After she became the latest L'Oréal Paris spokesperson, we've been delving into Karlie Kloss' impressive hairstyle history. Safe to say, this gorgeous windswept chignon from the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year is definitely one of our favorites!

With plenty of texture and a perfectly imperfect finish, we just can't get enough of this look. If you would like to try it yourself, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below.

1/ Get the look

Step one
Starting with dry hair - this style is perfect for unwashed locks - spray L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray evenly throughout.

Step two
Tease the hair with a fine-tooth comb to add volume and texture, then gently smooth it all back away from your face.

Step three
Take two sections of hair, one from the hairline on each side of your head, twist them, then pin them at the back.

Step four
Twist and pin the rest of your hair over the top to form a chignon. It's supposed to look a little disheveled so don't be afraid to just pin it all up at random.

Step five
Complete the look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold.

This style looks great with simple accessories or a dramatic makeup look, making it the perfect hairstyle for a night out or a special occasion. Karlie did wear it on one of the most glamorous red carpets in the world, after all...

Where will you rock it?
