The flippy updo
Step 1: You’ll need jaw or shoulder-length hair. Too long, and the ends will flop behind you — not chic.
Step 2: Brush wet or dry hair back into a low ponytail (but do not secure with an elastic). “Setting it low is what gives it a chignon-like elegance,” Decuers says.
Step 3: Twist it upward, French-twist-style, and secure with hairpins, a hair stick, your PDA’s stylus, whatever, and you’re good to go.
