The word chignon comes from the French phrase chignon du cou, which means nape of the neck. There are many variations of the Chignon but generally, it is achieved by pinning the hair into a knot at the nape of the neck or at the back of the head. You only need a couple of bobby pins, 2 minutes and it's done. It looks well put together and cute. It is perfect with thick and long hair and especially for someone who has dark hair.

Cute Wavy Hair

Long hair with magical waves is all one needs to look seductive. My favorite thing about this hairstyle is hair coming together to create a cute glam look. You can wear this style day or night casual or special occasions. There is really nothing more beautiful than soft, bouncy and wavy hair.

Simple Low Updo

This low updo is not too messy and not too stiff, but still neat. This particular outlook does show off texture in dark hair and enhances the entire look. There is no need to use any hairpieces to accentuate this hair. Try to be very gentle twisting your hair for the low bun since the style needs to be kind of messy but still neat. Any hair types can wear it, but styling is easier when the hair is not too loose and not too stiff.

Having an updo style that is comfortable until the day is done and is not damaging your hair is important to any lady.

Updos for Long Hair are trending quite hard right now. In fact, it is not only for formal occasions; but also for any casual and regular days as well.

My advice for updos is always the same: use lots of product as clean hair is hard to work with and don't over think it. There is beauty in imperfection. Needless to mention that hairstyle is something on which your style and personality depends.

The next time you want to dress up try one of these perfect hairstyles to make a major impact.
