Chignon Twist

BEAUTYKim & Chloe

Chignon Twist How stunning is this up-do? It’s perfect for a night out on the town or even an interview. Not only is this chignon fit for any occasion, but it’s super simple to do and can either be casual and dressy.

Here’s what you do to get the look:

Step 1: Pick up two 1" pieces of hair right at the front of your head. Use your natural part as a guide to know where to pick up the first piece.

Step 2: French braid your hair with two pieces aka do a two strand twist. All you do is take the front piece and wrap it to the back and drop the new piece that is now in front.  Switch hands. Pick up the dropped hair plus some more in front and wrap it back over the hair you are holding while moving the back piece to the front and dropping it. Switch hand and continue.  Sound confusing?

Step 3: Once you’ve twisted your hair to the very back of your head,  pin the twist so it stays in place and place hair in a ponytail.

Step 3: Roll hair upwards until the desired chignon shape is achieved and use bobby pins to secure in place. (Tip: the longer the hair, the more bobby pins to accomplish.)

Woohoo!! You’ve accomplished the look!
