Sharing is caring!

alexa chung met ball gala 2012Last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, Alexa Chung explored her vintage tastes in a 1960’s-inspired Marc Jacobs paneled leather dress complemented by a shorter Brigitte Bardot-esque hairstyle crafted by Sebastian Professional stylist Diego Da Silva.

When creating the hair look, Da Silva was…

“inspired by the 1960’s feel of dress and wanted to revisit a shorter haired, rock and roll Brigitte Bardot version of modern times.”

To achieve Alexa’s vintage ‘do, follow Diego’s tips:

  1. Wash hair with Sebastian Professional Light Shampoo and Conditioner for lightweight conditioning and enhanced softness.
  2. Apply Sebastian Professional Texturizer to the roots of damp hair for added lift and use a round brush to blow-dry.
  3. With a fine tooth comb, backcomb the roots and then use a brush to soften the appearance.
  4. Loosely pull the hair back into a half ponytail leaving the face-framing fringe flowing in front, and secure with bobby pins.
  5. Spritz Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper for lasting hold.
