The contemporary asymmetry begins above the temple on one side, where the hair is woven into a curvy French plait, which winds attractively around the back of the head.

Then the braid becomes a marvellous rose chignon in an quirky off-centre position, decorated with a diamanté detail.  The braids also create an amazing curvy silhouette at the side and nape, and wisps are pulled out to add some edge to the soft lines.

Finally, the textures and movement in this artistic hair design are superbly accentuated by the beautifully blended highlights, in a modern style that is perfect for any formal occasion!
