Oscar-winning hairstylist Paul LeBlanc, who created memorable looks for films like No Country for Old Men and Amadeus, has died at the age of 73.

The Canadian-born hair expert passed away at his home in Dieppe, New Brunswick, following a short illness on 2 October, his family announced.

He was best known for creating Javier Bardem's bowl cut hairstyle for the Coen Brothers' No Country for Old Men and replacing Carrie Fisher's iconic side buns with loose waves when she played Princess Leia in 1983 Star Wars instalment Return of the Jedi.

LeBlanc shared an Oscar with famed make-up artist Dick Smith for their work on 1984's Amadeus and earned an Emmy nomination for one of his many collaborations with Susan Sarandon - the TV miniseries Children of Dune.

He worked with the actress on films such as Stepmom, Twilight, Lorenzo's Oil and The Banger Sisters, and frequently collaborated with Sharon Stone on pictures like Basic Instinct, Sliver, Casino, and The Quick and the Dead.

He also worked often with director Darren Aronofsky, on films such as Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, and Black Swan, and with Joel and Ethan Coen on projects like O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Man Who Wasn't There, and The Ladykillers.

LeBlanc, who became a hairdresser at 18, earned a lifetime achievement award from the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild in 2003. In 2007, he opened his own studio.

LeBlanc previously spoke about coming up with the now iconic "scary" bowl cut Bardem sports in No Country for Old Men in 2007.

"I was creating a villain with him," LeBlanc told the CBC in 2007. "He and I together, with the input, of course, of the costumes and of the director and producers and all that, but this is what he and I came up with, and it's my interpretation, so I feel very proud of this."
