Being a model, Cara Delevingne is no stranger to switching up her look at short notice, and with every change Miss Delevingne proves that she’s capable of working virtually any look, from rock ‘n’ roll diva to edgy tomboy, from glamorous old Hollywood starlet to sex kitten, and everything in between.
Our favourite look of hers though? What else – it has to be this stunning set of sleek and sophisticated retro curls well and truly rocked by Miss Delevingne for her Yves Saint Laurent campaign:
Apparently we aren’t alone – Cara herself clearly liked this look so much that she ended up working variants on the style after shooting the campaign.
We can’t get enough of this relaxed spin on the look – it is simply unfair for anybody to look this good when they’re this windswept:
As much as we love this look, it isn’t for everyone, so in the spirit of goodwill we thought we’d share some of our favourite Cara looks with you along with how to achieve them. We’re nice like that.
Naturally, Cara Delevingne is the queen of festival-ready hippie chick waves, but her mastery of festival headwear takes her hair hero-status up a notch. We love this Navajo-inspired woven headband and think it will be equally winter friendly when the weather begins to turn.
This bold crop is one for the daring among us – of course, the uber-hacked mini bangs look great on Miss Delevingne, but they’re not for the faint-hearted. We love the multi-tonal layers in this style and reckon Cara rocks it with enough laid back nonchalance to make the whole look come together.
Ugh! She looks great with curls too? We love this soft ‘70s ‘do – the best way to achieve this look is with a medium barrelled set of curling tongs. This look is all about movement and texture so create tight curls in multiple directions throughout the length of your hair with your tongs first. Once you’ve done that, brush out the curls for a more natural look and secure in place with a seal of hairspray.
The Soft Up-Do
Miss Delevingne is blessed with super fine tresses, which means that this up-do is naturally soft and light. If you’ve got hair on the thicker side then emphasise the flyaways in the ‘do to relieve the bun of some of its potential weight and volume.
This look is meant to be moderately messy, so put your hair through the straightening irons and then let it do its thing – once it’s straight, this style should look as natural as possible and over-styling it will stop it from feeling natural.
Have we missed any classic Cara looks out? Which of these is your favourite? Are you as mad about those ‘40s curls as we are?
