DIY side chignon


I never bother going over to Martha Stewart Weddings anymore, so I have to thank hip hip gin gin and {this is glamorous} for spotting this DIY side chignon.

Glamorous put together a lovely, streamlined version of the instructions so you don't have to click... click... click... click... while juggling your hairbrush, hairdryer, curling iron, hairspray, etc.

    btw how the heck do you pronounce chignon? Shee-non?

  3. I tried that diy guide for a wedding the other week. It didn't quite work out like hers (no doubt because my hair is longer and I didn't bother with the curling bit) but it looked nice.

  7. I say it, sheen-yawn. (i.e. like the Merriam-Webster man!)

    I wear my hair like that at least once a week. No need for a curling iron. Just twist, pin, and go. Takes two minutes, tops.
