If you have a wedding to attend this summer, a low knot or chignon is a great hairstyle choice. Not only does it keep your hair up and under control, it has an adorably romantic vibe, too. Also, if you're going to wear something with a high neckline or go all-out with the statement jewels, it'll stop long hair from overwhelming your look.
If you want to try this style on for size, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below...
Starting with damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout. Use a paddle brush to keep the hair as straight as you can and blow-dry on a medium heat setting. The cream will smooth the cuticle as the hair dries, giving you a smooth, frizz-free finish.
Once dried, part your hair on whichever side you like best, using a tail comb for accuracy, then sweep all your hair over the shoulder on the side with less hair.
Next comes the fancy chignon chapter of this tutorial! Start by gathering the hair into a low pony and secure with a hair tie. Twist and pin the hair to the back of your head in small sections until it's all up - the smaller the sections you use, the more intricate the chignon will appear. Make sure you keep it all on one side and use as many bobby pins as you need.
To make this step happen a lot faster (i.e. if your alarm doesn't go off on the day of the wedding you're supposed to be at à la Four Weddings and a Funeral) you can loosely braid the pony and wind it into a loose side bun instead.
Finally, spray your new updo generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're good to go!
