Hair Alert! See Which Stars Sport Swept-Back Tresses at Academy Awards

Jennifer Lawrence, Portia de Rossi and Bette Midler all confidently sport a combed-back, short 'do.


What do Jennifer Lawrence, Bette Midler and Portia de Rossi have in common? They all went for a short, blown-back hairstyle on the Oscars red carpet.

And to complete their easy yet glamorous look? Simple diamond and pearl studs — we’re loving de Rossi’s Dior “Mise En Dior” tribal earrings — for a more laid-back elegance.

Obviously, this hairstyle defies any age limits. Lawrence, 23, Midler, 68, and de Rossi, 41, each prove you can work this ‘do at any stage of life.

We guess that applies to color too. Midler (in Reem Acra) and Lawrence (in Dior) both glowed in fire engine red.

But back to their hair. The real key to pulling it off is confidence, which each star has in spades. What do you think of their looks?
