Tousled Braid

Pull off the Cannes look this season with a messy yet amazing braid to become the envy of everyone. You can opt to make a large, loose braid by pulling your hair back or to the side, then secure it at the end. Release the shortest layers that frame your face, and use hairspray to finish. You can bring a touch of glamour to your braid by adding embellishments such as pearls, beads or even ribbons.

Glamorous Pixie

There are many variants of pixie cuts that you can experiment with for your Cannes 2024 look.
