Dame Helen Mirren

Cannes may be an important film festival, but if offers so much more than that, like being one of the leading beauty events of the year. And all the recent red carpet sightings graced us with lots of on-theme hair for the summer season.

For many, summer is about bombshell waves and natural-looking highlights. If you’re gunning for a glam but breezy look, there’s nothing like easy beach or Hollywood waves, full-bodied curls and ombré or balayage highlights. Stars like Taylor Hill, Marion Cotillard and Margot Robbie showed how they can best be done. Then there’s Helen Mirren and Delphine Wespiser showing us how rose gold and burgundy are the cool girl shades to wear this summer.

French actress Lea Seydoux looked super cute with her mussed-up centre-parted lob, and those free waves added texture.

Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha isn't afraid of anything edgy, like these slicked back vintage finger wave curls with some glitter sprinkled on top.

For Margot Robbie’s Cannes debut, we couldn’t get over seeing Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio together on the red carpet. Oh, yes, we also loved the Australian actress’s beachy layered waves and hand-painted highlights with a soft and natural gradation of lightness towards the ends.

Candy chic hair doesn't just have to be for millennials, as British actress Dame Helen Mirren proved when steeping out in temporary rose gold coloured hair, styled in a smoothly slicked back manner.

American top model Taylor Hill gave a masterclass in ultimate beach hair with these effortless and beautiful big, voluminous curls. Who else has started looking for their paddle brush?

Long brunette tresses look so attractive in retro loose waves, as Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas helped us discover. Another tip we got from her is that side sweeping the hair over one shoulder allows us to showcase those statement earrings.
