“Create a subtle statement by braiding silk scarves into a classic chignon,” says Michael Dueñas, Schwarzkopf Professional Brand Ambassador

For the Alice + Olivia SS’15 runway show, Schwarzkopf Professional Brand Ambassador, Michael Dueñas, put a new, fun spin on a classic chignon, by braiding silk scarves into the updo. Here’s how he did it!

    Start by applying two golf ball sized portions of OSiS+ Grip Extreme Hold Mousse to dry hair from scalp to ends for control and shine. Part the hair in the middle.

    Dry the hair flat toward the forehead using the Schwarzkopf Professional Heat Dryer Powered by FHI and then gather hair into a low tight ponytail with finger texture, leaving out two small sections of hair near the hairline. Secure hair with a hook elastic.

    Fold a scarf to match the length of hair and pull through the elastic to secure to ponytail. With the scarf in the middle, section the ponytail into two parts, creating a three-section braid. Braid to the ends and wrap the braid into a tight bun and secure with large pins. Hide the end of the scarf inside the bun and tuck loose hair behind the ears and add a slight wave to the ends. Finish and polish the look with OSiS+ Elastic Flexible Hold Hairspray.
