To recreate this elegant Holiday Chignon you will need:

  • Hair elastics
  • Hair Brush
  • Hair Pins
  • Hair accessories of choice

Step 1:

Start with your hair down and free of knots. Take half of your hair and pull it up into a half-up ponytail and tie it in place with an elastic.


Step 2:

Split the remaining half of your hair into two sections.


Step 3:

Take one section of hair and pull it over the ponytail and through a hole you create with your fingers above the elastic.


Step 4:

Secure that section of hair with the half-up ponytail with an elastic.


Step 5:

Repeat steps three and four with the remaining section of hair.


Step 6:

Split the final ponytail in two and twist the sections together securing it with an elastic.


Step 7:

Fold the twist under the nape and pin it in place.

Pro Tip: Use hairspray and a soft toothbrush to gently get rid of any flyways.


Step 8:

Hold the base of your ponytail and gently tug the hairs from your crown to add volume to roots.


Step 9:

Add a festive accessory of your choice.
