Wedding Hairstyles - how to Chignon Bun Updo Hairstyles

The most requested and popular wedding hairstyle updo is the classic, chic Chignon Coiffure bun, so I thought for this week’s hair tutorial, I would show you how you can make a modern side Chignon updo hairstyle bun  (low Sock bun) on long to medium hair at home to wear to any formal occasion without spending a fortune at the hair salon.

Step 1:
As always, doing updo hairstyle is easier on wavy hair, so curl your hair using a 1/2 inch curling iron if you have pin straight, or very slippery, heathy hair (Asian).  I used my trusty Cortex Curling Iron on my own hair. :)

Step 2: (look at the photos below, if you get confused – click to expand. :) )

  • Tie the bottom half of your hair.
  • Hair spray your hair to clean up the flyaways/baby hair.
  • Tease the heck out of the pony tail.
  • Smooth down the top layers with a brush.
  • Gently roll down the hair and pin it to the low nape area.

 Step 3:
Get organized: clip away the wispy hairs you want to leave out of your Chignon updo.

I part my bangs on the right side, so if this is how you part yours, follow this tutorial – if you part it on the left side, do the opposite.

  • Tease the heck out of your Crown area so that there is something for your bobby pins to grab onto.
  • Smooth down the RIGHT side
  • Hair spray
  • Pin it to the back, right above where you made that small Chignon in step 2.

Step 4: 

  • Tease then smooth down the hair on the Crown .
  • Bobby pin the Crown hair to the top of your head.   Pull up and puff up to create volume.
  • Smooth down the Left side
  • Now, grab the Crown Bundle and the Left Bundle and twist these 2 bundles together – twice.  Doing this should have given you some interesting effect to your Chignon Hairstyle Coiffure Updo and should have covered up the bobby pins.
  • Clip the Crown bundle again to the top.
  • Now, pin the Left bundle down.
