Possibly the most glamorous red carpet event in the celebrity calendar, Cannes film festival is a place many of us can only dream of going. Attended by the crème de la crème of celebrity society, Cannes is essentially the most prestigious catwalk in the world…
Luckily for you, it’s not just the stars who get to have spectacular red carpet worthy hairstyles. We’re here to share with you a few tips and tricks on how to achieve your favourite looks from the Cannes carpet.
Neat and sleek, this was a look favoured by many including the likes of Rosie Huntington Whitely and Alessandro Ambrosio. Both models chose to pair this style with a standout lip colour, plenty of dark eyeliner and stunningly sparkling earrings.
To achieve the perfect bun, we would highlight the fact that plenty of hair to play with is key; after all, no one wants a teeny top knot! To enhance the volume of your bun we recommend our pre-bonded base shade extensions. These bonds are so discreet, they remain pretty much invisible even when hair is styled in an up-do, and instantly add plenty of volume. Don’t be afraid to add a touch of glamour to your bun with hair accessorise.
The tousled look is the perfect way to offset a dressy outfit, giving it a stylish boho feel. This look was a favourite on the Cannes red carpet, showcased by beautiful ladies such as Toni Garrn and Jourdan Dunn.
This boho look works best when the tendrils of hair framing the face are slightly lighter than the rest of your hair. To save you the arduous and damaging task of dyeing or bleaching your hair, Great Lengths has a solution! Simply ask your stylist to integrate a few strands of Great Lengths pre-bonded hair extensions (that are a couple of shades lighter than the rest of your natural hair) to the hair at the sides of your head. Enjoy this colour addition plus extra thickness at the sides!
Loose and Au Natural
The perfect au-natural style is one desired by many but achieved by few. However, there were a couple of ladies on the Cannes red carpet who nailed it in our opinion – Karlie Kloss and Lea Seydoux.
Slightly dishevelled, yet pristinely polished, these two ladies absolutely slayed with their hairstyles at Cannes. We loved Lea’s softly tousled bright blonde LOB, and who could forget Karlie’s stunning headband. To achieve the perfect au-natural style, volume and colour blending are crucial which is why we recommend our GL Apps – guaranteed to add instant volume and a perfect colour blend too!
