Instead of a typical French twist at Chanel, hair guru Sam McKnight celebrated the dry wrap, an elegant swirl traditionally used by black women to protect the hair under a scarf or wig. McKnight raked mousse from roots to tips and tamed frizz along the hairline with pomade, then drew a center part down the back of the hair. Starting on the left side, he swept up strands and pinned them in place as he swirled the hair into a flat, circular pattern. Polish off your style and fight flyaways with a gleam-giver, such as L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Lustrous Oil Serum .
