Want hair like Alexa’s? Then here’s how to do it….

George Northwood is a bit of a hair god. Responsible for the loose, laid-back waves of Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, he is the go-to guy for London’s cool girls. Which is not to say that his salon is in the least bit intimidating – not at all. When I rocked up there on Wednesday night for a Sheer Luxe event, it couldn’t have been more welcoming, there’s even a gorgeous little dog wandering around. Most importantly, the team who work with George are all trained in the art of beautifully ‘undone’ hair – meaning nothing too structured, too hard to look after or too tricky to achieve yourself at home.

While my hair could never be described as my crowning glory, after senior stylist Stephen set to work with the tongs (that’s me above!) it was transformed into something I’ve never actually seen before on my own head! Wavy, apparently thicker and relatively easy to do at home (I tried and I think with some practice it wouldn’t be too much of a nightmare to do), tonging is the secret trick of the likes of Alexa and Sienna Miller, who recently chopped off her hair for a shorter, wavier look. It could just be what my hair’s been missing all these years!
