winners from the glittering line up.

Bejo (Nominated for Leading Actress
in The Artist)
Berenice has lightened her hair colour

scooped up into a shaggy chignon’
with loose tendrils allowed to fall

Streep (Nominated for Leading Actress
in The Iron Lady)
You can’t argue with this lady’s updo
– soft, bouffant curls - we love it

Williams (Nominated for Leading

nape of her neck for a modern but
classic look - B&B love!
The Bond Girls Berenice Marlohe
and Naomie Harris rocked ‘texture
with polish’ – not beachy or scrunched
but worked with their natural curl.
We reckon went for
a 60’s bond girl look.
