How To do a Twisted Chignon On Yourself Hairstyle

Twisted Chignon This is one of my favorite hairstyles. It’s so neat and polished looking, but it has such a gorgeous shape, so it’s still fun and feminine. I also love that you don’t need any curls to make this hairstyle work. Granted, every hairstyle looks better with some curls in it, but if you’re in a hurry to look nice and you don’t have extra time to spend on curling your hair, this is the perfect style!

 

1. Take a section of hair from one side of the front and pin it in the back by sliding your bobby pin in horizontally. Slide in another bobby pin, crisscrossing the two.

 

 

2. Take another small section of hair from the same side of the front and repeat.

 

3. Take a section of hair from behind your ear on the opposite side and begin rolling it around two fingers. Pin that roll to your head by sliding in a bobby pin where your finger starts, angling it up and toward the side the hair came from.

 

4. Continue taking small sections of hair and guiding them with your fingers and thumb into a nicely shaped roll. Pin as you go, and make sure to cover that first set of bobby pins we put up in steps 1 and 2.

 

5. If there is an obvious hole or gap at the bottom of your twist, take a small section near the nape of your neck and twist it up to hide the gap. Secure with bobby pins. Large bobby pins may come in handy!

 

6. Take the rest of the hair that’s still down, and divide it into two equal sections.

 

7. Loosely twist the sections of hair together, and fluff them up using a rattail comb. Secure with a clear elastic band.

 

8. Take that twist up and over the pinned hair, placing it gently on top of the seam. When you get to the other side, tuck the ends down inside the hole of the first roll. Using this twist to finish off the style not only adds interest but also hides any gaps or pins from the previous steps.
