With just two days before the Oscar Awards, celebrities (and their trusted team of fashion and beauty experts) are feverishly making last minute decisions for their red carpet debuts on Sunday.

From the gown to the beauty look, every detail is carefully scrutinized days, even weeks, in advance.

For a cool sneak peek, we scored some prized time with Anna Kendrick and hair stylist Mark Hampton, global ambassador of Toni & Guy, to see what exciting looks we might expect to see on her this weekend.

When it comes to red carpet looks, Anna isn't afraid to experiment with fresh new styles, and during her session with Hampton, they tried out two different ideas she's toying with for this weekend's main event.

Hampton is a fan of youthful braids and fun textures for young stars like Kendrick, so he gave her an elegant Grecian updo first, and then mixed in a funkier Spanish braids updo later.

As for the overall look, we'll have to wait until Sunday to see, but Kendrick, who wore two stunning gold necklaces by Phyllis + Rosie during the hair trial, did candidly open up about her prized Oscar dress, which she happened upon at New York Fashion Week. 

"When I saw it on the runway, I knew. It's a modern dress and not what I had in mind, but I saw it and I just knew," the actress gushed.

With that in mind, the pair discussed the perfect hairstyle that would suit her final gown selection, piquing our curiosity more than ever.

We'll be watching on Sunday!
