The Cannes Red Carpet Is All About Hair


After this year’s Met Gala, we thought celebrities would take a much-needed summer breather before churning out more iconic red carpet looks. Yet, here we are again, just a few weeks later at the Cannes Film Festival.

 

We already know Cannes is filled with celeb after celeb doing the most with their attire, but let’s take a brief moment to go skin-deep. While the beauty tends to be more minimal, there have been quite a surprises (cc: Helen Mirren’s pale pink hair, Deepika Padukone’s leveled-up ponytail, and Elle Fanning’s everything). Though we still have a full week left before the event comes to an end, take a moment to revel in some of the best beauty looks the French Riviera has to offer below.
