Margot Robbie: Hair CV

Published 29th Jun 2023 by Josie Jackson

There's no denying it: Margot Robbie is the woman of the moment. While the Australian actress has been in the spotlight since 2008, and has stared in blockbusters such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad and I, Tonya, it's her role in the upcoming Barbie movie that has really got people talking. Ahead of the film's July release, we thought we would explore some of the star's top hair moments, as we're predicting a new wave of clients requesting 'the Margot'.

Natural Blonde

We hate to break it to you, but Margot Robbie isn't actually a natural blonde like Barbie. Instead, she embraces her darker root to give her faux-blonde tresses a more lived-in look. As such, she's a great example for clients that are wanting to dye their hair but are worried that nothing but their natural hair colour will suit them.

60-Year Legacy

"We of course wanted to honour the 60-year legacy that this brand has," Margot Robbie was quoted by Vogue. As part of the editorial shoot for the Summer 2023 issue, there was a subtle nod to the 60s (Barbie was created in 1959). We love this toned down bump and blow dry, and your clients will too!

The All-Australian Girl

Margot Robbie kept her hair simple for the Governors Awards 2022, however the soft blow-dry really let her colour sing. The money pieces open up her face and give a beachy, sun-kissed appearance, making it a high-demand look for summer. Jake Nugent is predicting money pieces to get bolder and blonder this season, but what do you think?

Summer Texture

Many clients will be inclined to opt for a hair-up over a blow-dry for any special occasions in the summer, in a bid to keep cool, but for those who feel out of place with all of their hair tied back, a tousled low-pony with plenty of texture is the way forward. To elevate this simple look, play close attention to the health of the hair, offering a trim if necessary.

Baby Braids

Margot's baby braids at the Cannes Film Festival in 2019 are simple enough to avoid overpowering her lace gown, but interesting enough that your eyes are drawn to her hair. Could braids be back on top this summer?
