Rachel Bilson showed up to the 2012 Summer TCA Party wearing a unique updo. While buns and chignons are usually formal and stuffy, this one was a bit more casual and edgy. Now you can create the look at home with this step-by-step guide!
Step 1: Create a deep part on the left side of your head, so three-fourths of your hair is flipped over to the right side.
Step 2: Take a large section of hair at the front, right side of your head and clip off too the side.
Step 3: Gather the remaining hair and pull into a low ponytail. Make sure you are keeping the part in tact as you do this. Wrap the ponytails around itself and secure with bobby pins.
Step 4: Take the unsecured hair from the front of the head back toward the ponytail. As you do this, make sure you are draping the hair so that it hangs down, covering the ear. Twist the ends around your chignon and secure with bobby pins. You can also keep a small section of hair down so it frames your face.
Step 5: Since the left side must remain tight and close to the scalp, apply a thin layer of Shu Uemura Yokan Craft Texturizing Melt ($38, Shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com) to that side of the hair.
Will you be wearing this fun updo any time soon?
