Tips on achieving this celebrity hairstyle:
Chignon hairstyles are fairly easy to do, and sometimes can be confused with the bun hairstyle as they have similar looks. A chignon hairstyle doesn’t focus as much on the “sleek bun” look you often associate with ballerinas and the like. One of the key things to have for this hairstyle are coated bobby pins in similar color to your hair. A good hold or shine spray strength depending on how long you are going to have the hairstyle (just a few hours, all night I stick to a good quality holding spray that doesn’t weigh your hair down or make it obvious your hair is so stiff!). Lastly a good but similar color ouchless hair band to hold the base of the chignon.
