Chignon for Fine Hair

With the help of a mesh bun accessory, its easy to make a chignon for fine hair look thicker and fuller.  Its tough to get a really full looking bun when you have fine hair, these bun accessories really help fill the gap.

Start out by putting your hair in a high pony tail.  Make sure the hair is tight and smooth up into the ponytail.  Wrap the tie around enough times that you are sure it won’t slip. Place ponytail through the hole of the bun.

There needs to be enough length in hair to wrap around the bun in order to camouflage the mesh bun accessory.  Fan/spread the hair out around the mesh bun to hide the bun accessory.  Try to get the hair spread out evenly and smoothly around the bun.  After hair is spread you can secure the hair with another ponytail holder or bobby pins.
If you use the ponytail method,  hold hair spread over the bun with one hand, with the other hand stretch the ponytail holder over the whole bun. This will keep hair tight around the bun. When you finish this step you will have the ends of hair sticking out, wrap the hairs around the bun in a circular motion and secure with bobby pins.
If you use the bobby pin method (this is the method used on this model) after spreading the hair over the bun secure with bobby pins at the base, moving in a circular motion around the bun until all hairs are wrapped at the base of bun.
