How to: Prada’s slick, low chignon

Austere elegance is what best describes the hairstyle we spotted at the Prada fall 2014 show at Milan fashion week. Created by Redken’s Guido Palau, this 2014 hairstyle mixes a slick, wet look finish and sharp center part with a sophisticated low chignon.

1. Start by creating a clean center part on your hair. For a neat result, you can use the sharp end of a rat tail comb.

2. Next, use a styling cream to create the slick texture. Apply it section by section, from roots to ends so you can easily work with your hair.

3. Gather your hair into a tight low ponytail using your fingers rather than a comb to keep some texture. Secure with an elastic.

4. Take the ponytail then twist it into a ballerina bun and hold it into place with pins.

While this look may be simple and easy to do, it still is a headturner. The mix of austerity and elegance brings out a certain sophistication that will surely amp up any ensemble.
