Chignon Hair Tutorial

Chignon hair, don't care! Today's hair tutorial for a messy side swept chignon is actually a twofer because I've also included a quick tutorial for my new favorite statement piece... a copper DIY hair accessory that I am completely into. Hope you will be too.

  • hair texturized optional
  • bobby pins


  • Secure your hair.
  • Secure your hair in a low pony at the nape of your neck, slightly to one side to have room for your hair accessory.
  • Tease the pony.
  • Lightly tease your pony (not very much, you don't want it to look teased) and split it into two sections.
  • Wrap and bobby pin.
  • Loosely wrap your first section and secure with a bobby pin. Do the same with your second section, wrapping it around the already pinned hair and secure with a bobby pin creating a "bun" shape, adding extra bobby pins where needed to secure your hair.
  • Add hair accessory.
  • Finish off with your DIY hair accessory. Tutorial below for how to make your own.


This messy chignon hair works great for second day hair. But if you've just washed your hair or don't have much texture you can add a texturizing spray just as easily. We used Kenra dry texture spray, which is available on Amazon.
