Get the Look: Sleek and Modern Chignon

Chic and modern chignons ruled the runway at Naeem Khan's Fall 2020 New York Fashion Week Show.

Jon Reyman for Aveda and Dyson started by prepping the hair with Aveda’s new Nutriplenish Leave-In Conditioner to provide hydration, shine and protection against heat styling. Next, he used Volumizing Tonic throughout the lengths of the hair to add additional weight, a slight hold and to create volume throughout.
