The old 'less is more' mantra is a cliché for a reason: because it's true most of the time, as proven by the wavy chignon hairstyle featured above. This simple updo is chic, its right on-trend, and to cap it all, it's really easy to recreate!
To find out how to get the look, just follow the tutorial below.
How to style it
Starting with clean, towel-dried hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout.
Rough dry your hair most of the way with your blow-dryer to create a natural-looking, undone texture.
To finish the blowout, take chunks of your hair and twist them. Hold the twists by the ends and dry them completely.
Part your hair on your favorite side with your hands to get an imperfect line, then finger-comb your hair on either side of the part to fix it in place.
Gather your hair at the back as if you were going to tie it into a very loose low ponytail. Leaving some slack, twist and pin your hair into a chignon at the back. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, a simple knot or bun will do.
Gently tease a few pieces of hair loose here and there to soften the look, then finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
No wash required
If you don't want to wash your hair, spritz your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray to absorb any excess oil, then skip straight to step four.
