NATALIE PORTMAN IN JACKIE
If any style is iconic this year, it’s from Natalie Portman’s turn as Jackie Kennedy. Her impeccable, short bob cut is pure 1960s elegance, the symbol of an entire generation.

OCTAVIA SPENCER IN HIDDEN FIGURES
The film’s hairstyles, which you can also see onscreen on the head of singer/actress Janelle Monáe, faithfully represent the elegant and supremely feminine aesthetic that was popular in the 1960s.

RUTH NEGGA IN LOVING
Back again in the heart of the 1950s and ’60s, this style is made up of a timeless and elegant structured low bun with a side parting and notched fringe that falls gently over the forehead.

ISABELLE HUPPERT IN ELLE
The French actress is styled with a long bob and an impeccable blow-dry: the perfect representation of her character’s entrepreneurial skills and sophistication. Huppert’s elegance is doubly striking thanks to the luminous, red shade of her hair.

EMMA STONE IN LA LA LAND
This year red hair will be centre stage on the red carpet. With a side parting and waves that fall delicately to the shoulders, this retro style is one of the hallmarks of American musical comedies.

MICHELLE WILLIAMS IN MANCHESTER BY THE SEA
In this film, Williams is pure blonde and softness with her short, almost bowl-cut bob that gracefully frames her oval face.

NICOLE KIDMAN IN LION
With her red curly hair, Kidman’s style changes length according to her character’s age. It starts off very short when she’s young, but blossoms into a softer bob style as she gets older.
