In a world where hair is being attacked from all angles into short crops, one star dares to say "long hair, don't care." Introducing Blake Lively's most epic braid of all time, courtesy of the Cannes 2014 film festival red carpet kick-off. But Blake is just the beginning of the hair inspiration, mostly found before the Grace Of Monaco premier (hosted by Opening Ceremony). There's also Nicole, Sofia, Karlie and more who have plenty of easy, off-the-neck looks that would add a lot of variety to summer style—even without the floor-length gowns and badass diamonds. And if you need more, more, more take a gander at our "Summer Hair Inspiration" board on Pinterest for other ideas.
