The Chantell Hairstyle
Chantell’s look was done in a way to incorporate vintage and editorial, together-old and new. I envisioned the clothes and makeup to look very undone, as previously stated, disheveled and almost dirty but at the same time I obviously wanted the hair to stand out-not loud but definitely noticeable.
