Angelina Jolie's Hair at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Angelina Jolie Pull Off a One-Sided, Half-Up Hairdo?

So far we've seen two beauty looks from Angelina Jolie at the Cannes Film Festival. The first was yesterday morning at the Kung Fu Panda photo call when she arrived wearing minimal makeup and her hair styled with one side half-up and half-down.

The second was last night at the Kung Fu Panda movie premiere. Her makeup was more defined and her hair was flowing long and loose. Both looks are beautiful on the glowing, growing star, yet I took a pregnant pause at the somewhat matronly, late '70s-inspired, one-sided style. Do you like this look on Angelina?

I think she can pull it off, she looks great with either style. I also love that hair color on her, and her hair is naturally straight, but she loves the soft wave look which is pretty. But her hair is pretty straight in these photos except the little wave at the bottom.

Angelina Jolie beautiful no matter what even when she was young she was pretty. Speaking of a young Angelina Jolie did anyone see Skye Marie, the young 13 year old writer of (How To Talk To Teens) she looks exactly like Angelina Jolie when she was 11 years old and its weird she even wore her hair like Angelina, obviously it was a co-incidents but many its like watching Angelina Jolie all over again Hollywood will be all over this soon.

Angelina looks absolutely gorgeous with that hairstyle, and I just want to say, it makes me laugh how even the haters of Angie have to give it up to the woman! That's right haters, congratulate, don't hate. And don't it just make you all mad that Angie's just as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the outside? HA!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the green dress. I don't see the half up thing as dated, now if she was using a banana clip...

Her smile does look kinda scary in the first pic, and in the second pic she's smiling so hard it looks like a blood vessel is going to pop in her forehead. Not crazy about any of the hairstyles, but i love the green dress.

Yep, think it suits her fine. I think this look is fine on anyone that has the right hair and overall look for it. It allows the shape of the face and neck to be shown somewhat, without being too formal, and that can be very flattering. Its also easy as heck to do, but I think you have to have enough hair volume to make it work... If you have shorter hair and curl it for a retro feel, its also cute. Again, I think it comes down to volume...if you don't have it, pulling one side back and leaving the other down can make it look like half your head is shaved. :P

I thought the "half up/half down" was due to putting the hair behind your ear because it was getting in your way! I had no idea it was considered a style?!?!?! And yes, she does look good with it down-this coming from another NON-Fan.

Now, she always looks great! I did not like her old vampire look. As for the hair, I do prefer her hair down, but the half-up look looks good to. She looks great pregnant, but I bet her body must feel so heavy. I would understand if she had a forced smile and want to go home. But she seemed very giggly at the interview so maybe she was really happy to be there?

She looks better with it half pulled back. She gives me a Morticia Adams feel when her hair's down - too dark and too much.

I do my hair like that all the time, I had no idea I was doing a seventies inspired "matronly" thing with my hair. Now I feel silly, perhaps I've been acting like nineteen years old is the new fifty without even knowing it! I think she looks beautiful though, and I will keep doing my hair like this no matter what. :)

I think it looks fine, I honestly wouldn't have noticed her hair was half-up. I agree that her hair lately is looking lackluster. In close-up pictures, it looks very one-dimensional and bland.

I like it. I think it looks casual and relaxed.

Let's face it, she could be bald as an egg, and still look gorgeous.

I think she looks good with both. I didn't know the half up half down was dated. As a matter of fact, I think I saw in one of the recent glossies step by step instructions on how to achieve the look.

I think it's pretty interesting how some looks become "dated" a few decades later and others become "retro", "vintage", or "classic". Personally, I would call the left hairstyle "classic" because it's sweet, attractive, and simple. Not like it's a topknot!

Angelina has looked the best she has ever looked. She would be EVEN BETTER if she'd get those ridiculous tattoos removed.
