MODERN TAKE ON CHIGNON CHIC
The inspiration for this glamorous updo created by celebrity stylist Creighton Bowman of Exclusive Artists Management begins with Grace Kelly elegance. The up-to-the-minute twist: giving the classic chignon a beachy, textured finish.
Instructions from Creighton Bowman:
« First, I prepped hair with René Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo for extra volume.
« Next, I created three sections, lifted and pinned top two sections of hair at top of head and pulled lower section back into a ponytail. The ponytail is secured above the nape of the neck with an elastic band.
« Then I unpinned top sections and lightly back-combed hair, one section at a time, starting with the section at the back of the head.
« After wrapping ends of back section around the ponytail, I sprayed the ponytail with René Furterer new Vegetal Finishing Spray.
« I continued winding ends of back section around the ponytail, blending the two to create a full chignon.
« Next, I unpinned the front section. After lightly back-combing the section, I brushed it back, working ends into a chignon and pinning securely.
« To smooth flyaways, I applied René Furterer new Modeling Paste to palms of hands and ran palms lightly over hair.
« For long-lasting natural hold, I misted hair with René Furterer new Vegetal Finishing Spray.
