LMLIM Week 1 | A Chic Chignon

LMLIM = Living My Life In Magazines, you can read the first post about this "project" by clicking here======> Living My Life In Magazines

I have always wanted one of these in my hair.  Trying several times and failing you can imagine how excited I was to find this really quick and easy way to create a chignon.  I don't even really know how to pronounce it.  Teeheehee

There are two modifications I did however to this tip.

     1.  Since this is No Heat April for me I had to work this with some curly/wavy hair.
     2.  I didn't use any hairspray.  It leaves my hear very dry and feeling funny.

So here is the tip from the magazine and below are pictures of how my style turned out.

I actually like it and plan on wearing it a lot in the hot summers of Bakersfield.  My only issues were I'm not a fan of rubberbands in my hair because when you take them out they pull at the hair.  I also had to keep re-adjusting the actual chignon during the day because I felt pieces coming down.  Maybe that is why the hairspray would have been a good idea.  None the less I'm very happy with the result.  Let me know if you try this tip and send me some pics.
