Don't show up to your next soiree without trying on this style! A side chignon is a great twist on the classic style that can upgrade your regular wave or work with your natural texture. With a little teasing, bobby pins and a few deliberately placed tendrils, you can transform your everyday style. Keep reading to see the amazing Sherri Jessee transform Hayley Hood from bodacious curls into an effortless updo!

Step 1: Begin with softly curled hair. Spray each section with a heat protecting spray and wrap on a Sam Villa 2-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron & Wand 1".  *Stylist Note: lightly spray again for added texture.

Step 2: Lightly tease the crown section.

Step 3: Smooth the crown section back and pin to secure. *Stylist Note: Crossing the pins helps to lock in place.

Step 4: Begin on the right side and take a small section of hair. Twist and gently pull from the bottom and push to make it larger.  Wrap across the back and pin.

Step 5: Continue down twisting sections and pinning them back.

Step 6: Take the hair on the left side and tie into a ponytail and slide a bun donut over it. Pin to secure. *Stylist Note: the donut creates a fuller bun.

Step 7: Separate the ponytail into smaller sections. Twist and pin onto the donut to create a soft chignon. *Stylist Note: Allow a few tendrils of hair to gently drop out for a more romantic look.
