Charlize Theron’s Perfectly Undone Chignon

close formula

Always a red carpet fave, Charlize Theron shined at the Paris premiere of her highly-anticipated new film, “Dark Places.” To complement her Dior Haute Couture gown, Wella Professionals Stylist, Enzo Angileri, created  a gorgeous, perfectly undone chignon. “We were going for an overall look of sophisticated simplicity, so I decided on a loose updo that is parted on the side,” says Enzo. Here’s how he created the look.

Products Used



 Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals LuxeOil Keratin Protect Shampoo and Keratin Restore Mask which helps hydrate, nourish and strengthen hair.


Add 1 to 2 pumps of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Reconstructive Elixir to the palms of your hands and distribute evenly through damp hair.


Blow-dry using a round brush to improve shine and texture.


Starting from the back and working in small sections, curl the whole head using a 1.5-inch curling iron.


Lightly brush through the curls and then use Wella Professionals Stay Essential Hairspray near the roots to create support and volume.


To create the updo, start at the back by taking small pieces of hair and fastening them up using bobby pins, leaving the front pieces down. After the back is pinned up, loosely curl the front pieces with a 2.5-inch curling iron.
