How To Create A Side Chignon, Plus A Giveaway

I love wearing my hair down with texture or as it was called in my last holiday hair how to video, "bends," but a chic chignon is always a good option for upcoming holiday parties.  After all, I don't think there's anything sexier than showing off your neck and décolletage.  Here's an easy how-to from Dove along with a giveaway worth $380 that'll help you achieve the perfect party hairstyle.  Good luck!

  1. PREP: Wash your hair with Dove® Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner to help nurture damaged strands and smooth out your hair
  2. DRY: Blow dry your hair, using your fingers to separate sections
  3. CURL: Spray Dove® Style+Care Thermal Replenishment Spray on 3-inch sections of your hair and wrap them around a 2-inch curling iron
  4. SEPARATE: Rake a dime-size amount of Dove® Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum through your hair to break up the waves and add shine
  5. LOOP & SECURE: Pull your hair back and braid it.  Run a bobby pin through the elastic at the base of the braid, loop it up and secure it messily with the bobby pin.  Allow pieces to fall out.
  6. FINISH:Finish the look with Dove® Style+Care™ Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray
All Dove products are available at Walmart.
