A few hours before the Carol actress headed to the show, her hairstylist, Robert Vetica, had us on the edge of our seats with a behind-the-scenes photo (which has since been taken down) hinting what looked like a major cut in the works, writing “Sometimes haircuts happen on Oscar day too.”

And a major change it is. The cut, which Vetica tells PeopleStyle is 6 inches shorter, falls just below her ears — a big difference from Blanchett’s previous collarbone-length bob. Vetica styled it with sleek waves swept to one side, with the other tucked behind her ear. As for the rest of her glam, makeup artist Jeanine Lobell created an understated bronze smoky eye, which allows Blanchett’s seafoam Armani Privé mermaid gown to steal the show with hand-sewn clusters of Swarovski crystals and white feathers.
