DIY: The Side Chignon

I'm honestly sick of wearing my hair down, and now that my hair is in the process of growing long again (albeit at a snail's pace) I want to experiment with it more!
I'm always on the look out for hair tutorials, and the easier the tutorial the better.
I recently came across this one for a side chignon on Martha Stewart Weddings. It looks simple enough, and the end result is stunning.

Hope you guys find it useful too!


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. Spritz strands in place.
7. To add texture, gently curl and scrunch the wispy ends with your fingertips.
