Subtle and sleek, the chignon is one of the more elegant of 2013’s hairstyles.

This particular interpretation – a low knotted Spanish chignon – was the signature hairstyle created by Guido Palau for Loewe’s spring 2013 show. The hairstyle reflected the modern and sleek collection that was inspired by Spain. In this hairstyle, the hair is parted right in the middle and is pulled over the ears to give the look more character.

It is probably one of the easiest hairstyle up do’s that you can do on your own if you are in a hurry or if you want a simple hairstyle that looks very chic and beautiful. Read more to learn about the steps on how to do it yourself.

How to: Loewe’s low Spanish chignon

Apply Redken’s full effect 07 from roots to tips on damp hair and blow dry it until it is straight.
With a comb, part your hair right in the middle. Make sure it is a straight, clean parting.
Apply a shine serum from the top section of the hair until the ends of it. The Redken team at Loewe used glass 01 serum.
Using a paddle brush, pull hair back into a low, smooth, clean ponytail. Cover the tops of the ears with some hair to get the full effect of the Loewe Spanish-inspired hairstyle.

Tightly twist the ponytail up to form a low bun. Secure it with pins once it is tight and smooth.

Tame any fly-aways and keep the chignon in place by freely spraying on hairspray. Guido and team used Redken’s forceful 23 for a very firm hold and added shine.
