Shine Serum: The low chignon is a sleek look, so shine serum is a must. Use a dime size amount of your favorite product to smooth away fly-aways and keep everything in place.

Hair Elastic: Take a hair elastic and secure your hair in a low pony-tail at the nape of your neck. If you have a “bungee” on hand, use that to help really secure the hair in place without causing any bumps.

Bobby Pins: Begin twisting the ponytail around itself and then wrap the twisted hair around where you placed the elastic. Place the bobby pins into the twisted bun to hold it in place. Bonus tip: spraying the bobby pins with hairspray before hand works great for extra hold.
