Whitney picks best Oscars hair

Whitney Port noticed a definite hair trend on the red carpet at the 2013 Academy Awards: "messy, sexy updos" and "retro side part waves." Every A-lister looked amazing, but the designer weighed in on her favorite hair looks of the night.

Really not liking the short hair, when you cut off your hair you are saying I am too lazy to deal with my hair. Hair is the feminine part of a women's allure. Ann Hathaway and Charlize Theron don't look good with those do's and how do you have 2 inch black roots when your hair is 2 1/2 inches long?
