Braided Chignon Tutorial

Separate hair into three sections, parting from the ears forward, and then down the middle in the back. Make two braids with the back sections and tie off with elastics.

Create desired part in front section, and separate as pictured.

Twist back one of the front sections.

Wrap around back and secure with a bobby pin.

For longer hair, continue to wrap the twist across the back of the head in a figure-8 shape. Secure with bobby pins.

Repeat steps 3 to 5 with other front section.

Take one long braid and fold in half.

Fold again across head, and secure with bobby pins.

Repeat steps 7 & 8 with second long braid.
