The magazine quotes Chung's stylist George Northwood who explains how he recreates the Jane Birkin look with a modern twist. According to Northwood, "this is a simple, one-length bob, but it’s cut into for a shaggier feel." What's more, this look suits all hair types and face shapes. To get the color, Northwood tells Elle UK to "ask for a baliage technique, it focuses color through the ends of the hair rather than at the roots, giving a natural sun-kissed look." Northwood styles Chung's hair with Kérastase Oléo-Crème, for lived-in texture. He uses a diffuser to dry the hair. You can also "rough dry" hair by drying half way and then letting hair air dry and you scrunch it with your fingers.

    Alexa Chung Messy HairstylesAlexa Chung Messy Hairstyles: "For teens to aspire to now…I think Alexa Chung gets its right. Partly because she’s an ex-model, she’s got that going for her—that lanky body that photographs really beautifully…but I just like her tossed off hair. It’s chopped, she lets her natural texture come out, she doesn’t look tortured with blow dryers or straightening irons or anything. She is sexy, obviously very sexy, but in a fresh and kind of tomboy-ish way. There’s nothing worse for me than seeing young girls trying to be sexy; it’s just so painful. I think girls are really interested in her beauty. Girls always talk about her on our forums."
