Deconstructed, Messy Chignons
The Trend: Deconstructed, Messy Chignons
The Breakdown: How gorgeous is this piece-y, textured, torn-apart chignon? It's one of those effortlessly chic hairstyles you can wear to a wedding, semi-formal, or formal event. This updo was worn by models on the Marchesa runway, and Antonio Corral Calero, global ambassador for Moroccanoil, explained that it's the perfect hairstyle to pair with an ornate, dressy gown since the simplicity of the hair contrasts with the details of a fancy dress.
Get the Look: One of the keys for pulling the messy look off — and to make sure that "it has that modern vibe to it" — is to make sure your hair looks superhealthy and hydrated, Calero said backstage. To do that, prep your hair with something like the Moroccanoil Treatment and Smoothing Lotion before blow drying. Once dry, add some texturizing spray to help create grip and hold, then create an "imperfect, deep side part," Calero said. Sweep hair across your forehead and secure hair in a low bun. For that "torn apart" look, pull pieces of hair out of the chignon and resecure with bobby pins. There's no method to this madness — just treat your hair like a piece of art! Marchesa hair stylists added some texture-heavy accessories to some of the chignons, including velvet ribbon, and had fresh flowers sewn into their hair.
