The Original IT Girl Alexa Chung Shares Her Beauty Secrets

Including how she nails 'I woke up like this' hair

Alexa Chung, ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel, is loved for making vintage cool again. The model, author and TV presenter shares her top beauty tips. 

She lets her hair dry naturally. “I twist it into little buns all over my head while my hair is still damp so it creates a loose wave.”

She has beauty mantras. “Accentuate your favourite feature. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new trends. Don’t wear too much concealer under the eyes. Always curl your lashes before adding mascara.”

Soft red lips are her go-to. “A lip scrub can really help a winter mouth. If you don’t have one, make it from Vaseline and brown sugar.” A red lip paired with an up-do is Alexa’s perfect party look.

She washes her hair everyday. “For body, I wash and condition frequently. I use products compatible with L’Oréal Professionnel Pro Fiber to make the treatment last longer.”
