  • Chignon updo with a pomp

If you want to whip up a storm with your next updo hairstyle, we recommend you try this voluminous chignon with a pomp. It's glamorous, intricate and it's bound to get you noticed!

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with damp, clean hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse throughout and rough dry with a blow-dryer.

Step 2
Once dried, spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray.

Step 3
Section off the hair on top and at the front - this will become the pomp. Lift the hair and gently tease it from behind to add volume, then smooth it gently back and secure with a bobby pin or two.

Step 4
Pull some more hair from the sides up toward the pomp and secure them in the same place.

Step 5
Tease the rest of your hair at the root to give it plenty of body, then twist and pin it into a low bun near the nape of your neck.

Step 6
When you're done, complete the look with a generous amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to give your updo long-lasting hold and keep flyaways at bay. That's it!

Haircare tip

To detangle teased hair, apply plenty of conditioner and use a wide-tooth comb to work out the knots while you're in the shower the next day. Start at the ends and work your way up rather than attempting to drag the comb down through your hair.
