If you don't have time to wash your hair and you need a style that will make you look totally put together, we've got the perfect look for you: introducing the low twisted chignon.

This updo is really just a low, slightly off-kilter French twist and it actually works better on dirty hair because of the extra grip. So, why not give it a go the next time you hit snooze too many times?

How to style it

Step 1
Start by brushing your hair through to detangle it, then spray it all over with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Pay special attention to the roots to get a more full-bodied look that will disguise the dirt!

Step 2
Use your fingertips to massage the roots, then muss the hair all over.

Step 3
Sweep it all back off of your face so the hair is hanging down your back. Starting at one side, roll the lengths of your hair into a banana shape at the nape of your neck. Keep going until all of your hair has been added, then secure with bobby pins.

Step 4
You can tuck the ends behind the chignon or leave them poking messily out into a kind of alternative side pony like the model above.

Step 5
Gently tease a few pieces of hair loose at the front to frame your face and soften the overall look.

Step 6
Complete your new hairstyle with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold.
