Angular Braid Chignon

1 - Have your hair down.  It doesn't matter if it's curly or straight.  This style can be done on hair neck length or longer.

2 - Create a round parting from ear to ear above your occipital bone (back of head).  Start a ponytail, only pulling it through to an inch or two from the ends of your hair.

3 - Loop the rubber band and pull halfway through.  Continue to do this until your rubber band is too tight to do it anymore.

4 - Lightly pull on all of the half ponytails to stretch and dissect it.

5 - Create a round parting from ear to ear across the crown of your head.  Start a ponytail, only pulling it through to an inch or two from the ends of your hair.

6 - Repeat Steps 3.

7 - Repeat Step 4.

8 - Take the remaining hair to create a three strand braid.  Over-direct it to the back right side of your head.  Braid to the ends.

9 - Lay the braid over the top of the ponies and pull the ends under the bottom of the ponies.

10 - Bobby pin the ends securely into the base of one of your ponies.  On any areas "sticking out", take a bobby pin (without opening it up) and weave it through a few pieces of hair pushing the pin directly to the head.

*Before you start any style, it is important you use the correct shampoo, conditioner and styling product to create a style that will be long lasting.  For this style I used Aquage 

Sea Extend Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner

Uplifting Foam

D

etailing Creme

, Smoothing Brush and 

Finishing Spray

.  Ask your stylist what is best for you or you may leave me a comment with questions.
