The French Riviera has opened its doors for the 72nd Annual Cannes Film Festival and the glamorous and the influential have descended on the red carpet. This year will mark the debut of Priyanka Chopra Jonas on the red carpet and while we wait for her look to be revealed (we absolutely loved her Met Gala look), Days 1 and 2 have given us some gems.

Red lips ruled the red carpet (we’re looking at you, Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning) but it was the hair that caught our attention this time. Here are the best hair looks from Days 1 and 2.

Amber Heard

Amber Heard walked the red carpet in a slick, low bun, but what set her hair apart was the one-sided twisted wave. This asymmetrical look is so effective and so simple to get!

How to get it: Take a side-partition and twist the hair back and include it in a low bun. Set it with hair spray to hold the height of the twist.

Elle Fanning

Elle Fanning stepped out on to the red carpet in a floral outfit and chose the perfect hair to go with it. Milk maid braids with an abundance of flowers peppered all over, and we were left floored.

How to get it: Centre part your hair and tie it in two pigtails, just like you used to in school. Take each braid and cross it over the crown so it looks like a head band. Pin the ends of the braids at the nape of the neck.  Pin flowers, the more the merrier!

Golshifteh Farahani

Iranian actress, Golshifteh Farahani, rocked a punk look with a faux Mohawk. The brushed out brows, the simple makeup allow the hair to take centre stage.

How to get it: This is a great option when you have a short bob cut and is bored of wearing it the usual way. Take the centre section of your hair and create volume by back combing and using hair spray to hold the height. Use gel to slick back the sides of your hair and make sure it sticks to the scalp.
