Bridal Hair Trend: Undone Chignon

When it comes to bridal hair, “Balance is key to everything,” says Redken Session Stylist Giovanni Giuntoli. “Just because a dress is simple or the gown is elaborate doesn't necessarily mean the hair has to be the exact same feel. Big gowns can work with simple hair and vice versa.”

The undone chignon at Christos put a playful spin on the classic bun,” remarked Giuntoli. To create, Giuntoli created a ponytail in the back of the head and prepped with Style Connection wool shake 08 gel-slush texturizer. Then, using a large barrel iron, he created a slight ‘bend’ in the hair by wrapping large pieces around the iron. Once hair was finished, he gathered into a chignon. “Make sure to pin as you swirl the ponytail around itself into the bun but leave a 1-2 inch section out of the updo.” Says Giuntoli, “This really puts a modern touch on the otherwise simple style.” To secure entire look, use a hairspray like headplay 12 pliable working spray to secure fly away without making the updo too shiny or sticky.
