Get the Look: Nicole Kidman’s Faux Bob from Red Carpet Cannes Hairstyle

Hmm, not sure about Nicole Kidman’s very stiff pinned faux bob hairstyle she wore at the Cannes film festival. She of course looks gorgeous anyway, but still….we think it should’ve been loosened up a little with some more curls and perhaps loose pieces (like Rachel Bilson, see below).

Plus, all the spray and gel necessary for this updo really left her hair looking like a flat shell instead of shiny (which is anyway a problem for those of us with blonde hair, it rarely reflects enough light). What do you think? And of course, if you want to get the look yourself, here’s how you can get this cool jetsons up-do yourself!

Celebrity Long Hair Up-Dos You Can Do Too!

ponytail and braid

 

We love these two up-do’s worn by Selena Gomez and Bella Thorne on the MTV red carpet, and they are perfect for different face shapes.

First, Selena’s long inside out braid was perfect for her heart shaped face and smaller features because of the poof at the front of her hairline. This elongated her face, making her look taller and thinner (not that she needs it, but still, for the rest of us). It’s also an instant face-lift since the sides really need to be swept up high and tight for this braid.

It’s cool since the braid is on the outside, so you can see more of the detail. Love it!

Bella’s up-do added more flair to just your regular ponytail. It also was a way to glam up bangs – blow them out straight so they have a little more body, rather than sweeping them to the side.
