The glitziest, most glamorous red carpet events of all require similarly glamorous hairstyles, and the Cannes Film Festival is about at glitzy as it gets! At this year's festival, L'Oréal Paris spokesperson and model Natasha Poly was spotted with some seriously glitzy A-list waves. Paired with a sparkling gown and bright red lips, it was the ultimate screen siren look!

A classic red carpet hairstyle

Timeless Hollywood 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 the South of France, it isn't difficult 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.

Your new hairstyle mantra: your hair should be as glamorous as you want, whenever you want!

Styling tips

Make your curls last
When each piece of hair comes off the curling iron, clip it up to cool. This will set your strands into long-lasting curls that won't fall flat after just a few hours.

Stay flyaway free
To prevent frizz and flyaways from ruining your wavy hairstyle, make sure you complete the look with plenty of high shine finishing spray. This will seal your hair against humidiity and tack down any existing flyaways.
