Jourdan Dunn’s pixie crop

When Jourdan Dunn stepped out onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival recently, she was rocking flowing curls. But gone are those lengthy locks, as she switched up her style in favour of a cute and feminine pixie cut at last night’s awards ceremony!

Jourdan’s new short, textured pixie cut looked oh-so-elegant, with the blonde highlights helping to add dimension to the cropped look. Yet another incredible ‘do from the British model!

Alesha Dixon’s chic top knot

Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon certainly didn’t disappoint at the event, wearing her hair in a glamorous, twisted top knot for the evening extraveganza.

With intricate braided twists along her scalp and a sky-high messy bun, this style allowed her to really show off her glitzy sequin-embroidered ensemble!

Holly Willoughby’s boho braided updo

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby always looks fab, but we’re sure you’ll agree she looked a real vision with her floor-length floral gown and romantic French braided updo.

Editor’s tip: If you’re as besotted with Holly’s look as we are, and want to try recreating her ‘do yourself, don’t forget to prep your hair before styling. We suggest using a texturising spray, such as the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray, to give your hair extra grip and make it easier for you to create your braids.

Madison Beer’s leather-clad high ponytail

In contrast to Holly’s sweet floral style, American singer Madison Beer took a much tougher approach with her look. The 18-year-old paired her striking, structured dress with a high-impact high-ponytail, adding a black PVC hair ribbon to tie the whole look together.

Raye’s candyfloss pink ‘fro

British singer/songwriter Rachel Keen (AKA Raye) is known for her golden afro which we love BTW! However, last night saw her give her ‘do a summertime twist, opting to dye her natural haircandyfloss hue to coordinate with her Barbie pink eye make-up. The more pink the better, we say!
