Herringbone braid chignon

By Andrea Claire · December 3, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

When I was in high school there was a girl who had her hair perfectly coiffed and frozen in place - from the front - the back was flat as a board - sure it was the 80s but that was no excuse. Even before I got into hair and makeup I noticed these things and wanted to help.

At one point in time - The back of your head looks RIDICULOUS! - meant it truly looked ridiculous - case and point in the aforementioned story.

Now 'The back of your head looks RIDICULOUS!' - means your hair looks amazing!

Here is one 'fab from the back' chignon:

  1. Blow out your hair with a round brush
  2. Secure into a simple side ponytail - hide the elastic with the hair
  3. Fishtail the ponytail
  4. Wrap and pin the tail flat against your head - each time you can play with the chignon shape.

Not sure how to herringbone a.k.a fishtail? I show you here on Yahoo! Glam Up!
