HOW-TO: The Mohawk Chignon

We admit that wearing our hair up in summer can sometimes feel dull and boring. So we wrangled in Kylee Heath to help us bring you creative ways to skip the basic pony and experiment with something fresh, like the Mohawk Chignon in just a few easy steps.

Begin on dry hair with your natural texture- this style works great on freshly washed or second day hair!

Use a rat tail comb to create a triangular shaped section from the arch of each eyebrow to the point at the top of your head where you would like your chignon to start. Secure with an elastic.

Create a second pony from the top of each ear to the center of the back of the head. Secure with another elastic.

Secure remaining hair with another elastic so you are left with 3 ponytails.

Use your rat tail comb to tease the hair in each pony. If hair is too silky, spray dry shampoo or dry texture spray before teasing. Then twist each pony into a bun and secure with french pins.
