If you're looking to bring new life or add an interesting edge to an outfit, the wet look chignon might be the hairstyle for you! This hairstyle is an updated version of an old classic, and the best part? It's super simple to create at home. The chignon works for every look, from androgynous minimalist to sultry seductress, so what are you waiting for?

Upgrade your updo

Healthy hair is the key to pulling off this look, so be sure to start with a purifying shampoo to clear away any product build-up. Next, replenish the hair and lock in moisture with a deeply nourishing conditioner. As for styling, there are many options to choose from! While gel is probably the first product most people would turn to, serums and oils can work just as well for this hairstyle!

Distribute the product between your palms and then run your hands through your hair, focusing primarily on the roots. Your hair should look "wet" at this point.

Next, tie your hair into a low ponytail with a hair tie (one that's clear or the same color as your hair will be the most discrete). Next, twist the hair so it's smooth and wrap it around the place where you secured the ponytail, creating a classic chignon. Be sure to tuck any smaller pieces of hair from around the ears back and secure with gel or hairspray if needed.

If you've used a hardening gel, you won't need hairspray. Otherwise, give your hair a spritz to give the style extra hold, and carry a travel-sized bottle of styling product with you through the day in case you need a touch up!
