Hairstyles shine at socially distanced Venice Film Festival

While there were face masks aplenty at the recent socially distanced Venice Film Festival, red carpet hair did not disappoint.

With all other major international film festivals cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was wonderful to see the Venice Film Festival go ahead. There may have been fewer attendees than usual and lots of physical distance between them, but there was a satisfying dollop of the glitz and glam normally associated with a festival regarded as one of the four major events on the annual film festival calendar.

One of the most striking hairstyles was worn by Italian actress, Matilde Gioli. Her long hair was sectioned in the middle and plaited into a Dutch braid going all the way down her back, resulting in an almost Mohican effect.

Game of Thrones actress, Nathalie Emmanuel, sported her natural hair in a high ponytail, coming off a side parting and adorned with clips.

British actress, Tilda Swinton, is known for her signature short back & sides crop. At the premiere of ‘The Human Voice’, her vibrant orange hair was swept up into a high pompadour.

Senegalese model, Maty Fall Diba, had her natural hair pulled back off her face to accentuate her beautiful bone structure and features.

Dutch actress, Lotte Verbeek, sported an old-school Hollywood glam look; her long auburn hair was swept over one shoulder in soft waves.

American actress, Taylor Hill, rocked the wet-look trend, with her shoulder-length locks brushed off her face and behind her ears. Also going with the wet-look trend was Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana in the new season of ‘The Crown’. Unlike Hill, Corrin’s hair was bob length and flipped outwards at the ends.

Vanessa Kirby, who rose to fame for playing Princess Margaret in ‘The Crown’, wore her highlighted blonde hair in a very simple but effective half ponytail.

Oscar-winning actress, Cate Blanchett, who was Jury President at the festival, had her longish blonde bob done in a few different styles during the festival, but mostly loose and tucked behind the ears. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz and Natasha Chisese)
