HAIR || The Modern Chignon

The Chignon, close relative of the Hipster Bun is done in a similiar fashion, just in a different place on the head. You can wear your Chignon on top of the head, in the center back or to the side.  If you’re wearing it to the side, I would suggest low, loose and just below and behind the ear.  There are many variations, the epitome of modern style is messy with a bit of texture. You can personalize this look by adding your own headband, decorative comb or fresh flower. A simple black band will do or if you’re feeling a little fancier check out these beauties from Colette Malouf and Dominique Duval.  The genius part of the style on the video is, the Goody Zig Zag headband he puts in underneath the black headband, which is very hard to find.  This is the new version of that classic peice.

To  create this look you will need:

– Day old or slept in hair adds great texture

– Hair pins that match the shade of your hair

– Elastic ponytail holder

– Headband or accessory of your choice

– Hairspray
