Delphine Manivet's Spring 2017 presentation was held at Ladurée quite fitting for the quintessential French bridal designer. Also fitting were the nonchalant chignons that were paired with soft, romantic dresses — the epitome of French-girl chic. "It's a pretty hairstyle but it's not too 'done,'" says hairstylist Fabric Gili, who created the look. Here, he tells us how he did it.
1. Center part your hair and apply a dime-sized amount of a texture cream from root to tip. (He used Fekkai Blowout Texturizer.) Then rough dry hair with a blow dryer.
2. Spritz a beach spray, like Verb Sea Spray, all over hair. If you still need a bit more texture, curl random sections with a one-inch barrel curling iron.

3. Loop hair into a loose chignon at the nape of the neck and secure with a clear elastic, keeping out few pieces of face-framing strands. Make sure your hair covers your earsâ€¢a key element to making it look soft and natural, Gili says. Finish with a light coat of hairspray. He used Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray; we also like Sachajuan Light & Flexible Hairspray.
