Hair Style : Draped chignon

  • Loosely braid the ponytail-take the right strand over the centre strand, the left over the right, the right over the centre, and so on, continue to the end. Secure the end with a small band, then tuck the end under the around in a loop and secure with grips.

  • Pick up the hair on the left side and comb it in a curve back to the ponytail loop.

  • Swirl this hair over and under the loop and secure with grips. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on thr right side.
