How to Do a Flawless Chignon in 5 Easy Steps
Get a gorgeous (and timeless) updo suitable for any occasion in less than five minutes
Don't let the fancy French name intimidate you. We're willing to bet you've come across a chignon more than a few times and didn't even realize it. Chignons are defined as a knot or coil of hair arranged at the back of the head, but you can make the style your own by catering to your personality. Whether you want to rock a romantic chignon and pull a few pieces out around the face here or there, or get fancy with a braided version, a chignon is one hairstyle that is completely adaptable.
And while we love gawking at a gorgeous chignon updo that took hours to craft, we don't always have that kind of time (like when you're rushing straight to that after-work birthday bash). However, thanks to the versatile updo, simple chignons are quick to create and just as beautiful as their extravagant counterparts. So, the next time you need to up your glam but don't have a surplus of time to devote to your look, try this gorgeous chignon bun, created by celebrity stylist Shaylee Blatz.
