How To Video:
Chignon

Chic Chignon (in under 2 minutes) via celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin

Tools Needed: Mason Pearson brush, rattail comb, bungee chord band with hooks or 2 regular rubberbands, large french hair pins, hairspray.

What I used: Mason Pearson brush, Rattail comb, Goodie Ouchless No Metal Gentle Elastics, French hair pins, L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray

Directions:
1. For thick haired girls you can do this when your hair is damp. Thin to medium texture, blow-dry upside down while using a Mason Pearson brush to create volume.
2. Make a center part and pull hair together into a tight low ponytail.
3. Tease the ends of your hair with fingers or a comb.
4. Twist in a clockwise direction, secure with french pins.
5. Spritz hairspray for hold.

TIP: Pull pieces of hair out to make the bun bigger once secure. 

Alternative Daytime Chic Chignon: Try a higher chignon. Make a tight ponytail that, in profile, is at the same height as your eyebrows. Make sure to tease your ends with a brush, twist hair in a clockwise direction, or if hair is long enough twist the hair in a knot.  use french hair pins to secure the bun.   For variation, take your brush and gently brush away from your ponytail to give texture or before you make a pony, crimp your roots.

    Thanks a million. I’ve had a chignon forever & never really knew how to use it. Perfect chic look for my thick hair.

  7. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with
    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or
    did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing,
    it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays.
