How to create a wet chignon

With the party season slowly approaching, one of the easiest ways to get spruced up for a office party or night out on the town is tying your hair back into a simple updo. Chignons are easy to style, look elegant and work well even with fine hair. Check out Aveda’s tutorial and learn how quickly and easy it is to style a chignon.

How-To Steps:

  1. Shampoo, condition and comb Aveda Brilliant Retexturing gel through hair.
  2. Part hair from ear to ear, creating front and back sections. Gather back section into a low ponytail and secure with elastic.
  3. Part hair from the left and right side at the parietal ridge and clip them out of your way.
  4. Comb left side back, wind around the base ponytail. Tuck in ends and secure with a pin.
  5. Repeat for right side so that both sides are wrapped around the base ponytail.
  6. Unclip top section. Finger-style fringe to create texture and lift. Twist as you gather the front section into a second ponytail secured just above the first.
  7. Twist both ponytails together and secure with an elastic. Loop ponytail into a chignon.
  8. Secure with pins and massage for looseness and texture. Finish with a spritz of Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine.
