Medium Hair Chignon in Naples
Don't be intimidated by the word "chignon." It's really just a fancy French term for bun—and they're perfect for bad hair days and last-minute updos.
The Classic Chignon...
Use hairspray to keep the bun in place. A medium-hold hairspray should do the trick, but if you have very long or thick hair, you may consider using extra-strength hairspray. You may also need to use several hair pins, particularly if you have very thick hair.
- Run a brush through to make sure that your hair is as snag-free as possible. Smooth, tangle-free hair is easier to work with when creating chignons. Pull your hair back into a tight, low ponytail. Make sure it's centered. Secure it with a good hair tie.
- Pull the hair apart so that you form two equally-sized ponytails. Hold one ponytail in each hand
- Tie the two ponytails together. You want the ponytails to form a loose knot. Smooth down any hairs that may have gotten ruffled when creating your knot.
- Secure the ends of the knot. Take one end and wrap it around the right side of the knot you have formed. Tuck it under or against the knot (that not looks more like a bun) and secure it with a hair pin. Do the same thing with the other end, only wrap it around the left side of the knot/bun.
