Another great holiday look is a chignon. A chignon looks best when it is off to one side and is full and messy.
To create this look:
Part your hair in the desired way.
You can leave shorter face framing pieces forward.
Gather the rest of your hair back and to the side
For more height gather the hair off center at ear height.
For less height gather the hair off center and further towards the nape of your neck.
Secure your hair with a pony tail.
Take small sections of the pony tail and wrap and twist them towards the ponytail base.
Secure each section with hair pins.
Criss-cross the pins to secure the hair.
When you have twisted and secured all of the ponytail into a messy, unfinished looking bun you can loosely pull on some of the hairs to create a messier look.
Spray with hairspray to hold the hairs in place.
Curl or twist the shorter face framing hairs that you left out.
Style your bangs and your chignon is complete.
Accessorize this look with glamorous earrings and bold lipstick and your look is holiday ready.
