The chignon is very easy to master, easier than it may look. The cool thing about them is you can place them anywhere you want on the head – remember to maintain balance. The profile will make the viewer stop and wonder how you created it!
First, it’s all about the ponytail. If you have not mastered the pony, watch this video first. The hair needs to be slick to the head and pony needs to be smooth as silk!

Once you have your ponytail secured we can begin:
Spray Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo to the ponytail on both sides to give the pony substance
Brush through both sides of the pony with the Styling Brush – top and underneath
Place a hair friendly elastic to mid shaft of the ponytail, twist and bring the bottom half through
HOT TIP – Be sure not to twist the hair or you will loose the tension and the hair will buckle above the elastic
Place a grip into the elastic (you just placed at the mid shaft) pointing upward
Place the side of your hand onto the upper portion of the ponytail, fold the hair over your hand to see where you want the chignon to sit
HOT TIP – Sam is placing his chignons vertically
One you have the chignon in place slide a grip in to secure it in the area you want it to sit on the head
Bring the remainder of the ponytail back around and secure it with another grip
Spread the chignon out to get it to your liking and be sure to diminish any separations – you want the hair to be very smooth
Secure the top of the chignon with another grip pointing downward inside the roll
Spray the chignon with Redken Fashion Work 12 versatile spray – be sure to spray in the direction the hair is moving
At this point you have many options to work the remainder of the ponytail into your style. Get creative but keep it simple. The beauty of this look is the simplicity as well as the mystery of how it was created.

#btcwhatwouldyoudo? Our Salon in the past couple of years has been having issues with clients bringing their children in while they're getting a service done. We only don't like this at night time when we are very busy . We are not rude to the children however we do ask that they stay seated due to its some of our busiest times of the day and night. They're also Tools around that can hurt them. We have gotten to complaints from the mothers that we were rude to the children and we are not allowed to tell them how to act. What is a nice way to tell / post that we don't allow children in the salon after 5 p.m. we want all of our clients that are coming in after work to be able to relax without toddlers or young children running and screaming around them. Thank you #behindthechair #hairstylist #hairsalon #salonlife
