This classy, classically-inspired up-style combines elements of the classic chignon with full-volume styling. The hair is smoothed back along the scalp to the crown and back-combed to create a large, soft mass, which is turned under and secured against the base of the style. A slim lock of hair is used to mask the base of the up-style anchor points and the style is plied with an ultra-hold spray to assure a clean, sharp finish.
The keys here are focusing on a smooth finish to the style. The ends of the hair may be softly curled to create added volume and structure to the up-swept portion of the hair, but the back-combing should be carefully concealed in the interior so as to maintain the clean silhouette of the hairstyle.
