Have you ever looked at a British or French cool “it” girl and wondered how they can possibly put together such chic ensembles while maintaining their effortless vibe? We do so nearly daily and thought it was about time we figured it out for all of us. So, today, we’re learning about Alexa Chung – starting with her lusted-after waves. When researching her signature hair, we came across a trick SO easy and foolproof, it begged to be replicated.
In an interview with Into the Gloss, Alexa shared, “It’s like with my hair: I wash it every day because I have to—it gets so greasy. But then I just literally tuck it behind my ears and wait for it to dry.” While we don’t condone washing your hair every day (we stick to two or three times a week!), we now swear by Alexa’s trick for easy, heat-free waves. Because these waves don’t require heat or product, your hair is free to just be! The end result is soft, smooth locks with a bit of a bend to them thanks to the ear tuck! Now, it’s a trick we find ourselves going back to every time we wash our hair. Who knew it was so simple?!
