Oscar Fab

So, I missed the Oscars because quite frankly, I wasn't interested in watching them this year. The only thing I wanted to see was the clothes, makeup and hair that was displayed on the red carpet, and I knew I could catch that online. Here are a few photos I snagged from YBF that features some of the hairstyles that caught my eye:

#1. Tanika Ray

I think these curling-iron crafted curls were a nice change from Tanika's wild, naturally curly hair. Don't get me wrong, I love the wild look she's known for sporting, but these curls provided a more polished look suitable for a classy night out with Oscar.

#2. Jada Pinkett-Smith

Although I think braids are played, I find it refreshing that a sista wore an afro-centric style to an event that has been known for shutting the likes of us out of its festivities. Jada looked gorgeous as always. I think the way she pulled the braids back made her hair look simple, yet elegant. Love it.

#3. Alicia Keys

My girl Alicia looked very pretty, almost like a black (or biracial) Barbie doll. I see she's really given up the Tomboy vibe and is now embracing full-on womanhood with this whimsical look. Although I love the color of her hair and how it looks from afar, I'm not digging the wiggish look up close.
