An effortless kind of beauty accompanied by the softest attitude shaped the romantic-meets-modern look at Michael Kors spring / summer 2014. The tousled chignon imagined to emulate the lived-in, disheveled hairstyle resulting after a night-out was the perfect mix of pretty and edgy. With the spring 2014 hair trends pointing to all things carefree and perfectly undone in the styling department, this is a look you’ll want to master for the upcoming seasons, although no one says you can’t start sporting it sooner.

If you’re one of the girls to find beauty in imperfection, or if you like your looks entirely effortless, the loose, messy chignon is clearly for you. Check out the complete how to for this hairstyle right after the break.

Start by applying a light mouse on your damp hair, combing it out evenly and then proceed to blow drying your hair roughly with your fingers to create volume and texture.
After applying a heat protecting spray all over your hair, begin curling it by using a one-inch curling iron. Seeing this is intended to be a messy, disheveled hairstyle, you won’t have to curl your hair section by section, instead pick out random sections of hair as you go.
Once done, you can work on relaxing the curls by combing them through with a skinny brush. Using a a mattifying powder, like Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dust It, work the product into the strands of hair with your fingers, to create the rough, undone texture.

After teasing the crown gently, simply twist the strands of hair into a loose chignon, securing them with bobby pins along the way.
To achieve the same effortless result as the one seen on the runway, make sure to leave out enough bits of hair flying around the face, while working in making the look your own.
Finish off the look by setting the hair with a medium hold hairspray, to which you can also add a few spritz of shine spray to prevent frizz and keep the hair protected all throughout the day.
