A chignon is a basic hair bun. There are so many different ways to create a chignon, and you can go very simple or super glamorous. I’m going to show you a very quick and simple way of how I create my chignon. This tutorial should not take you more than five minutes to do.
Step 2: Backcomb all of your hair so it gets a lot of body and volume. I used a boar bristle brush from Sephora.
Step 3: Lastly, twist hair tightly over the elastic band/hair tie and secure it with bobby pins as you wrap it around. Add hair accessories if you like. I clipped on my white bow (American Apparel).
You’re finished! If you want a more undone look, twist the hair lightly around the elastic band.
