EMMYS HAIR: Kerry Washington's Classic Chignon-inspired Updo
Celebrity hair stylist Kiyah Wright gave Actress Kerry Washington a classic chignon-inspired updo for the 64th Emmy Awards held in Los Angeles.
“She wanted to keep it unbelievably simple, just like what’s on the runways,” says Wright.
STEP 1: Prep the hair by applying Clairol Professional Jazzing in Clear to dried hair from root to tip. Let the product sit for 15 minutes and then rinse it out.
STEP 2: Using a round brush, blow dry the hair in sections until completely dried.
STEP 3: Tease the hair at the roots on top of the head and apply clip-ins in a matching hue backwards for added volume.
STEP 4: Spritz the face-framing pieces with gold hairspray for temporary sheen and brightness.
STEP 5: Create a deep side part and create a ponytail at the crown. Then twist the hair around the ponytail to create a bun.
STEP 6: Secure with pins, and loosen random pieces to create a more voluminous bun.
STEP 7: Spritz with a strong hold hairspray for long-lasting hold.
