Start with completely dry hair. Apply a little shine serum to give your twisted chignon a polished look. Brush all the hair back to an inch (2.5 cm) above the nape of your neck. Gather it tightly and secure the hair with a hair elastic (use two if your hair is thick).
Take the hair that is out of the tail and twist it to the end.
Twist it further until the twists bunch up and start to create the bun shape.
Wind your twisted hair around the hair elastic and pin it in place using bobby pins. To finish off the look, use a firm-hold hairspray. (Optional – I usually don’t)
