From stunning chignons and funky double top knots to rocking her own naturally textured curls, Kara’s looks were carefully created to enhance her designer outfits and express her unique taste on fashion. CHI Haircare shows you how to recreate each of these red carpet worthy looks!

3. Twist the pigtail to the ends. Then wrap pigtail around itself until you create a small bun. Secure with bobby pins. Tip, the bun should look imperfect, so let your natural texture come through the bun.
