Do an easy chignon hairstyle with just an elastic band, no bobby pins! Perfect for medium to longer length hair.
I’ve seen other chignon styles on Pinterest, but they never turn out right! My hair is so thick that bobby pins just don’t always do the job.
So I’ve found an easier way to do a low, versatile chignon, without bobby pins!
This hairstyle works best on medium to longer length hair. As you will see, you need to have enough length to wrap the ends around the chignon.
How to do an easy chignon
Start by putting your hair in a low ponytail, but don’t pull it through the last time. Leave a little loop of hair instead.
Then split the “tail” in half. Twist one half and wrap it up around your ponytail.
Tuck it into the elastic band. Depending on your hair length/thickness, it could end up underneath or on top. If your hair is really layered, the ends might poke out more, but that’s ok, its just a more casual look.
Do the same thing to the other side, but going the opposite direction.
Tuck it in.
Done! Super easy.
