Low Roll Chignon

Step 1: Prep Your Hair

  • Take horizontal sections and spray a minimum of 6-8" away with Redken Quick Tease 15 backcombing finishing spray to protect the hair from heat and for maximum iron results
  • Use the Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron tapping the plates down the length to texturize the entire head of hair
  • After you have texturized the hair, brush through thoroughly with the Sam Villa Styling Brush to smooth the hair
  • Once this is completed you will be able to create amazing looks for a minimum of 4 days!


  • Purchase a quality shower cap - doing so will allow you the experience of a full shower and keeps your texture set intact
  • Use a dry shampoo such as Redken Powder Refresh 01 to deodorize your hair and remove excess oils
  • You can create amazing new looks every day with three times the volume and minimal styling time -- The Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron is a must have if you are a hair fashionista (or even if you are hair-imparied)

Step 2: Create Your Part

  • Set in your part where you naturally wear it
  • Use a Sam Villa Detangling Comb to separate the sides by combing hair off the face and letting it naturally split - this approach will give you a straight part every time

Step 3: Securing The Sides Into Low Ponytail

  • Use your Sam Villa Styling Brush and secure a loose, low ponytail with a clear elastic
  • You will need at least three inches from the nape to have room to create your shape

Step 4: Ponytail Pull-Through, Secure & Finish

  • Using your fingers, create a separation in the ponytail between your nape and the secured portion of the ponytail
  • Create a peace sign with your index and middle fingers, place through the open section and pull the length of your ponytail up and over creating a beautiful curved fold in the ponytail
  • You will then have the option to leave the length out or repeat the process again until all of the length is in a bun
  • For a secure bun, continue pulling the length up and over until it’s in a beautiful bun shape
  • Secure the bun with a long hairpin


  • When securing a shape with a hairpin begin by placing the pin thru the shape in the opposite direction, then secure it back toward the desired shape using a hook movement
  • This will allow for maximum tension and security
  • Finish with Redken fashion work 12 versatile hairspray
