Step 1: Preparation for a Chignon

Before you start, you need to prepare some simple tools to have a perfect chignon bun: a tail comb, four small bobby pins, and two larger bobby pins. Don’t be shocked. That’s all you need.

For a start, part your hair down the middle with that comb and tie it at the nape of your neck.

This bun works perfectly for 3-days-no-shampooed hair. However, if you have just shown, try out the Oribe dry texturizing spray to make your hair more textured and easier for the style.

Step 2:

Gently twist your hair from nape to tip, after that gradually curling it in a counterclockwise circle. Try to be careful in this step to have a perfect base of the chignon.

Step 3:

Use your index finger as the pole, keep twisting your twisted hair into a bun. Your finger will hold the bun shape in its right place.

Step 4:

We have gone through the hard part. Now, use 2 large bobby pin to get both sides of the bun fixed. To create a more natural and romantic look, gently pull and loosen the edges.

Step 5:

In this step, the bun can be more perfect by being shaped and formulized. Slip the tail come through the hair and into the end. Next, gently pull it outwards.

Step 6: Finish your Chignon

Lather up a spray cover of the Shu Uemura Art of Hair Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray to finish the look.

That’s a wrap-up for the tutorial. Practice more and be creative to be a master of chignon!
