Yesterday was only the first day of Cannes 2014, but after seeing Adele Exarchopolous, Nicole Kidman, and Blake Lively walk the red carpet at the Grace of Monaco premiere, we think it's safe to say tousled braids are an official trend of this year's festival!
It's not so surprising, considering how hugely popular both braids and tousled updos have been over the last few years... really it was only a matter of time before some creative stylists decided to combine the two!
A closer look...
Adele: 20-year old Adele Exarchopolous was a big winner at last years Cannes festival, becoming the youngest artist ever to receive the Palme d'Or prize. This year she hit the red carpet with every bit of glitz and glamour you'd expect.
Adele's hair was styled with a side part and then loosely swept back and formed into a thick, tousled braid that draped elegantly over her shoulder.
Nicole: The star of the evening was undoubtedly Nicole Kidman, who played the lead role in Grace of Monaco. The Aussie actress went for a super on-trend fishtail braid with wisps of hair that fell loose for a soft and ethereal effect.
Nicole's hair featured a vintage-inspired rolled section that wrapped around to the other side and then joined the rest of her hair to create a loose fishtail.
Blake: Blake is a huge fan of the high ponytail and this time around she managed to combine a tousled braid with it! The look was modern, sophisticated, and very her! We love the combination of a super sleek look with a more romantic, loose one.
Blake's hair was smoothed back flat and then secured into a high ponytail, with a small section of hair wrapping around the base to conceal the elastic. Then, the ends of the hair were styled into a loose, textured braid.
Bravo, ladies! We love the looks!
