Masterclass: How to get super cool Alexa Chung locks in mere minutes | how tos hair styles beauty 2 feature beauty 2  pictures

We have a celebrity style crush and are not afraid to admit it! Since style icon Alexa Chung was propelled into the public eye, women the world over have coveted her just-out of-bed look, avidly following her every move just to get an inside peek into her super cool and exceptionally well groomed world. And it's not just the clothes we are obsessing over, her signature tousled 'do is probably the most sought after lock style since "The Rachel"

So we bribed Australian Hairdresser of the year Joey Scandizzo to tell us how to help get our locks into ship shape Alexa style.

"There are 3 key elements to creating Alexa’s look: colour, cut and simply styling"  explains Joey.

STEP ONE: COLOUR

Alexa may have been one of the first A-List celebs to adopt the highly popular balayage look.

Whilst Alexa refers to the style as ‘frosted tips’, Australian stylists all around the country and adopting the versatile colouring technique that is hand painted on to sections of the hair to create a faded grown out end result.

For a subtle look just like Alexa opt for a shade that is 2-3 shades lighter than your natural hair colour.

 

STEP TWO: CUT

Want to nail Alexa’s style? Then it is time to cut your hair off ladies! Alexa’s signature chin length hair is accompanied by her trademark centre part and softly layered shaggy bob. The fringe accentuates her eyes and finished the look perfectly,

Ask your stylist to look at your face shape and structure to advise you on what length bob and fringe would best suit your personal features.

 

STEP THREE: STYLE

Step 1. To recreate Alexa’s signature casually messy do wrap the middle lengths of your hair around a curling wand, ensuring you leave the ends free. Hold the hair around the wand for 5 seconds before releasing.

Step 2. Continue this step with the rest of your hair, sectioning hair randomly and without any consistency regarding section thicknesses.

Step 3. When you have lightly curled all of your hair (remember you are avoiding the roots and the ends) lightly run your fingers through your hair to mess up the finished look.

Step 4. Spray a light spritz of hairspray over your tresses to lock this style into place.

Now that you have this British beauty's hair, go on and flaunt it to the world - just don't tell your friends how easy it was!
