The most glamorous red carpet events require the most glamorous hairstyles, and the Cannes Film Festival is about as glam as it gets after the Oscars and the Met Gala. Over the weekend, L'Oréal Paris spokesperson and model Natasha Poly was spotted in the South of France with some seriously glitzy A-list waves. Teamed with a sparkling gold dress and bright red lips, it was the ultimate screen siren look!
A timeless hairstyle
Classic sideswept waves can be found on just about every red carpet today, a trend which has endured for almost a century with advocates including Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe and, more recently, Blake Lively. Just looking at how beautiful Natasha's hair was in Cannes, it's easy to see why this is the case.
Polished, sideswept waves look incredible on every face shape, adding volume and movement to the hair while framing the eyes and lips perfectly. For daytime wear, this hairstyle can also be pared down with a natural beauty look and casual or workday attire.
Motto of the day: your hair should be as glamorous as you want, whenever you want!
