro curls, the fabulous 'dos came atop the heads of one major celebrity after the next. And, they will have us talking for days to come.
