Some of the best dressed wore white on the “Red Carpet.” From Laura Dern to Mary J. Blige to Margot Robbie. They were all stunners in white and ivory gowns.   We loved them all, but we also feel inspired that so many Hollywood A-Listers debuted new hairstyles.

I, Tonya actress Margot Robbie sported subtle changes to her classic bob. At the Oscars her hair was a bit shorter and textured. She looked amazing in her white gown and subtle make up, but it’s that new bob that turned heads on Oscar night.

The Oscars are presented for outstanding individual or collective efforts in 24 categories in filmmaking.

How about Mary J. Blige? Again in white, Mary J. Blige turned it up by adding volume, lots of it. She teamed that amazing look with an ivory Versace gown. By the way, those earrings are almost 7 carats of diamonds!

Finally, take a look at Lady Bird actress Saoirse Ronan. Saoirse turned to Instagram to document how her stylist achieved the blunt bob. And sometimes, it’s the picture from the back that shows it best. Certainly the case with this Oscar nominee!

Fresh Stylists Speak Out on American Wave


Walk into Fresh Salon, and you’re going to see something new, something exciting, and a product that our stylists are calling revolutionary! It’s ARROJO’S American Wave line. And because it’s developed by ARROJO, it’s setting a new gold standard. The line is specially formulated for the care and styling of textured hair. The ingredients are clean and green and the fragrances are fresh.



Here’s what our stylists are saying:



“I like it because there is a product for pretty much every texture!  You can enhance a wave, smooth out a wave, add body, add moisture… the list goes on, said stylist Emily Hamilton.


Nikki Prendergast says: “The co-cleanse is awesome!! It helps remove excess oil from the scalp, but helps retain moisture through the ends.”


Jen Busch is a fan: “I am obsessed with the American Wave line!  I love it because it is ultra-hydrating. It makes so many textures feel amazing and soft without feeling greasy.  Whether your hair is curly or just in need of moisture, this line is perfect and smells incredible!
