As far as updo hairstyles go, we just can't get enough of textured chignons. With a subtly disheveled finish, it's a look that is both sultry and elegant, not to mention right on trend this season! To find out how you can try one of your very own, just follow the easy tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
It doesn't matter if you don't have time to wash your hair because this style works well - perhaps best - with unwashed locks. To absorb excess oil at the root, use Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Blow Out LongWear Spray. The dry shampoo will revive your mane and give it some added lift before you even start styling.

Step 2
Brush all of your hair back off your face, then spray it with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray.

Step 3
Use your fingertips to muss the hair on top to dishevel it and add volume throughout.

Step 4
To create more height on top, spray the roots again with High Lift Creation Spray and massage them with your fingertips.

Step 5
Loosely sweep the hair back into a loose bun or French twist and secure with bobby pins.

Step 6
To loosen the hair on top, slide your fingers under the hair and slowly lift it. You don't need to lift your fingers very high, only half an inch or so.

Step 7
Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to keep frizz at bay and give your style long-lasting hold.
