Step One: Make a side part. On the side with the part, curl from midshaft
to end, tucking hair behind your ear.

Step Two: On the other side of the part, curl your hair away from your
face from root to end.

Step Three: Gently loosen curls by running your fingers through your hair.
Set with a light-hold hairspray.

Knotted Chignon

Step One: Smooth on styling cream, then blow-dry. Divide hair into two
sections and knot together.

Step Two: Knot the two sections together one more time. (You should still
have 2- to 3-inch ends.)

Step Three: Tuck the ends under the knot, pinning in place with bobby pins, and use a little hairspray.
