Beautiful Lily Jame’s Hairstyles
Lily James here is rocking a sleek bun at a photoshoot. While it’s not usually her go-to, Lily James does appear with a sleek bun often. This is a great hairstyle for any formal events. If you’re planning to wear a backless dress, you should definitely consider this hairstyle. You will have to use some hairstyling product to give that shine abd slick appearance.
Half Up Half Down Hairstyle
I love this hairstyle on Lily James, she looks absolutely cute with this. The half up half down is an easy to do hairstyle that you can do quickly. It’s an effortless hairstyle that pretty much anybody can pull off. You can give soft curls to give a more soft romantic look.
Medium, Wavy Hairstyle
This medium length, wavy hairstyle seems like Lily James’ go-to hairstyle and she definitely looks stunning in it. For this hairstyle, she has styled her hair by parting it in the side and added waves for a soft romantic look. This hairstyle will look good for both formal and casual events and will go with most dresses and outfits.
Although we’ve majorly seen Lily in blonde hues on-screen, her natural hair color is brunette. She’s often spoken about loving her natural color, and in April this year, she went back to her oh-so-gorgeous natural tone and waves.
Her beach selfie not just had everyone wanting a vacation but also admiring her natural hair game.
Make It Work For You: If you have fair skin with cool undertones, a brunette is an excellent choice of hair color. Opt for a lighter brunette shade like golden ash brown or chestnut to give your face an instant bright lift.
A Low Chignon
When it comes to adding class to her look, Lily completely trusts the low chignon. It’s a great look, goes well with every party attire, and is an excellent look if you are trying to grow out your hair or recover from a bad haircut (thanks to the multiple lockdowns from the last two years!). What’s not to like here!
Make It Work For You: A low chignon is a great style if you have a square-shaped face. It helps soften the edges and gives you a messy yet elegant feel.
Start by gathering your hair onto one side and pinning it at the nape of your neck into a side ponytail or a low bun. Remove a couple of strands from the front and let them frame your face.

Retro bangs are having a moment, and the latest celebrity to hop aboard is Lily. She took to Instagram to share a glimpse of her fresh new cut while on a trip to France. We love the chocolate brown natural tones with a wispy and retro fringe.
Make It Work For You: If you have naturally wavy hair, this is a good look for you, as retro bangs need their share of bounce.
‘90s Supermodel Hair
Lily debuted on the Academy Awards red carpet this year in a pink Versace gown and the perfect ‘90s blowout. Perfectly straight hair, teamed with light curls framing her face—the effortless, luxurious style suited the diva to perfection.
In an interview with Byrdie, her hairstylist, Danilo Dixon, revealed that they used the Dyson dryer to create the blowout. “She’s a contemporary beauty, so we wanted to give her an effortless, luxurious style,” the hairstylist shared.
Make It Work For You: If you want to try out the look, start prepping your hair for styling using a serum.
Next, work in small amounts of oil to smoothen your hair. Spray volume enhancer on your roots for added body and lift. Then use your dryer to blowdry your hair.
Pin your hair up in two-inch-wide portions. Apply heat protection and a soothing spray section-by-section.
After your hair is cooled, use velcro rollers to add curls. Remove the pins, give your hair a light brush, spritz some hairspray for texture and added volume, and you are done.
Pulled Back Hair
Once you take your eyes off the red pout, you’ll notice—and admire—the pulled-back hair done to perfection. For her front row appearance at London Fashion Week, Lily opted for a power girl look, and boy, it sure does suit her.
Make It Work For You: This is an excellent power look and goes perfectly well with your Monday morning boardroom meetings.
Lily has always rocked the blonde look, and 2021 was no different. For her role as Pamela Anderson in Pam & Tommy, she ROCKS the curls, the cut, and the color.
Make It Work For You: Blonde hair color is flattering for people with a light complexion and pink undertones. You can opt for lighter blonde highlights to add the perfect accent to your overall look.
Earlier this month, the Emmy-nominated actor surprised her fans with her new look for Versace’s Fall 2022 campaign: a gothic makeover.
Dressed in head-to-toe monotone, what caught our attention was the bluntly cut jet-black hair. If this isn’t the perfect haircut for this season, we don’t know what is!
Make It Work For You: Black is a great color for people with warmer complexions.
Lily’s blunt bob in 2019 was a much-talked-about transformation. Going from princess wavy tresses to a cool-girl cut only added to her overall charm.
The best part was the versatility: you can go from a straight blunt look for work to wavy curls for party in a matter of minutes.
Make It Work For You: A blunt bob and an oval face shape make for the best combination.
The Classic Bun
Lily’s on-screen Cinderella made way for multiple red carpet appearances with a princess gown and a classic bun.
We’ve got to admit that we loved each one of them. This messy updo with bangs framing the side of her face is a true win!
Make It Work For You: High buns are great for people with an oval-shaped face as it accentuates your cheekbones to perfection.
While there are multiple types of buns, to recreate Lily’s look, you need to go in for a slightly messy updo.
Pull your hair back (without using a brush), let out a few strands to frame your face, and then pin your hair.
Ask any hairstylist, and they’ll agree that you can never go wrong with a ponytail. Continuing her ‘black hair, don’t care’ vibe courtesy of her Versace shoot, Lily owns the floor here.
Make It Work For You: A ponytail is an excellent look for pretty much everything. Be it a boardroom meeting, a brunch date with the girls, or a night out with your date, it always works.
Plus, it’s a great style for when you haven’t washed your hair and need to look put together. Win-win!
In 2019, Lily dropped the long blonde ringlets and went for a glossy blunt lob in a rich, warm ombré brown hue that looked like the perfect choice for December.
Make It Work For You: Ombre is a color that works for everyone. Choose deep reds, coppers, or bronze ombre for darker skin tones.
For a medium skin tone, go in for rich browns, toffee, and copper tones. You need ash tones, lighter blonde shades, and golden caramel hues for a lighter complexion.
At this point, it is safe to call Lily a hair color chameleon. The transition to a rich chocolate brunette wins her 10 points. Plus a special mention to the side-parted, high-gloss Hollywood waves.
Make It Work For You: Glam waves can work for your hair, irrespective of the texture. Work some serum into your damp hair, then divide your tresses into four sections.
Start at the front, curl your hair and then pin it upwards. For the back, curl your hair and let it fall directly.
When your curls are cool, remove the clips and brush your hair through. Apply some hairspray, and you are done.
Lily’s long, slicked-back hairstyle at the 2022 Met Gala gave her the perfect queen vibes and made heads turn. Trust us, you can never go wrong with this sexy, classic style.
The slicked-back hairstyle is easy to recreate. Start blow-drying your hair while brushing it back.
Apply hair oil or gel to slick everything in place. Spritz hairspray to ensure everything stays in place.
From different hair colors to hairstyles that give her a different vibe, Lily’s hair journey is an absolute delight.
Pick the hue and the style that works best for your complexion and hair texture, and get ready for all the compliments.
