HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Prep the hair with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Perfect Texture. Create a radial parting and clip away.

  • 2

    Backcomb horizontally from the high point of the head to the top of the occipital bone. Gather the hair in a low ponytail with a clear elastic band.

  • 3

    In one motion, form a wide chignon. Secure the shape with hairpins.

  • 4

    Bring the hair in front of the radial parting to meet with the chignon.

  • 5

    Spread the sides with your fingers before pinning to personalize placement.

    Pro Tip: Not tough enough? If lengths are too soft when pinning, smoke L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art True Grip through the style to give hair a fabric-like texture to hold pins securely.
