From the article : Karlie Kloss at the 2016 CFDA Awards: How to achieve her messy chignon!
Karlie Kloss may be known for her mature blonde lob, but for the 2016 CFDA Awards, she showed off a more carefree, fairy-tale-inspired look that gave her a youthful appeal when paired with a white cut-out dress featuring bows, and most notably, it's own set of Tinkerbell-sized wings. The white dress also came adorned with Swarovski crystal ornaments fit for a true fairy-tale princess.
The 23-year-old supermodel and L'Oreal muse opted for a disheveled chignon that sat high atop her head with a few free strands hanging around her face for that tousled, youthful, and carefree effect. As for her makeup, the Swarovski ambassador kept it to a minimum, sticking with her signature rosy cheeks, subtle eyes, and nude lip.

STEP-BY-STEP: KARLIE KLOSS' MESSY CHIGNON
To start your chignon journey, use a brush to pull your hair back into a tight ponytail at the top of your head, ensuring a flawless, no-fly-away base. To achieve Karlie's look, Frankie Foye smoothed her hair in a structured node just above the crown of the head. Spray a fine tooth comb with hairspray and run it through the roots to ensure a flawless finish.
Pull a few small strands of hair out from each side around the front of your face to add a little bit of structure and create that tousled, carefree effect like Karlie's.
To begin the chignon, spray your ponytail with L'Oreal's Elnett Satin hairspray, and use another hair elastic to pull the ponytail into a loose bun, leaving the end strands out of the elastic. Gently separate the pieces of hair making up the bun to create a large, full effect.
Using the end strands of hair sticking out from the elastic that holds your bun together, make a loop around the base of your existing bun to create a messy, I-woke-up-like-this look.
To hold everything in place use L'Oreal's Elnett Satin hairspray. Congrats, you've achieved supermodel hairstyle status!
