The Cannes Film Festival has as many stunning looks as any Hollywood red carpet. Cannes 2015 has just started but we’ve already seen gorgeous dresses in every color of the rainbow and some very strong double-sided tape in action. The red carpet isn’t just filled with exquisite couture and flawless beauty looks. Russian TV star Elena Lenina wasn’t going to settle for a basic look. She showed up on the Cannes red carpet with two different crazy hairstyles made up of about ten feet of hair extensions each.
At the Irrational Man premiere she had two basketball-sized buns perched on top of her head. Since that isn’t enough of a statement, she also crimped sections of her hair. If you thought doughnut buns were large, they look microscopic compared to this. Her hair is totally WTF but at the same time you can’t help being impressed with how strong Elena’s neck muscles must be to withstand 15 lbs of hair extensions. She definitely takes the “Go big or go home” motto seriously. Take a look at the crazy hairstyle from the side:
Ouch. Your scalp and neck probably hurt just from looking and the photos. And then there is more. Elena also attended the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere and styled her hair in a Coneheads-inspired updo. Her hair was crimped and twisted around in some sort of cyclone-meets-beehive hairstyle. I hope she sat in the back row because no one wants to go to a movie and have this blocking their view:
Good luck seeing anything behind that. Her hair is so tall that I wouldn’t be surprised if it requires planning permission. And just think of the knots when you’re trying to take this thing out afterwards. She probably has enough hairdressers to make up a soccer team. There’s still over a week of the film festival left so expect to see more crazy hairstyles from Elena.
