Opt for a glamorous yet sophisticated updo for special occasions and nights out with our how-to guide for creating a beautiful, textured chignon.
Create a deep side parting before sectioning roughly two inches of hair from the front and securing out of the way on either side of your head.
Gather the rest of your hair into a mid-ponytail at the back of your head and secure with a hair elastic. Split the ponytail in half and plait each section.
4. Chignon 1
To create the chignon, twist the braids around each other until they form a knot. Secure with hair pins and spray with Sebastian Shaper Fierce.
5. Chignon 2
Release the front section of hair on the right side and sweep up and over the knot and secure in place. Repeat with the left section, sweeping it over in the opposite direction.
6. Add Shine
To finish, mist a light hold spray over your updo such as Wella SP Luxe Oil Light Spray, light-reflecting hairspray.
