A wreath-like braid and straight little bits in front make Monet Mazar's head-hugging chignon look classic yet current.
Step 1: Start with straight, dry hair. Section off and set aside a four-inch wide by two-inch deep chunk of hair at your front hairline.
Step 2: Leaving a few bits out in front and avoiding the set-aside section, sweep the rest of your hair back and twist until it buckles upon itself to form a bun at the back of your head. Tuck the ends in and pin the bun into place.
Step 3: Create a three-strand braid with the isolated section in front and wrap the braid around your head, pinning the ends into place.
