1. Add texture.
Spritz a volumizer on clean, dry roots. Set strands in medium-size rollers, heat them with a blow-dryer, then remove after 10 minutes. Mist all over with a light hair spray. Divide hair into three even sections: two evenly parted sections from hairline to crown, and one from the crown back.

2. Create a bun.
Tease the back section and smooth any tangles with a paddle brush. Next, create a low ponytail. Loosely wrap the tail around the elastic in a clockwise direction, pinning pieces as you go (hide the pins under hair).

3. Smooth the sides.
To create the look of a traditional chignon, pull the right front section diagonally over the elastic to the left side, then under the bun, and secure with pins. Repeat on the left side.
