Finally it was the 2012 Oscars! The 84th Annual Academy Awards was held at Kodak Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 26 and the stars looked amazing from head to toe. In terms of hairstyles, this year’s Oscars saw a vast diversity, from classic updos and glamorous waves to fresh ponytails and chic bobs. If you're looking for a super stylish and red carpet worthy 'do, check out below the 10 most memorable hairstyles from the 2012 Oscars and get inspired!

1.  Rooney Mara’s Classic Bun with Blunt Bangs
Loads of celebs opted to wear elegant updos on the red carpet of the 2012 Oscars, and Rooney Mara’s version is surely a stand-out. Her sleek, tight bun is classic and feminine already, while the blunt-cut bangs add a touch of freshness and edge. Rooney is flawless in this style.

2.  Penelope Cruz’s 50′s Inspired Curly Updo
With this 50’s inspired updo, Penelope Cruz stole the show even it’s the Oscars! Her long brunette locks were styled in large, vintage curls and pinned up for a faux bob. Elegant, glossy and gorgeous. We love.

3.  Kate Mara’s Flirty Pinned-Back Chignon
Rooney's sister Kate Mara showed us another Oscar-perfect hairstyle – loosely pinned-back low chignon accessorized with glittery hair clips. Kate completed the style with a dramatic side part, adding chic flair to the overall ladylike look.

4.  Jessica Chastain’s Romantic Half-up, Half-down Hairstyle
Best Supporting Actress nominee Jessica Chastain wore one of the unforgettable hairstyles at the 2012 Oscars. We love the perfect blend of color and volume of her hair – the fabulous fiery red shade, loose and tousled waves, and the slight bump at the crown that gives the whole look a romantic feel.

5.  Natalie Portman’s Natural Long Wavy Strands
Last year's Best Actress winner Natalie Portman went natural wearing her hair down in soft gentle waves and looked drop dead gorgeous. We really fall for this incredibly effortless, delicate look.

6.  Sandra Bullock’s High, Voluminous Ponytail
Sandra Bullock kept things simple, clean and fresh for the 2012 Academy Awards. She wore her hair in a high ponytail, which drew attention to her diamond earrings and radiant skin.

7.  Gwyneth Paltrow’s Low, Sleek Ponytail
Didn’t Gwyneth Paltrow look like wearing a chic bob haircut when she stepped out for the 2012 Oscars? It was actually a low-slung ponytail. A deep side part and gloss finish completed this simple yet amazing style.

8.  Rose Byrne’s Classic Sleek Bob Haircut
Here’s the real, classic bob! With blunt-cut layers, glossy finish and eyebrow-skimming full bangs, Rose Byrne rocked this ever-popular haircut that one can’t skip for the night.

9.  Michele Williams’ Simple Short Haircut
Actress Michele Williams stunned as usual with her clean short haircut. We especially love the ravishing blonde color of her hair, which softens the look and keeps all eyes on her beautiful face and dress.

10.  Milla Jovovich’s Wavy Short Hairstyle

Unlike Michele Williams, Milla Jovovich styled her short hair in subtle waves and added rolled side bangs for extra flirty effect, showing that short hairstyles could also be so feminine and alluring. Love it!
