After seeing the side chignon
and low braided chignon
take centre stage last year, the sleek chignon is now on the cards to be top of the style charts this season. Follow our expert’s advice to nail this simple, sophisticated beauty look.
The sleek chignon is a timeless look that is more on trend than ever. ‘This style has always been a classic in every girl’s repertoire. It instantly gives your style a chic finish whilst opening up the wearer’s face. Pair with a statement pair of earrings or a choker necklace to complete the ensemble. The best bit about this hairstyle? The sleek chignon works whatever the occasion and whatever your face shape... no exceptions!’
This style will take you just minutes in the morning. ‘If your hair is naturally straight, leave them as they are. On the other hand, if your hair is curly, wavy or frizzy, use your straighteners
to smooth out any kinks. Make sure you apply a small amount of heat-protective serum before using heated appliances! Next, brush hair backwards and smooth down to the scalp. Warm a pea-sized amount of gel between your palms, then smooth over the surface, securing into a ponytail before twisting up into a chignon. Pin any flyaways with bobby pins and finish the look with a layer of hairspray for a long-lasting hold’. Our advice:
Mid-length hair is a must to achieve your desired chignon, as you’ll need to be able to tie your hair up. Mix up your style and try this out for an evening look. Right before you head out to your taxi, spritz lightly with Shine Spray
for a glossy finish. © Jean Louis David
