{elegantly chic: the classic chignon}


. . . for an evening out, often prefer flowing and softly skimming just above the collarbone, tousled and sexy, but at the office and for meetings and appointments, swept away seems best for a busy day, and beautifully swept into an elegant and always classic chignon is best of all . . .

{p.s.} more classic chignons & a side chignon

I love chignons but alas I have the original horse shaped face and it's just too harsh on me

Yes, a swept up chignon creates just the right sense of elegance for a business day - always beautiful!

I have been away at the sea and missed some gorgeous posts...so glad to be back and visiting all the glamour here. I'm so thankful that you posted this because I'm always searching for an elegant yet chic way to wear my hair back because a regular ponytail seems so much less sophisticated. You just have such a wonderful sense of style, and this looks PERFECT for a busy day of meetings and appointments. Thank you friend!

Simple & sexy! The step by step photos for the side chignon seem easy , however, the 6th pic in the first link of the braided classic chignon is a must try!

I cannot wait for my hair to grow out a bit longer so that I can put my hair up like this!
All the best for a fabulous week

I love the sleek updo's of Audrey and Mad Men, but this low, loose bun is beautiful and elegant too.

I always have the best intentions of creating gorgeously structured and glamorous chignons, but they always end up lop-sided and messy. This does look absolutely stunning though!
