Though the hype of the event surrounds the clothes, the hair is not to be ignored. Here's a quick peek at what's hot for the upcoming seasons, with a focus on a few trends.

Hair History – Evolution of the Bob

Post by Kenzi It's been popular for nearly a century. It's been looked down upon and admired. It's been sleek, it's been short, it's been voluminous, long, curly, layered and blunt. It's evolved and morphed with each decade, along with changing styles and tastes. It's arguably the most classic hairstyle, ever. It's the bob. And here's where it came from. Though the bob really became popular in the 20th century, the haircut that we now know and love was inspired by a famous heroine back in the 15th century. Joan of Arc is said to have worn her hair cropped up near her ears in one of the oldest known versions of the bob. For Joan, the style was used to disguise her gender, as well as being a practical cut throughout the 100 Years' War. In 1909, French hairdresser Antoine revived the look at his salon, referencing Joan of Arc as an influence. The bob is still referred to as "coupe de la Jeanne D'Arc" in France.

First up, the winners of the night - for style, that is. Olivia Wilde donned a gorgeous green gown that emphasized her baby bump rather than hiding it. We commend her for that, and love the mermaid vibe of the Gucci dress with her loose ombre hair.

Cute, eyecatching, and something that set her apart from the rest. (Photo: John Shearer/Invision/AP) Our third style hit not only won in the fashion department, she also took home the Globe for best actress for her role in "American Hustle", and on the red carpet she looked as though she'd stepped straight off the set. The plunging neckline and vibrant red of her Valentino [...]
