Create the classic chignon

ChignonWith Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you want to look your best for that special someone. One of my favorite looks is the classic chignon. Follow these step-by-step instructions to achieve your look:

1. Backcomb your hair a bit to give it some “grip” then sweep your hair to one side. Place bobby pins down the middle, back of your hair, crossing them over one another for maximum hold.

2. Take the hair you’ve gathered at the side and gently brush it toward the back. Now, wrap the hair around your hand, twist it up and tuck it in to create a smooth roll.

3. Secure the chignon at the top with bobby pins. Place the looser-hold hairpins in and up through the chignon to secure the hold. Apply a little hairspray.
