Come through drippin’.
Ch-ch-chain of fools? None here! The sleek, chained locks and gelled hairlines that adorned the models at Christian Siriano’s Fall 2019 show were surprisingly as wearable as they were fierce. Most relevantly, though, they came just in time for bookmarking on our phones come festival season.
TRESemmé Global Stylist, hair guru to the stars (and now accessory tastemaker!) Justine Marjan lets us in on how to keep some of these fab chainmail strands budge-free: “Apply the TRESemmé TRES Two Unscented Extra Hold Hair Spray to keep hair and chains in place. The chains provide a lot of movement, so keeping it controlled is key!”
Read on to see a step-by-step of how to get this futuristic, cyber-punk chained locks look. Scroll through the gallery for a glimpse of the jaw-dropping runway show and get ready to literally come through drippin’:

Step 2: Straighten hair from roots to ends using a flat iron and a smoothing brush.
Step 3: Section off a horizontal, headband-style part from ear to ear and clip up and out of the way.
Step 4: Create a tiny Dutch or cornrow braid from one side to the other, then secure with an elastic. This will serve as the anchor for your chains.
Step 5: Gather hair into a low ponytail, smoothening any kinks and flyaways with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum. Set in place with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Extend Hold Level 4 Hair Spray and a smoothing brush, then secure with an elastic.
Step 6: Attach 10 chains to the braided section, then un-clip the top section to let your crown loose to cover the braid. Gather your now-chained locks into your existing ponytail and re-secure with another hair elastic or hair bungee.
Step 7: Wrap a final piece of chain around the elastic to conceal, then finish with TRESemmé TRES Two Unscented Extra Hold Hair Spray to seal everything in.
Step 8: You’re done!
