One of our favourite Hollywood faces, the gorgeous French actress Marion Cotillard has been the subject of controversy these past few days, after rumours circulated that an alleged affair with co-star Brad Pitt was the cause of his upcoming divorce. With the characteristic grace and tact that she has shown over the years, the actress put an end to this unflattering gossip with a simple, but powerful statement: “Many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.”
But this is not the only myth that Marion has put an end to with her enviable grace and charm. In light of all this undignified gossip, we’d like to celebrate her for charm and delicate beauty, specifically for bringing back the love for the short hairstyles. Her unapologetic, effortless look reminded us time and time again just how feminine, flattering and versatile a short bob can be. Here are our favourite styles that Marion sported on the red carpet with this signature cut:
For touchable waves, Vetica created a side part, curled Cotillard’s hair away from the face with a 1-inch curling iron, then brushed through the curls with his fingers to relax them. Side-swept waves have long been a glamorous go-to for women with long, flowing hair. Asymmetrical waves make for a high-fashion edge that can otherwise be difficult to achieve on longer locks.
Slick sides and a teased crown created a fashiony faux hawk. To do: Pull side sections taut to the back of the head and bobby-pin in place, letting ends hang. Tease center section for height. Even with this daring, edgy look, Marion manages to look delicate and stylish, which seems to emphasize her feminine features and smile even more.
Showing that thick, naturally wavy hair can look great in short – medium hairstyles, her chic bob frames her face with soft and flattering controlled waves. It’s perfect for naturally curly hair that may be coarse or hard to control, because the sliced layer technique removes unwanted bulk and leaves this trendy, easy-style short bob hairstyle!
For a ’50s-inspired look, Vetica set her hair with pin curls, then brushed it out for a slight wave. Sides were pulled back and pinned behind her ears, underneath other waves. This style evokes the vintage glamour hairstyles Marilyn Monroe wore and has become a contemporary classic for flirty and feminine short hairstyles. The multi-layered haircut, with added curl, shows exactly how to get added volume in fine hair.
