Low chignon - step-by-step guide by Leo Bancroft
Begin the style by separating two sections of hair from each side of the head and secure with a clear elastic. Ensure that a gap is left in the middle of the two sections as this is essential for step 4.
Brush the hair with a paddle brush like the Leo Bancroft Paddle Brush, spraying the brush with Leo Bancroft Secretly Styled firm hold hairspray to prevent any stray hairs. (This technique is used for a sleek and tidy variation).
If you fancy something a little messier, begin with wavy hair and avoid brushing through, otherwise the wave will become frizz.
Slightly tease the sectioned hair upwards with a comb as this will create the body of the bun.
Secure the remaining hair with a clear elastic, leaving at least an inch and a half of hair at the end.
Bring the underneath section of hair up and through the gap left in step 1, and secure the excess hair with bobby pins. Give the style an extra spritz of hairspray to ensure the style is secure.
