A classic side chignon is one of the most preferred hairstyle that can give a surprisingly simple look. This style can be achieved on any type of hair, but it should by long enough to create the side chignon. It is considered to be a timeless updo which is a perfect choice for casual occasions.
To get this hairstyle, begin the styling process on a day old hair as it can be easier to form the classic side chignon with an unwashed hair. Next comb your hair straight back of the head to make a ponytail at the nape of your neck. Hold the ponytail in place using a covered hair band. Then separate the ponytail into two equal parts and brush each of them lightly with a comb. Now take one of the sections in hand and smooth it using a hairbrush. Try to twist the section under and hold it in place with a large bobby pin or hair clip. Use the same method on the other part of the ponytail that was divided earlier. At last smooth down any stray hairs using a hair brush and then spritz all over the hair with a little amount of hairspray. After completing the hairstyle, add fresh flowers or a jeweled hair stick when you are wearing this style for a special occasion. You can also create bangs with this hairstyle and swept to side of your head.
