HOW-TO: A Slick and Twisted Chignon with Laura Polko
If there’s a red carpet starlet who always makes the headline, it’s the talented Jennifer Lawrence, and last week’s Golden Globe look was no exception. A departure from her signature wavy strands, J Law opted for a sleek, chic, and masculine side part paired with a slick twist in the back. Curious how you can master this hairstyle at home? Celebrity hairstylist, Laura Polko, says it’s easier than you think if the hair is hydrated with MarulaOil! Just take a look at her simple steps below.
On air dried or previously styled hair, begin by creating a deep side part over the arch of one eyebrow, then working MarulaOil Rare Oil Treatment through the hair from root to tip.
On the side of the parting, take the section in front of the ear. and backbrush at the root for hold with the Paul Mitchell 413 Sculpting Brush.
Split hair into two sections and then twist each section in the same direction (creating a rope twist braid).
Create a rope twist braid by twisting each strand around the other in the opposite direction of the two twists, then securing the ends with an elastic.
On the opposite side, brush the hair back then spray generously with Awapuhi Wild Ginger Finishing Spray.
Create the same rope twist braid on the opposite side, using more MarulaOil Rare Oil Treatment through the ends if needed.
Pull apart the sides of the braid with your fingers.
Loop the two sides together, then use french pins to pin into place.
Move over J Law, there’s a new leading lady in town!
