Nicknamed the ‘Croydon face-lift’ in 2011 when it first became popular, this sleek look is having a comeback moment. Although this hairstyle was primarily popular due to its lifting effect, women are now wearing this look purely for aesthetics. Let’s take a closer look at the Jean Paul Gaultier runway hairstyle.
This severe look is a popular choice amongst Londoners and is fast becoming a must-have for red-carpet events as well as day-to-day occasions. Even you can give this style a go thanks to its simplicity. It is perfect for opening up the face, and doesn’t require any adjusting throughout the day. Did we forget to mention that this style knocks years off your appearance? We don’t need any more convincing. Whether your hair is long or short, you can create your own version of the slick top-knot in just a few simple steps.
The instant face-lift chignon is oh-so simple to style. After washing hair, brush
backwards towards the top of your head and secure into a tight ponytail
. Next, wrap the lengths around the base of your ponytail and secure with another hair tie and bobby pins. Finish off by applying gel
from the roots to the start of your hair tie to create a sleek finish. Prepare to receive compliments about your youthful complexion left, right and centre! © Pixelformula / Jean Paul Gaultier prêt-à-porter runway, Autumn-Winter 2014-2015 © Jean Louis David
