Bun hairstyles are great for all kinds of situations, but sometimes it can be nice to switch things up a little. That's where this simple runway chignon comes in. As seen at Madrid Fashion Week recently, it's an ultra-chic look that keeps the hair up and under control without compromising on style.
How to style it
Starting with clean, damp hair, gently comb away any knots or tangles, then apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray throughout. Make sure you get even coverage because the spray will protect your hair from heat damage.
Blow-dry your locks on medium temperature, using a paddle brush to keep the hair straight. To reduce drying time, divide your hair up into small sections, then start from the nape of your neck and work your way up towards the crown of your head.
Once all of your hair is dry, part your hair on one side, then work a very small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel from the hairline to the back of your head.
Comb the gel back through your hair to get a smooth, even finish.
Smooth the hair to the back and twist the lengths up into a chignon. Secure with a hair tie. Mist some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray over your whole head, then use the palms of your hands to create a smooth and sleek finish.
