Big, fussy hair usually dominates at award shows, but several of Hollywood's leading ladies broke that trend at this year's Oscars. Chic and simple bobs were one of the night's hottest hairstyles.

Scarlett Johansson went for a messy bedhead-inspired style, while Marisa Tomei opted for a shorter version of Veronica Lake's famous waves and Cate Blanchett picked a sleek and straight side-swept 'do to complement her stunning Givenchy gown. Three distinct takes on a classic cut but all equally stylish.

What do you think about the pared down trend? Was it refreshing to see short cuts on the red carpet or did you miss the OTT updos of days gone by? Leave a comment below and let us know.
