Each year, the Cannes Film Festival excites and inspires fashion and beauty lovers around the world. While film buffs might have their eyes glued to the big screen, our full attentions goes to the glamorous gowns, makeup, and hairstyles of the stars. Among those who walk the festival's red carpet, elegant and elaborate updos are a must! Here are 10 of our favorite looks from previous years...
The XXL updo
What to pair with a fabulous gown? A king size hairstyle! To stand out from the crowd and make sure all eyes are on them, the stars couldn't have found a better option! Worn high up or tucked into the hollow of the neck, the XXL bun is a win-win. Notable high-volume updos include those of Blake Lively, Aishwarya Rai, and Cheryl Fernandez Versini.
Bigs fans of braids love to unleash their creativity during the Festival! To create a romantic, ultra-glamorous look, these ladies don't hesitate to create totally unique shapes and textures with their braids. Personally, we loved the looks of Nicole Kidman and Fan Bingbing .
An oldie but a goodie, a classic low-sitting bun pairs as well with a classic gown as it does a totally off-the-wall one! To add some Cannes Festival glitz to this look, It-girls and icons have added extra texture to their hair and/or accessorized with jewel embellished hair barettes and combs. To get inspired, see the looks of Freida Pinto and Aymalene Valade.
We can't wait to see what this year's festival has in store!
