Must-Try Film Festival Hairstyles
1. Boxer braid
Sitting on a theater seat can be uncomfortable if your hair’s bulky right at the back of your head. The best way to keep this from happening is to style your hair in a way they fall on the sides. Do this in a charming way by going for boxer braid. Sporty and on the go, this look is perfect for back-to-back premieres and a few walks around the mall in between!
Editor’s tip: Spritz some hairspray on your film festival hairstyle to make it last the entire day. We highly recommend TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray which firmly holds your ‘do in place without making your hair stiff or sticky.
2. Tiny side braids
Adding little details can give your look the accent it needs. A subtle statement, tiny side braids give you an edge at every angle. Style it with big earrings like hoops and you become a chic gal stealing the show!
Editor’s tip: Short hair can be a bit challenging to braid especially if your strands keep on slipping. Add texture and grip to your hair by spritzing TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray before you start braiding.
3. Messy or loose side braid
If you want to go for something laid-back yet still classy, a messy side braid look is the way to go. Pair it with a pair of statement earrings and you’re ready for the gala night!
Editor’s tip: More than a perfect braid, proper nourishment is the best way to make your hair beautiful. Make sure your hair’s ready and healthy for all the pulling and twisting with Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo. It has Biotin to deeply nourish your hair so it gets stronger as it grows longer, letting you nail any hairstyle you want!
4. Bob with a deep side part
With a couple of bobby pins, you can turn simple to chic. A wavy bob with a deep side part is one of the easiest film festival hairstyles to create yet difficult to miss even in a crowd!
5. Half updo with bangs
Your fringe is a statement as it is, so you can go for something simple like a half updo to go with it. Toss in a few waves and you’re charming enough for a date or to walk the red carpet itself.
6. Quirky headband
Want something with more personality? Sport a quirky headband! It’s a smart way to keep your hair off your face while looking adorable.
Editor’s tip: For a long day ahead, you gotta walk the extra mile to make sure your hair stays soft and smooth. Keep a leave-in conditioner like Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream which has Hair Born Actives to make your hair smoother and shinier with just one application.
7. Top knot
Clean and pretty, a top knot will set you free from your worries over your hair. There’s no more checking if your hair’s still okay, and definitely no more fussing about your long hair getting stuck in your seat (it happens).
8. Curly side ponytail
Go to new levels of chicness with a curly side ponytail. In a few simple steps and with a little help of hairspray, you can wear it from your lunch date to the last full show premiere!
9. Wavy high half ponytail
Equal parts preppy and playful, the wavy high half ponytail gives both a fresh and classy look— perfect for both the red carpet and your much-anticipated movie date!
10. Wet look
Preparing for movie gala nights shouldn’t take all the fun out of the evening. Wearing your hair slicked back gives you an easy yet sexy hairstyle that can last all throughout the night.
Editor’s tip: When creating this hairstyle, start by washing your hair with a shampoo that can leave your hair straight and smooth. Use TRESemmé Ultimate Straight & Shine Shampoo and TRESemmé Ultimate Straight & Shine Conditioner to calm frizz and flyaways. This way, nothing can ruin your sleek look!
Even the four walls of a movie house shouldn’t hold you back from looking your best. With these award-winning film festival hairstyles you can easily try, you’re in for a movie night to remember!
