Both simple to style and ultra-feminine, the chignon is perfect for everyone and has become a must-have for busy women who want to remain stylish. Discover everything you need to know to create an on-trend messy chignon.
The messy chignon is a great alternative for those who aren’t so keen on its structured
counterpart and is ideal for updating your look. ‘The messy version is an ideal substitute to the classic take on the chignon. Looking to add some oomph to your hairstyle? The messy chignon will add body and volume! Finally, you can opt to style your chignon to one side for an asymmetric finish that is very chic’.
So how can you create this messy bun without looking dishevelled and unkempt? ‘Firstly, begin by securing your hair into a loose ponytail. This will enable you to twist your lengths around the base, securing with bobby pins for a long-lasting finish. Complete your style with an even layer of hairspray
to set everything in place’. Our advice:
Your hair needs to be at least shoulder length to create this look. Does your current hairstyle feature layers? If so, the messy chignon was made for you, as your layers
will escape the chignon naturally and create an effortless, bohemian finish. © Pixelformula © Jean Louis David
