The Crown actress Claire Foy looked positively royal–and very chic–for a recent awards show, thanks to a pretty chignon styled by Jillian Halouska. “Claire’s Valentino dress was very lovely and intricate,” shares Halouska. “I wanted to edge it up a little and give the hair an editorial, runway feel. Claire is always down to try new styles and I had been planning with her makeup artist and stylist for about a week.

1.  On damp hair, apply Matrix Style Link Blowout Skinny Queen, create a center part and blow dry.

2.  Part out front pieces on each side before the ear. Using the blow dryer and a round brush, twist each piece back.

3.  Using Matrix Style Link Over Achiever, muss up the rest of the hair to create texture and dimension. Pull into a low pony tail leaving the front two pieces out.

4.  Separate pony into three pieces and coil them around each other. Sculpt the pieces into a chignon to your liking, pinning as you go.

5.  Half-tuck the front behind the ears and loosely pin a few pieces into the chignon. Lightly mist Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Replenish Oil-Mist all over for a nice, healthy sheen.
