The best ‘get-up and go’ chignons for summer

The chignon is one of the simplest hairstyles around. Ideally, you should wear your chignon just below forehead level so that your look stays in place all day long. Want to find out about this summer’s get-up and go chignons, perfect for when you’re in a hurry? The pros reveal all.
 
The chignon is perfect for summer. ‘Simply create a low-lying ponytail at the base of the neck, then style your chignon from there. The most on-trend and practical version is the top-knot, perfect for when you’re getting showered each morning and want to keep your locks dry. Once you’ve tied your ponytail, wrap the lengths around the elastic and secure with a few bobby pins’.
 
The backcombed version of this trend can also be worn as a day-time look. ‘Rather than starting with a ponytail, simply gather your locks up onto the top of your head, twist a few strands and then secure. Don’t worry about any flyaways, as they will give you a boho-chic feel’.
 
Whatever your preferred chignon, remember that this style is big news for summer. ‘This is the only hairstyle that protects your lengths from the sun and salty ocean water. Thanks to this look, women with colored hair can come back from their vacation with the same vibrant shade they jetted off with in the first place’.
 
Our advice: Style your locks into a chignon throughout the day, then let loose and reveal natural-looking waves come evening. In fact, tying your hair up creates movement and body when let down.
