Already since 1946 the International Film Festival belongs to the most important events of the year and as always one elegant look chased the next also in the last week. The gorgeous outfits worn by stars from Hollywood and around the world get almost as much attention as the films themselves, and not without reason. If there’s one thing all fashion girls can agree on, it’s that a beautiful hairstyle is just as important as our outfit. From flippy lob to micro braids and buzz cut, in this article we’ve filtered out for you the latest summer hair trends inspired by the looks at the Cannes Film Festival 2021!

Whether it’s for a formal event or at the beach, the good old ponytail is a timeless classic for a simple yet elegant hairstyle that can be worn for any occasion. After the high braid dominated the fashion world for a long time, this year the low ponytail is making a comeback, making it one of the most popular summer hair trends for 2021. Actress Jessica Chastain’s extremely stylish hairstyle at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 proves that the low ponytail always looks classy and graceful. And the most beautiful thing? The styling takes less than 5 minutes, but provides an elegant look all day long. Women with thin and fine hair can add fullness to their hair with a few gentle waves.

Wet hair look is the trend hairstyle of the summer

The wet hair look was among the most popular hairstyles of the stars at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 and we are not surprised. The glossy hairstyle looks a bit like we just stepped out of the shower and exudes pure glamour. However, this year the trend hairstyle is no longer worn ultra sleek, but rather casual. It is important that the hair is combed back only loosely and slightly stringy. The hairstyle was already totally hip in the 80s and conjures up very uncomplicated and super fast freshness in any styling. To get the wet look, you simply need to massage a small portion of hair gel into your mane with your fingers and then comb through well with a coarse comb. Then, shape the hair into the desired form and voila – you have the chic look from the Cannes Film Festival 2021!

Braided Tendrils are the playful summer hair trend

The playful hairstyle is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful summer hair trends inspired by Cannes Film Festival 2021. Italian fashion influencer Chiara Ferragni opted for the cute braids, creating a real hype in the fashion world. It is quite simply two braided strands that gently frame the face and the look reminds us of the then typical hairstyles of the Spice Girls from the 90s. Best of all, Braided Tendrils don’t look super cute and girly, they’re also extremely easy to style up and are perfect for any hair length.
