It's been a vintage year for beauty at the Cannes film festival so we've picked our four fave hair looks, all perfect for you to try out this weekend. From model Natasha Poly's sexy tousled plait to Kirsten Dunst's super cute braids there's something for you no matter what you're up to!
You can make this as easy or as complicated as you like- anything from a clip in fake braid to a basic pinned plait or a more tricky French plait would work. For a super pretty twist you could even weave fake flowers, perfect if you’re a bridesmaid this summer.
Unless you’ve got a friend to help you and you’re confident with tricky styles this might be one that needs a visit to the hairdryer but if you’re a dab hand with tongs give it a go. Using a medium barrelled tong, curl your whole had of hair, getting it quite close to the roots for an extra bit of lift. Section your hair into three, leaving the bulk in a pony tail at the nape of your neck and two smaller strands either side. Twist the side strands loosely, pinning as you you, stop when you get to the ponytail and add them to that. Then twist that whole new section into a tousled bun (if you have thinner hair you could use a doughnut). Finish with light hold hairspray.
Unless you’ve got a mane chances are you’re going to have to fake a bun of such gargantuan proportions. Find good value clip in buns at www.beautyworks.com. For an extra touch of glitz pin an old necklace around the join.
Start with freshly washed hair and a volumising mousse, rough dry , getting as much movement into the roots as possible. Backcomb at the roots before collecting hair into a side ponytail just below your ear. Then do a basic plait if you’re (like us) a bit clumsy or attempt a fishtail – to do this divide hair into two sections and then pull a thin strand of hair from the outside of the first section. Pull this strand over the first section, and add it under the second section on the other side. In other words, the strand of hair has gone over the first section and finishes under the second section.Repeat on the other side, alternating til you get to the end of your hair then secure with a band.
