How to Style a Basic Chignon

All chignons require the same essential elements. Short hair cannot wear a chignon. You need either shoulder length hair or long hair. To make the chignon last long it is preferable to use styling cream. You can apply it on your fingers and start passing the fingers through the hair adding texture. You have to gather the hair at the nape of the neck and secure it with an elastic band. With this ponytail you now have to divide it into two parts, and start twisting one part of the hair by bringing it to the opposite side, wrapping the ponytail base. Secure it with bobby pins and do the same for the second part of the ponytail hair. Once you are done, use a little spray to fix the chignon in place.

How to Style a Casual Chignon

A casual chignon is really very convenient when you have dirty hair and do not want to look untidy, since you do not have much time to wash the hair. For this, again you will need to have a low ponytail, with the only difference that you do not have to have tight twists this time. Divide the hair into two parts. Take one part of the hair and wrap it around the base. Do the same with the second part in the opposite direction. Secure it with pins, but do not do that tight, since the essence of the casual chignon is to being loose.

How to Style a Knotted Chignon

This hairstyle unlike the previous ones is a little tricky so watch out carefully. If you have fine hair; you will have to apply styling mousse on your hair for a hold, so that the knotted chignon does not get undone pretty soon. First separate your hair just in front and start the procedure from the crown of your head. Smooth the hair next and make a knot by passing one of the hair strands under-over-back under again like you would do when creating a French braid. Take hair from each part and add to the closest strand and go on styling another knot. For a more elegant look the knot should be right in the center, so try not to get to your left or to the right. Keep on adding hair from both the sides till you reach the nape of your neck. Now secure the ends of the knot with an elastic band and tuck the ends under the hair with bobby pins. Use some spray to fix the knot. The effect is fascinating. Feel free to use a hair accessory or a fresh flower to highlight the elegance for this glamorous hairstyle. You will really look very romantic, girlish and so fresh with your knotted chignon.

Follow the tips above and add extra elegance and femininity to your everyday and special occasion look.
