After her hair trial Friday, Anna Kendrick had us expecting a romantic, curly updo to go with a dramatic dress. So we have to hand it to her for keeping us on our toes, arriving on the Oscars red carpet with a sleek, simple updo to go with her modern, sheer J. Mendel dress. Toni & Guy Hair Meets Wardrobe’s global brand ambassador Mark Hampton followed up with us to let us know how the big night went.
First things first: The hair was a huge hit. “Everyone said as she left that they were very thankful. Her clothing stylist was like, ‘I’m so glad, you did such a great job, she looks really amazing’ and it was really nice. But it was always going to look amazing on Anna, wasn’t it?” he says.
He first met Kendrick when she was wearing jeans and a sweater, though she showed him gown photos to help him envision a good look for the dress. And when he saw the final product, he was blown away as well. “It made her look so beautiful!” he says. “It’s nice the way you see somebody in their sweatpants and then you see them in their ballgown looking amazing.”

Though it was drizzling, Hampton said he didn’t add anything additional to keep her hair in place. He used the line’s Volume Plumping Mousse for hold and worked through the Volume Plumping Whip for “a matte finish, not too shiny.”
So how long does it take to twist Kendrick’s hair into a sleek, not-too-shiny bun? “Probably longer than normal only because I cant get her to sit still,” he tells PEOPLE. “There’s lots of stuff going on, you don’t have like solid time!”
What did you think of the look Kendrick finished with? Were you a fan? Tell us in the comments!

We’ve all heard of on-set rituals, but this one may take the cake. We allllll remember when Keri Russell infamously chopped her curly locks into close-cropped pixie style while on the classic ’90s series, Felicity. It’s been more than a decade, but the hair ‘do has followed her even onto the set of The Americans!
Apparently it’s become the tradition for every cast and crew member to put it on and pose for a picture. The snaps are all hung on an improvised “Wall Of Shame,” decorated with the best and the worst of the wig. So, who wore it best? And more importantly, who wore it worst? Noah Emmerich thinks he has a shot at being the worst, but then again, so does Holly Taylor, whose head was pretty much swallowed by the wig.
Some other the stars featured on this wall are Matthew Rhys, Susan Misner, and (naturally) Keri herself. Check out the clip above for more!

We’re in the middle of The Tanning of America week here at VH1, and, in addition to the four-part television event airing Feb. 24-27 at 11 PM ET, last week’s screening was quite the star-studded gathering. Steve Stoute, author of the book that inspired the series, was in attendance. Hip-hop legends Nas and Fab Five Freddy showed up, too. Comedy icon Jerry Seinfeld made an appearance, as did Video Music Box creator Ralph McDaniels and our own #HipHopChangedUs contributor Sharon Carpenter. The message of The Tanning of America became a reality on this special night. Check out more photos in our gallery to see what else went down.
