Low Chignon Hair Tutorial


This is one of those hairstyles that doesn't look nearly as polished and put together until the very, very end. As you are styling, you may think to yourself, "Oh man. This is a disaster." Press on, my friend. You will fix everything up at the end.

    3. Hi, Jason :) I'm pretty sure the term "virgin hair" refers to undyed, unchemicalized hair.

  32. Just found your blog yesterday, and love it! Thx for the tutorials on simple but spectacular hair. I have brown/auburn hair, and have been looking for a texturizing powder that doesn't add a white "cloud" look to my hair. The white powders show up on my hair no matter how little I use, or how well I work them in. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is Soooo pretty!!!! Can't wait to give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Do you have any suggestions for how to make this style work for long hair?

  37. I have really long hair and after experimenting for ages I might have a couple of tips for you other ladies with long hair. You may not need to tease if you already have lots of hair, but do use a texturising product. When you pull the bun through, pull it through just to the size of the chignon you want at the end. There will be lots of hair hanging out the bottom, just leave it for now. When you cross the sides over they will also leave long ends hanging out the bottom of your bun. Pin them in place. Then grab another clear elastic, gather all the hair hanging loose from the bottom of the bun and wrap it up around your bun to the top, and secure the whole thing at the base with your elastic. Then finish the hairstyle as the tutorial says, pinning at the top, bottom and sides. Also, because your hair will be much heavier you'll need loads of pinning to hold it in place. I hope that makes sense and helps you out if you have long hair like mine.

  41. I've tried the texturizing powder before and found it really hard to wash out of my hair?! I have a Unite powder and love it while it's in, but when I try to wash it out my shampoo will barely lather and it takes a few washes (over a few days) before my hair feels really clean again. Is it just this brand or are all texturizing powders like this? I don't use it much because of the hassle of getting it out :(

  52. Just wore this style to a wedding. Simple and elegant. Still have some fine tuning to do (I must have thick hair because I had trouble pinning the bun up closer to my head. The bobby pins would fall out. So I just tried it with less amounts of hair and that seemed to work. I had so many bobby pins in at one point, I couldn't fit more, or they would push others out.) Also want to try the texturizing powder next time. Thanks so much for your awesome tutorials! Here's a pic of my 'low chignon' do: http://pinterest.com/pin/5418462024158055/

  72. Hey Kate!

    I love this look! I would like some advice on how to prep my hair. I have natural wave to my hair and it's about the same length as your is here. My question is whether or not to blow dry and curl my hair with a curling iron or if you think I should air dry with my natural texture. Thanks!

By the way I absolutely love all of your tutorials!!
