DIY Wedding Hair Chignon

6 Dec

This DIY tutorial from Marth Stewart Weddings is a great way to try new hairstyles for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, or even a low key- not too fussy wedding. Creating a side Chignon looks relatively easy in this tutorial so make sure to practice once before the big day!


   1. Using a round brush, blow-dry hair smooth and straight, focusing on the top sections.


2.Once dry, use a large-barrel curling iron to create waves from the ears down.


 3. Build height and volume at the crown by teasing hair gently with a fine-tooth comb.


4.Gather hair into a low ponytail. Twist it along the nape of your neck, pinning as you go.


5. Once you reach your ear, shape the remaining hair into curls, and pin them back over the twist.


6.To add texture, gently curl and scrunch the wispy ends with your fingertips.


7. Spritz strands in place
