Monique Lhuillier’s Bridal Fashion Show — Get The Exact Classic Chignons From The Runway

Hairstylist Nina Dimachki used Kérastase products to achieve the classic chignons seen at the show. Here’s the how-to:

“To prep the hair, Nina applied a quarter size of Ciment Thérmique to the hair, followed by a generous amount of Spray-À-Porter.

Once the hair was prepped, Nina blow dried it with a bristle finishing brush, pulling the hair away from the face.

She then applied a light veil of Powder Bluff, giving the hair a dry, matte effect.

Then she gathered the hair at the nape of the neck with a hair ties, and sprayed the lengths of ponytail with additional Powder Bluff to enhance the dry, matte effect.

Once the hair was twisted into the chignons, shape she sprayed it with Laque Dentelle to hold.”
