A chignon hairstyle: you have definitely heard about it, but what is it exactly? In its essence, it is an updo that involves a bun that is situated at the neck nape though the placement of the bun varies. Typically, the parting is in the center or one of the sides or simply absent with the tresses brushed back.
Chignon updos often have a bit lifted crown that is done with teasing, but sleek looks are also quite popular.
Updos for long hair are often spiced up with tendrils that surround a woman’s face and thus make the overall look much softer. And if a woman wears the chignon so that there are no tendrils loose, it is more practical.
Now let’s explore how to sport it to appear awesome wherever you go.
