Dramatic Hair and Makeup Looks
Try this chignon with a twist when you don’t have time to wash your hair (that bit of grease gives the style some hold). Brush your hair into a low ponytail. Split the ponytail into three sections of varying thickness, then braid each section. Next, take one of the braids and wind it around the base of the two remaining braids. Bobby-pin it in place as you wind, to form the base of the bun. Do the same with the remaining braids until you have a complete bun. If your hair is short, here’s a different strategy: Pull your hair back to the extent that you can, slide in an elastic or a barrette, and build the chignon using a clip-in braided extension (such as Hair U Wear Clip-In Rope Braid Hair Extension, $9, ulta.com).
