Award winning Hairdresser to the stars, Mark Hill, let us in on what Millie was after:

“Millie wanted something timelessly classic to ensure she stood out from the crowd and nothing says it better than a sleek and sophisticated svelte-do.”

We’re girls after your own heart, Millie.

Cut to the how to from Mark…

Step 1:

“To create this, I spritzed my Party The Night Away Firm Hold Hairspray (£6.29) all over Millie’s hair to keep it tight and add a slight wet-look for a contemporary twist.”

Step 2:

“Next I created a side parting and gathered the hair in a tousled twist at the nape of her neck.”

Step 3:

“I finished off the look with subtle grips to secure the low bun and perfected with another spritz of hairspray to keep everything in place.”

Et Voila. The perfect chignon for any special occasion this summer, including all those weddings
