GALLERY >> How To Get Alexa's Looks
Doesn’t Alexa Chung’s up-do look super chic? The TV presenter, model, It girl, designer, general style icon (we could go on) was spotted rocking new-look hair at the Louis Vuitton extravanganza in Shanghai on Wednesday night and it certainly caught our attention.
The super glam style is one we're not used to seeing on the Chungster who typically sticks to her hipster look of loose waves accented by a shaggy Birkin-perfect fringe. She might not mix up her cuts very often but with a little tweak here and there, she can make her mop one of the most versatile 'dos of all time.
Us mere mortals need the expertise of professionals to coif our tresses into a similar array of fab shapes, but Alexa knows how to keep it interesting with the simple addition of a schoolgirl clip, a scrunch of mousse or a sweet-as-pie hairband.
To discover just how the starlet gets her many hair-dos, we grilled her actual hairdresser George Northwood. Click through the gallery above for his top tips, starting with...
1. George says to use a mousse on wet hair, before rough drying and blowdrying the fringe forwards.
2. Tie the hair into a ponytail in the middle of the back of the head. Pull out sections around the face.
3. Use the WAM curling iron to curl the front sections and the ponytail itself before spraying with a Redken shine spray.
4. Either wrap and pin a piece of hair around the hairband or tie a piece of ribbon around for full on Alexa style.
