1. The Beehive Inspired Chignon

We like to say this beehive-inspired chignon is boho meets romance. The textured look and volume of this style is what gives this iteration of the chignon a unique look. To create the look, start with clean hair. However, you can also do this on second-day hair by refreshing with a dry shampoo. Tease the hair from ends up to create texture and volume at the root of your hair.

Alternatively, if you have naturally wavy hair, spray Catwalk By TIGI Texturising Sea Salt Spray on your hair to enhance and awaken the natural texture of your hair. Allow hair to dry before pinning it up into your beehive-inspired chignon.

2. The Classic Picturesque Chignon

Going for a clean and classy look for your wedding day, but with a bit of a twist? This spin on the classic chignon is simple, yet, romantic and most of all, pretty as can be. Start by washing hair with a wash and care system that reduces frizz like Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner as you want your hair to be as smooth as possible before creating your picturesque chignon style. Blowdry your hair and gather into a low ponytail. Wrap the ends of your hair into a coiled bun and secure with hairpins.
