The chignon bun
is one of the season's biggest trends and can be spotted on heads everywhere! While it is often worn with a few loose strands for a boho effect
, the chignon bun is also the perfect way to add an elegant touch to your hairstyle. You just need to know how to chic it up! Who is it for?
For anyone looking to highlight their best features and slim down their face. The chic chignon bun can be worn for any occasion: a night out, a day at the office, a wedding
, you name it. For the perfect chic effect, the chignon bun should be worn on the top of the head. In the casual version of this hairstyle you'd tend to leave out a few pieces for a laid-back effect, but this chic version is a lot neater. Chic up a chignon bun.
Forget the messy chignon bun. For a perfectly chic finish, it needs to be neat and structured. To add a bit of volume and avoid your roots looking flat, backcomb your hair. Next, tie it into a high ponytail. Want to pump up the volume in the chignon bun itself? Get your hands on a hair donut. Pull your ponytail through it then backcomb
your mid-lengths to create texture. Next, cover your hair donut with your hair then roll sections around the base so it is no longer visible. If there are still a few pieces of hair sticking out, fix in place with hair pins
, sliding them into the chignon to hide them. Hold it all in place with a touch of hairspray. © Pixelformula/Oscar de la Renta prêt-à-porter show, Spring-Summer 2011 © Jean Louis David
