"This season was inspired by '90s ballerinas, maybe between performances, so there has to be a casualness to it," James says. "We're just putting the right texture in the hair and pulling it back into a loose chignon with a little bit sticking out on the side."Not only is it gorgeous, it's easy enough for you to pull off in the morning. Here's how James does it:
1. Prep hair with Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray ($29, Beauty.com) and rough-dry it in. Give the hair a natural, easy center part.
2. Use a one-inch curling iron to bump up the front part of the hair, creating more texture and giving it a natural wave.
3. Work Phyto Professional Matte Texturizing Paste ($24, Beauty.com) through the ends.
4. Pull the hair back into a low ponytail and roughly twist down to loop the hair into a low knot. Leave out two inches toward the end of the twist so it sticks out on the right side.
5. Finish by misting Phytolaque Soie Hairspray ($19, Beauty.com) to keep it in place.
