Try It | Chignon Express
The first in a monthly series of Juicy-specific hair-definitely-dos created by the ever-talented duo of Rubi Jones and Samantha Hahn. Introducing, L’art du chignon express!
1. Gather all of your hair at the top of your head and wrap an elastic around it to create a ponytail. Make sure you have good posture when wrapping your elastic around your ponytail, otherwise the back and sides will be droopy. And NOBODY likes a slouchy ponytail. It’s a hairstylist’s pet peeve!
2. Allow the hair from your ponytail to “waterfall” down. I may have made that term up, “waterfall,” but it’s basically when the hair evenly fans all the way around your ponytail so there’s a little pit in the middle. Then, lightly backcomb all the hair in the underneath of the “waterfall,” leaving the very top relatively smooth.
3. Gently and carefully wrap all of your hair around your ponytail. Tucking the ends into itself. It’s important to do this gently because you don’t want to ruin all your backcombing and you want to keep the exterior layer that isn’t backcombed on the outside. This will make a big top knot on even the finest hair. No donut required!
4. Pin your top knot in its four imaginary “corners.” This should secure it in place. Add more hair pins to tuck any stragglers as needed, and you’re done!
