Annette Bening's Glammed Up Short 2011 Oscar's Hairstyle

Four-time nominee Annette Bening  nominated for her role in The Kids Are Alright dazzled in her embellished gunmetal Naeem Khan gown and 66-carat emerald Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

Annette wore her trademark short chop hairstyle brushed smoothly off her face with lots of  lift and volume right off the hairline in the front.

Although sometimes Annette wears her short hair choppy and spikey, to give it glam, she wore it sleek, finished and polished.

To create this hairstyle her hair was softly curled all over with pin curls positioned throughout Annette's hair to create a more sophisticated look.

The beautiful actress has well placed highlights and lowlights throughout her tresses which opens up her face and gives her a fresh and polished look.

For a similar look skip the pin curls and use a 1/2 to 1" curling iron on 1 inch sections all over the head.  When hair is cool warm some pomade in the palms of your hands and finger-rake soft curls.  Use an iron to curl tresses around the hairline up and off the face for a smooth and elegant short hairstyle worthy of a walk down Oscar's Red Carpet.

Daily Hair Tip
For a low maintenance style, try to work with your natural hair type rather than against it. For example, if your hair is naturally wavy, select a hairstyle that works easily with the waves.
