Whether she’s looking for a little class or a lot of sass—guess what? There’s an updo for that. But how do you know what pulled back style is perfect for your client? EASY! How about this classic, twisted chignon? It’s elegant, sexy and the winning look from Miss Universe 2015—so you know she’s going to love it! Here’s how it’s done:

1. Prep and spray her hair with CHI Magnified Volume Extra Firm Hair Spray to provide control and added volume, while brushing the hair into a sleek, low ponytail.

2. Take a small section from the ponytail and wrap it around the base of the band and secure it with bobby pins to cover the band.

3. Take a small section from the ponytail and wrap it around the base of the band and secure it with bobby pins to cover the band. Then apply a filler piece shaped into a crescent and secure with pins.

4.Next, apply a small amount of CHI Pliable Polish to the ponytail. Take sections to sweep up and over the filler, securing with additional bobby pins.

5. To finish the style, spray the hair with Miss Universe Style Illuminate’s Spotlight Shine Spray for added shine and glisten.

Of course all of the women competing in this year’s Miss Universe Pageant were stunning, but the winner of it all took home the crown—literally.  Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach from the Philippines was crowned Miss Universe, so OF COURSE BTC had to get the how-to for her winning style. Her “CHI-gnon” was created by Farouk Systems Master Level Artist, Lauren Young. Inspired by Pia’s evening gown and excellent bone structure, Lauren wanted to make sure Pia’s hair highlighted everything about her winning moment.
