Last night, the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival kicked off with the premiere of The Magnificent Seven, followed by Ben Wheatley's Free Fire, starring Oscar winning actress, Brie Larson. The diverse cast of notable actors and actresses to hit the red carpet for the screening of Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven included names like Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington, Lee Byung-hun, Hayley Bennett, and member of the TIFF Platform Jury, Zhang Ziyi.
Meanwhile, the cast of Ben Wheatley's Free Fire stepped out on to the red carpet for the screening of their new film late last night, including names like Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, and more. Actress Elizabeth Chambers also attended the premiere, adding to the TIFF 2016 red carpet hair trend we spotted among actresses so far: the up-do.
While Brie Larson and Hayley Bennett adopted the complicated braided bun effect, Elizabeth Chambers and Zhang Ziyi went for a more classic approach to the up-do. So, if you're in need of a little hair inspiration for fall 2016, check out the 3 different ways you can wear an up-do this season, inspired by TIFF 2016!
TIFF 2016 HAIR TREND: THE UP-DO
THE TWISTED BUN
For her red carpet appearance at the premiere of her new film Free Fire, Oscar winning actress Brie Larson wore her hair in a low, twisted bun that allowed her eye-catching dress to steal the spotlight. She parted her in a deep side part and used product to create a sleek, no fly-away look. We love how the hair in her bun is twisted around itself, giving off the appearance of a complicated braid.
This sleek look is perfect for an evening out, and can also be worn to simply keep hair out of the way when the weather is hot (or when you're hitting the gym!). Just remember to use a lot of hairspray or mousse to keep fly-aways, away!
THE EXTRA LARGE BRAIDED BUN
Just when you thought Brie Larson's twisted bun was complicated enough, Hayley Bennett stepped out onto the red carpet wearing an extra large braid that had been maneuvered into a crown-like shape at the back of her head – the look was one fit for a Queen! She left a few strands of hair loose around her face for a more easygoing look.
Need to look like a princess for the night? Start off by sectioning your hair off into two sections (one at the back, one at the front), leaving a few loose pieces of hair around your face. Next, part the back section down the middle, then begin French braiding a thin strand on one side of your middle part. Repeat on the other side and connect the two braids at the back of your head.
Next, use the remaining hair at the back of your head to create one thick, classic braid, then maneuver it into a crown-like shape at the back of your head. Secure with bobby pins and don't forget to use hairspray!
THE CLASSIC UP-DO
Feeling a style that's a little less complicated? Look to Elizabeth Chambers and Zhang Ziyi for inspiration! While Elizabeth opted for a simple tousled bun that sat in the middle of her head, Zhang went with a more put-together style that sat tightly wounded at the crown of her head.
