'Go There' Wednesdays: The Sicilian Chignon

We loved the ultra-feminine pieces at Dolce & Gabbana's fall 2011 show this Sunday (think lace, sequins, and the sexiest sheaths, ever), but the hair truly stopped the show. Models like Chanel Iman sported low, loosely twisted chignons that struck a perfect balance between uptown glam and downtown cool. "It's how I'd imagine a Sicilian woman would put her hair up for the day... in a soft updo," says Guido, Redken Creative Consultant.

To get the look, spritz dry roots with Redken Layer Lift 07 ($14.95, folica.com), and roll hair in four large hot rollers at the crown. When cool, remove rollers, create a center part and lightly twist sections on either side of the head until they meet in the back; secure with pins. Gather rest of hair and twist into a low chignon, letting pieces fall out around the face.
