8 Steps to create a beautiful chignon



1

Wash hair

Keep your hair healthy, smooth, and gorgeous by using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner. Healthy hair is always beautiful, whether you leave it down or put in an updo.

2

Divide and conquer

When your hair has dried, part hair on one side and divide hair into three sections: one on each side and one at the back. Put the sections of hair at the side in front of your shoulders.

 

3

Tie your hair

Put the back section into a low ponytail. Get another elastic and tie the end of your ponytail.

 

4

Get rollin’

Roll your ponytail inwards until you reach your nape. Tuck it and secure with bobby pins.

 

5

Be a wrap star

Hide your ponytail elastic by wrapping the rest of your hair around it. Cross each section diagonally over the base of your ponytail (which is now a chignon), wrap hair around the elastic, and secure with bobby pins.

Hair Hack: Spray TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray on your bobby pins to give them a stronger hold.

Wrap and tuck

Spray away

Spritz TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray on your chignon to keep it sleek and frizz-free.
