While the stars gathered for the films, we couldn't help but notice the hair

With the Cannes Film Festival, a healthy dose of glamour is practically a prerequisite. And no starlet worth her salt would pass up the chance to make a big impact on the sweeping steps of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès. We round up five different looks that are red-carpet-worthy in their own way.

Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss wears her hair in relaxed, soft waves that frame her face. The fuss-free hairstyle puts the glossiness and health of her tresses in focus.

Bar Refaeli

Bar Refaeli goes for a casual yet elegant look with a tousled ponytail, bringing a touch of refinement to beachy waves.

Fan Bingbing

A chic updo never looks out of place for an occasion like this. Plaits wrapped around the chignon introduce texture to a hairstyle that could otherwise come across as flat and a tad conservative.

Lupita Nyong'o

When you've got it, flaunt it. We're still referring to the hair. Lupita Nyong'o's tight comb-back only serves to accentuate the volume of her locks and bring focus to her features.

Viann Zhang

We're not going to lie — we wish we could take hair inspiration from a young Chinese boy and appropriate it this well. Viann Zhang's bold, straight brows and statement 'do is certainly memorable.
