Everyone loves a good chignon. Whether you’re heading to a black tie formal event or you’re relaxing over the weekend with girlfriends, few hairstyles can make you look so effortlessly put together the way the chignon can. But, much as we love the style, everything needs a good shake up every now and again, so why not add a twist?

Take a look at some of our favorites, then tell us if you’ll be trying one of these chignons in the comments below!
