Emma Watson's Modern Twist on a Classic Chignon!
First off… I LOVE everything about Emma Watson’s Golden Globe look. Everything was taken from classic to modern once she turned around. On top of her fabulous outfit, I’m loving her spin on the chignon. Loving this messy choppy version of this classic style and here’s an awesome how-to by Vidal Sassoon stylist Shelley Brien using Vidal Sassoon Pro Series
The Look: Soft Chignon with a Modern Twist
Since it’s the first time that Emma Watson is attending the Golden Globes, Emma and Shelley wanted to create a classic Hollywood look but give it a modern twist. To show off the dress’s low back, Shelley thought a chic chignon would be the perfect style to complement her modern look. Emma’s striking look was the biggest fashion statement on the red carpet!
Here’s how Shelley created Emma’s look:
1.First spray Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray to damp hair. Take a medium sized boar bristle round brush and blow dry hair so that it’s straight and smooth.
2.Once hair is dry, create a side part and then spray Vidal Sassoon Pro Series ColorFinity Dry Shampoo in Rich Darks to the roots to create extra volume.
3.Backcomb the hair near the front of your face to create texture and then brush all the hair back until it’s smooth. Maintaining the side part, pull hair back into a low ponytail and then wrap hair loosely into a chignon. Wrap hair similar to a bun and then pin in place.
4.Pull a few pieces of hair in the front and tuck behind the ear to create a more modern, tousled look.
5.To finish, spray hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray to leave it with a sleek, finished look.
