Swept back or slicked back, flawless locks are glistening everywhere on the Cannes red carpets.

Wet-looking, swept back hair has been trending for years now and judging by the 71st Cannes Film Festival, it isn’t disappearing anytime soon. Aside from making the wearer look like they just popped out of the pool or emerged from a swim in the ocean, the technique makes any hair type ultra manageable. So it should come as no surprise that it’s an enduring celebrity favorite.

Marion Cotillard and Kristen Stewart are among the stars who have put an extra relaxed spin on the look, this year.

With not a single hair out of place, Bella Hadid, Jennifer Connelly, and more have pulled their tresses back into smooth, glossy pony tails.

Razor sharp center parts are also popular. Thandie Newton set her sleek strands in a flawless deep side part and added a tropical twist in flower-decorated Valentino Fall 2018. — jas
