One of the easiest ways to get spruced up for a night out on the town is tying your hair back into a simple updo. Instead of pulling it back into something restricting (read: complicated, time consuming and only for professionals), try on a soft chignon for size. Ashley Hanna-Pisciotta, hairstylist from Mizu NY, shows us how to get this elegant style in just a few quick steps.
Part hair completely down the center and pick a side for the chignon to rest on. Pull hair to one side and create two ponytails, one in each hand.
Tie the hair into a loose knot.
Wrap one side around to the right and stick a hair pin in to hold. Repeat on the left side and hold with a pin.
Finish off with Oribe SuperFine Hairspray.
