10 Gorgeous Chignon Hairstyles 2017 (+Tutorial)

First, we need to know there are terms “bun” and “chignon”. Are the two same and interchangeable? No, actually, at least not in English. “Chignon” is the French word for bun, but in its American and British usage, it’s an abbreviated term, originating from the phrase “chignon du cou,” or “bun at the nape of the neck.”

Buns can be anywhere on your head, and you can wear lots of them at once. You can have them looped around your ears (see: Princess Leia), stuck up on your crown like Sailor Moon’s little meatball odango buns, and worn messy, small, whatever. Chignons, on the other hand, have traditionally been worn low on the head. They’re also considered more formal, and you only wear one, usually large and containing the entire length of your hair.

Buns are always wrapped around themselves, whether twisted around a center or braided. Chignons, however, aren’t necessarily so. They may simply be tucked under or can be built around a central pin, tiara, or other hair accessory. The chignon hairstyle is an incredibly elegant updo hairstyle that can turn a bad hair day into a dynamic look with not much effort at all.

Chignons are perfect for any occasion. Then how about create the hottest chignon hair 2017? Before you get started creating chignon, make sure you have an ample supply of hair elastics, hairpins, hairspray, a pin-tail comb and a paddle brush all ready to go.
