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