Whose Cannes hairstyle did you like best?

Barbara Palvin and Lara Stone are two of the latest L'Oréal Paris spokespeople to hit the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and, boy, did they do it in style. Both are models by trade so it wasn't a huge shock to see them rocking the red carpet like nobody's business. The best thing about their respective looks? Their hair, duh!

Victoria's Secret angel Barbara rolled up with a sleek, straight style while industry icon Lara went from pose to pose with perfectly-set waves. The question is, which style do you like best?

No fuss

Barbara's minimalist 'do was the perfect match for her bright white dress, creating a clean, sophisticated look at the Cannes premiere of The Search.

To style: To try this look at home, spray the hair evenly with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray then flat iron. Part your hair slightly off-center with a tail comb and finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray to render a cashmere-soft finish and keep your style frizz-free.

Classic glamour

Lara's pretty waves were a great example of what a great blowout can achieve! Curled but not over-styled, her hair was perfectly laid back next to the high-impact colour of her dress. Balance is everything on the red carpet, folks!

To style: Spray the hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray then blow-dry the hair in several sections using a round brush. Wrap the hair all the way around the brush then glide it slowly through to the ends as you dry. Once curled, roll the section of hair up and clip while you work on the rest. Leave the hair to cool then let down the curls. Brush them through then fix with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

The verdict

Both of these styles are great to have in your repertoire, it just comes down to how you want your hair to work with your outfit and/or whatever style you feel most comfortable with. Waves tend to be more forgiving but a straight style can be just as pretty.
