The Undone Side Twist

 

We love this perfectly imperfect variation of the chignon.  These looks were seen on the runways of Rebecca Minkoff and Christopher Kane.  Don’t worry about being tidy with this look, as the piecier the better!

  1. Prep hair with your favorite sea salt or texture spray.
  2. Use a small amount of clay wax and work through fingers, then massage on scalp and rough up ends for added lift and texture.
  3. Create a deep side part.
  4. Gather hair to the side opposite the part.
  5. With your fingers, gently push your front hairs inside the twisted bun.
  6. Use the back of the rat tail comb to push any other hairs inside the bun; think french twist.
  7. Pin with large bobby pins with the open ends up, and criss cross pins for added support.
  8. Let hairs around face fall loose, or gently pull random strands out for added texture.
  9. Pin any remaining hairs with french pins until you’ve reached your desired look.
  10. Mist with hairspray to finish.
