Once again, hair at the Oscars was ordinary, not inspiring.  Here are just a few looks on celebs attending the 2020 event.
Top Left to Right : Renee Zellweger, who  won Best Actress for her role as Judy Garland wore a safe but chic low bun.
Second Row L to R : Billie Ellish in Chanel and her greened interesting messy hair … Salma Hayek in Gucci with a Bucheron necklace in her curled updo … Saoirse Ronan with a tiny jewel and short bangs … Third Row L to R : Janelle Monae in Ralph Lauren with a glam hood,  and  sleek hair,  later  with a crimped ’40s poof …   Zazie Beetz a lovely pile up of natural texture … Bottom Row L to R :  Florence Pugh nicely knotted updo with roots showing all over the place  … Brad Pitt, won Best Supporting Actor Oscar, badly in need of a haircut but still  looking gorgeous, and elegant in a velvet jacket.    Missing a photo of Lucy Boynton who had pearls on her part, the most original of all.

Big curly hair is now unisex, trending for both sexes, and looks as good on him as on her, especially if red and the curls are controlled with the right hair care products, in this case by Oribe.   The fashions at the Apotts Collection Fall/Winter 2020 Show designed by Aaron Potts, were “modern, artistic, useful clothes. infused with creativity and joy.”   A theme of the collection was color/fabric blocking, both for silhouettes sleek and voluminous in fabrics that were familiar, fashions with a sense of ease.   Love the coat, love the hair.

A camel suit embroidered with wildflowers on the lapels opened the David Hart Men’s Day New York Fashion Week Show for Fall/Winter 2020. Worn with Christian Loubiutin silver shoes, the precisely tailored suit was also shown with long hair, which seems to be making a comeback for men. The title of the show was R. Mutt, referring to Marcel Duchamp and was a “snapshot of our time and how guys are dressing today,” said Hart. The collection featured modern guys dressed in modern ways from grunge to casual to dressed up.
