EXTENSIONS & CHIGNONS: 3 ESSENTIAL TIPS

Tip 1: Backcomb the ponytail to create a bigger, more secure bun. If the hair is slippery straight or on the fine side, this is especially helpful. A little bit of teasing not only creates the illusion of more hair, it gives it enough grip to stay up all day or night.

Tip 2: Jackknife the bobby pins into the hair to keep it in place. If you're using bobby pins to create the bun, here's how to make it super secure: Push the feet of the bobby pin up through the edge of the bun and then jackknife the bobby pin back down, towards the center of the bun.

Tip 3: Wrap or tuck the bun tightly and then loosen it a bit with your fingers. Most of us want a little bit of fuzz or messiness in an updo, but if you start messy, your chignon or topknot (or whatever type of bun you're creating) will get really messy by the end of the night. Start with a tighter, more secure bun and then loosen strands lightly with your fingers to make it look less perfect.

Some examples:
- Red heads - 90,000 hair follicles
- Black hair - 110,000 hair follicles
- Blond hair - 130,000 hair follicles
