Romantic hair style alert!

By Victoria Riedl


Spotted! Fragile beauty gliding along Oxford Street, her hair back-combed to create a bird nest-like texture and then bundled behind one ear. The finishing touch, an antique rose tucked into the bun. It made me sigh.

There is something so romantic about hair that has been heavily textured. One of my favourite shows for this coming spring is Charles Anastase. It was the handy work of hair stylist Lyndell Mansfield who scrunched and pinned loose chignons haphazardly for a sweetheart look.


She used Techni.Art Playball Texture Tonic, £11 by L’Oreal Professional, which gives hair extra oomph and hold – perfect for messy styling. Backcomb for volume or scrunch in your hands and then pile and pin to your head – the more careless, the better!
