To re-create this look, mold and tousle hair at the top, then gather it tightly at the nape of the neck with a pretty satin ribbon. Don’t forget to condition with Philip B. Lovin’ Leave-in Conditioning Crème.

When warm weather hits, you want the hair off the face. But it should never be boring and always suggest movement, like with this textured chignon. Add some shine with Bumble & Bumble Treatment Finishing Balm.
