I love myself a chignon – if done right, it can look incredibly chic and effortless. It’s no wonder the word actually comes from the French phrase “chignon du cou,” which means nape of the neck. There are a handful of great tutorials out there that are incredibly easy to follow: from the tuck and roll chignon to the asymmetrical chignon to the braided chignon. And unless you’re walking down the aisle, a little loose and a bit messy is the way to go.
