When you have short hair, wearing it in an updo can seem like a real challenge, but you can make it work with the right styling technique. All you really need are some great products and a handful of bobby pins, and a chic chignon can be all yours!
How to style it
Unwashed second day hair has way more grip than sleek, clean locks, so there's no need to wash and condition before attempting this hairstyle. Instead, add even more grip with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray. The dry shampoo formula will help your strands to bind together easily while simultaneously eliminating greasiness at the root.
Lift the hair at the crown and mist it with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Gently tease it from behind to add some extra volume, then sweep it back.
Starting with the top layers, twist and pin sections of hair to form a chignon at the back of your head. Make sure the twists are fairly tight before you secure them.
Continue twisting and pinning individual pieces of hair until it's all up. There isn't a golden rule about how you should secure it, just aim for something bun-like.
Mist your completed style generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. This will give your updo long lasting hold, prevent flyaways, and keep any humidity in the air from causing an unexpected frizz attack.
