The films were rich and varied at the Venice Film Festival this year. But the hair remained decidedly one sided. Whether in a ponytail like young actress Emilia Jones or with a deep side part like Amy Adams, baring the nape of ones neck was very much in trend. Want to signal casual yet pure elegance? Try textured curls or waves worn to one side, and the other side pinned back, like Belgian actress Cecile de France, British starlet Gemma Arterton and Italian thespian Valeria Solarino. Even with this one look, there were interesting variations. de France's refined curls looked polished, while Arterton's more sculpted style gave hers the look of a faux bob. Meanwhile Solarino's messier style gave her 'do a more asymmetrical look. And if you choose to bare just one ear as some of these women have done — why not highlight this with a single, statement earring?
