Hairstylist on how you can recreate Margot Robbie hair looks

Margot Robbie is one of Australia’s biggest stars right now as her career continues to go from strength to strength.

The Queensland-born beauty is also killing it in the hairstyle stakes at each red carpet appearance she makes.

Throughout awards season and the press tours for movies like I, Tonya and Peter Rabbit, Margot has worn her hair in a multitude of ways.

Now Australian celebrity hairstylist, Joey Scandizzo, has shared with FEMAIL how you can recreate some of her looks with ease.

1. COOL-GIRL COMBOVER

At the I, Tonya UK premiere, Margot was seen wearing her blonde locks in a side swept style.

‘Only Margot Robbie could bring back the comb-over and make it a must-try style,’ Joey explained. 

This sleek and chic look is the hot red carpet hair trend, but the trick for pulling it off in real life is managing to keep your hair full of volume.

Joey told FEMAIL that all you need to do is apply a treatment before using a texturising spray. 

Next, take the front headband section of hair from ear to ear and blow-dry across, over the crown.

Finally, apply a styling cream and a holding hairspray to ensure it’s kept in place.

2. THE HALF-UP BUN  

When attending the 2018 photo call for the movie adaption of Peter Rabbit, Margot wore her hair in a flattering half-up half-down top knot.

‘Margot’s bun is the perfect style for day two hair, but you can cheat that texture with the right products,’ Joey said.

To recreate the look, you need to prepare your hair with a treatment and apply dry shampoo for texture and volume.

‘Using your fingers, gather the front section of hair, creating a bun at the crown of the head. Secure and let pieces fall naturally from the sides,’ Joey instructed.

3. TWO LOW SPACE BUNS

A couple of years ago we saw the emergence of space buns as the go-to festival-look. 

Recently this look has been slightly re-imagined. Instead of sitting on top of the head, it’s now moved to the nape of the neck.

According to Pinterest, search volume for this hairstyle is up 170 per cent and Margot herself wore this soft look to the 2018 premiere of Peter Rabbit in California.

‘Prep with Miracle Hair Treatment, apply with a sea salt texture spray and blast dry,’ Joey said.

‘Create soft bends through the front sections, working from mid-lengths for texture instead of volume.’

Then split the hair into two pigtail sections before creating two low buns at the nape of the neck. As always, use a holding spray to keep it in place.

4. MODERN FINGER WAVE 

At the 90th Annual Academy Awards this year the Australian beauty showcased a short and wavy style. 

‘Margot had a fresh haircut right before hitting this red carpet, but if you don’t have time for a chop you can copy her look by focusing on making your ends as polished as possible,’ Joey explained.

‘Apply sea salt texture spray to freshly washed hair and blast dry in, using it as a setting lotion.

‘Work a straightening iron through small sections, swivelling it back and forth as you go down to create S-bends.’

Once the waves have cooled, spray a holding hairspray before brushing waves into place, connecting the S-bend across all sections.

5. RETRO-STYLE WITH ENDS CURLED INWARDS 

At the 2017 Los Angeles premiere of I, Tonya Margot wore a sleek and straight look with a twist. 

‘Smooth and tucked under at the ends, Margot’s bob is reminiscent of Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface,’ Joey shared. 

‘Using a large round brush, blow dry the hair smooth, tucking ends underneath as you go,’ he said.

‘Spray a hairspray and fight fly-aways by spritzing your brush with a hairspray and running over the finished look.’ 

6. SLEEK AND STRAIGHT

Earlier this year Margot Robbie attended the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards with a classic hairstyle on show.

The cut made her hair look shiny and healthy and her strands being tucked behind her ears showed of her amazing bone structure. 

Don’t worry if you’re concerned about damaging your hair by straightening as a heat protectant spray will help counteract this.

7. HIGH PONYTAIL 

Margot had her hair styled in a high ponytail in 2016 when she attended the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot world premiere in New York.

‘The actress shows us how a high ponytail adds a fun, casual vibe to any look,’ Joey said.

The great thing about this look is that it is achievable, even for hair novices.

To achieve this style, simply spray a texture spray and blow dry your hair to keep it in before separating the hair into two horizontal sections.

‘Secure the top section into a ponytail at the crown of the head,’ he explained.

‘Gather the bottom section, securing into a second ponytail directly below the first. Creating two ponytails keeps it tight and helps avoid sagging underneath.

‘Take a section of hair and wrap around the base of both ponytails, hiding the hair elastics.’

8. LAID BACK WAVES  

‘Margot has created a cool contrast by pairing a glamorous gold dress with lived-in, boho texture,’ Joey said of Margot’s look at the 88th Annual Academy Awards in 2016.

To create the soft texture one would have to spray their locks with a sea salt texture spray and blast it dry. 

‘Using a large curling iron curl two-inch-wide sections from mid-lengths to ends and leave ends out for a more natural look,’ he explained.

‘Apply frizz control shaping cream to create definition without adding weight.’ 

9. RELAXED BED HAIR 

Messy waves can occasionally be difficult to recreate. Although this style is described as ‘effortless’, it can take a certain amount of time and know-how.

For the special screening of the film Focus in 2015 Margot had messy locks.

‘What keeps this blow dry from looking too ”done” is the relaxed, lived-in texture,’ Joey said. 

All you have to do is apply a texture spray and dry your hair with a hairdryer.

Then finish it off with a dry powder volume paste to create that relaxed, day two texture.

10. FLIPPED ENDS 

At the Australian Peter Rabbit premiere this year Margot revived a vintage hair trend – flipped ends. 

Variations date back all the way to the ‘bubble flip’ in the ’60s and Farrah Fawcett’s infamous waves in the ’70s.

This look is simple as all it involves is a hair straightener and hair gel to make it look slick and in place.
