There’s nothing more romantic and well, Parisian, than a loose chignon like the one at the Rebecca Vallance SS13 show. Get the exact look by hairstylist Sophie Roberts for TRESemmé.

The inspiration

“There is an ease and femininity to this chignon at the Rebecca Vallance show this season. Inspired by the quintessential Parisian girl, with a nonchalant beauty, the hair is loosely slung and centre parted, complete with flyaways and layers falling around the face. The hair has been blow-dried and set with mousse for body and texture before being loosely tied and twisted casually into a chignon at the nape of the neck.”
– Sophie Roberts, Hair Director for TRESemmé.
