Derived from the French phrase “chignon du cou”, Chignon means ‘the back of the neck’. Justifying its name, chignons feature various hairstyles behind the head. They generally modify the buns and simple up-dos, giving them a more stylish appearance. These elegant and sophisticated styles are perfect for weddings and formal occasions.
Characteristically simple, chignon hairstyles can also be found in ancient Greece, where Athenian women wore them with gold hairpins. You can recreate that special Greek appearance with the help of similar accessories. A flower will be appropriate for a more dramatic appearance.
