    1. Apply styling mousse to your towel-dry hair to increase its manageability.

    2. Use a small amount of hair oil to give your hair alluring lustre.
    Be sure to work the hair oil only through the ends of your hair.
    No oil should be put on the scalp or the hair close to the roots.

    3. Gather your hair on one side of the lower neck in a ponytail.
    Leave out a 3’’-wide section of hair in front of the ponytail.
    Use a curling iron to create soft waves in this section of hair.

    4. Use hairspray to give these soft waves more hold.
    Take this front section of hair and wrap it around the ponytail base.
    Then secure it with hair grips.

    5. Now twist the ponytail until it curls into a chignon.
    The chignon should cover the ear and it should be secured with hair grips.

    6. The side-chignon will look softer and more casual after slightly pulling opposite loops outward.

    7. Use sufficient hairspray to keep the side-chignon intact while you enjoy your day.
