The chignon is a timeless classic updo! It can be made uber glamorous being
pulled back and sleek or can be left a little more ‘messy glam’ by creating
tousled hair with some loose curls!
To achieve this look I would recommend using 16-18" or
20-22" length extensions to keep the bun a manageable size! First decide
if you’re going straight or curly, after using a heat protection product and
following the Headkandy care guide, curl or straighten your own hair and
extensions. After fitting your extensions pull all your hair into a loose pony,
either at the nape of your neck or to the side - about 2 inches behind your
ear! I find using a thin hair elastic helps secure the whole chignon when you
have finished and it is very easy to hide.
by splitting your pony into 2 sections and simply wrap them around each other!
Twist one to the right and the other the left, secure each twist with hair
grips and hairspray or smoothing serum! To achieve the tousled look simply
leave your hair loose framing your face, then when you have wrapped your hair
pull out a few ends to leave some flowing curls! Or cheat by using your single
wefts and have some longer flowing curls :)
