Resplendent in a baby-pink gown (not, I repeat, not anything to do with Barbiecore), Scarlett Johansson walked the Cannes red carpet on Tuesday with a haircut almost dazzling enough to rival her smile.
The blonde lob—which grazed the tops of her shoulders—was cut bluntly and styled with gentle bends through the mid-lengths. The kinked style looked almost as though Johansson had tied her slightly damp hair up into a ponytail, then let it down before the event, creating an effortless (yet still wholly polished) finish. Consider it an easy trick to try at home.
A one-length lob like Johansson’s is super flattering on most face shapes. It’s long enough to lengthen rounder faces, and short and shapely enough to add dimension to slimmer ones. Summertime calls for easy air-dry cuts, and this is the perfect example of a style that can be left to its own devices and still look good. Plus, it can be worn forward or pulled back behind the ears, as Johansson demonstrated in Cannes.
Easily dressed up—with red lipstick, a flushed cheek and defined eyes—or worn beachy and mussed-up, Scarlett Johansson is definitely onto something.
