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