My philosophy during the summer months is “anything goes” and I believe your hair should reflect this, too. One look I think is always in style, without being overdone, is taking your natural texture (wavy, curly, straight, etc.) and transforming it into a chic chignon. This look is easy to do on-the-go and in between parties. Want this look? Get it with these easy-to-follow steps:

  • Part hair on the side you are most comfortable with and pull hair back so it is gathered at the nape of the neck. The placement of the chignon can be at the center or slightly off-centered for a fun, flirty look.


  • Next, twist hair until a spiral knot is formed and tuck the ends under so all hair is smooth. Secure with a few bobby pins.
  • Finish the look with a lightweight hairspray for extra hold.
