From Plaits to Grown-Out Roots, We Look Back at Margot Robbie's Hairstyles

From Suicide Squad to Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie is considered a chameleon actor in Hollywood. Off-screen, it's hard to ignore that the Australian beauty has also nailed her makeup and hair looks over the years, providing some serious hair-inspiration. From plaits to grown-out roots, Margot Robbie's blonde tresses are a constant feature on our hair mood boards (There was even the lesser documented brunette stint, but she's been blonde ever-since.)

Of course, Margot can't get all the credit for her stunning hair moments. Her talented glam team, including Chanel makeup artist Pati Dubroff and hairstylist Bryce Scarlett, has created a series of memorable moments for red carpets to press events. Some of the hairstyles seem low-maintenance for us to try at home. Here are some of our favourites.

The Once Upon a Time In... Hollywood premiere led to one of Margot's most iconic hair looks. Down to the perfectly placed hair strand, the style is pure '70s-inspired glamour.

A simple, sultry, and very effective look for the Graham Norton Show, featuring those grown-out roots.

These dreamy, undone plaits were inspired by Sharon Tate, the actor Robbie portrayed in the film Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood. Debuted at the Cannes film festival in 2019, this is one of my favourite Margot looks.

Hairstylist and braid lover Sarah Potema created this incredible fish-tail plait for Margot during her Suicide Squad press tour in Miami. Both of the views look great.

Styled by the talented Bryce Scarlett, we love this look for three reasons: the grown-out roots, asymmetric cut and deep waves.

Margot Robbie debuted beachy, tousled hair at the Cannes film festival in 2019. It's the hair we hope to achieve when we unravel semi-damp plaits, but alas…

For the Goodbye Christopher Robin premiere in 2017, Robbie rocked a very editorial hairstyle, complete with neon eyeshadow. Not everyone would be bold enough to rock a wet, slicked-back hair look on the red carpet, but not everyone is Margot Robbie.

The Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood press day made ample opportunity for Margot Robbie's hair team to try out big, glam Hollywood hair. The results were epic.

This is definitely a more fun sort of look to those über-glam red carpets. A fresh half-up, half down style that we'll be copying.

A side parting and tousled waves for the ultimate holiday look (one to bank for when we can travel again).

The ice-blonde colour works so well on Robbie here. With her trademark roots showing, of course.

For the ITonya press tour (2018), Margot Robbie wore her then bob-length hair in gorgeous loose curls. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff gave the actor stunning pink shimmery eyes and matching lips.

Another Bryce Scarlett creation. The hairstylist has nailed the soft waves look, perfect for the red carpet.
