With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s time to start brainstorming the perfect hairstyle for your date night! Using Dry Shampoo, Strong Hold Hairspray, Smoothing Serum, and an Infrared Curling Iron, you can create the dreamiest of hairstyles.This romantic braided chignon is the perfect look for a fancy dinner date or a night out on the town.
Apply Dry Shampoo at the roots for added texture. Then apply Smoothing Serum from the mid-shaft to ends for a sleek, lightweight shine.
Part the hair into four sections (pictured below).
Use a mini crimper to add some texture and volume at the roots. Be sure to keep heat away from extension tape strips or fusion bonds. If you don’t have a crimper, boost volume using a teasing brush.
Pin top section into a little bouffant.
Create three braids using the back section of hair.
Gently pull on the sides of each braid to make them look fuller.
Wrap the right braid around the middle braid and pin into place.
Repeat step 7 with the left braid.
Wrap the middle braid into a spiral in the center and pin it into place.
Twist the front right section of hair inward, leaving a couple of face-framing pieces behind. Then pull it back and pin it.
Repeat step 10, but on the left side.
Curl remaining hair, using the Infrared Curling Iron.
Add in some decorative pins or clips to make the hairstyle pop. Finish with Strong Hold Hairspray.
And there you have it! A gorgeous braided chignon hairstyle, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
