The Classic & Modern: Chignon

Few hair styles hold up through the ages as well as the Chignon ( pronounced: "shin-yawn " )  This French name refers to the " nape of the neck, " where the design is worn.  The classic Chignon  resembles a beautiful, smooth, low knot or bun.

 First made popular in Athens, Greece, women wore the style fastened with gold or ivory pins.  Today the Chignon is just as gorgeous and can be worn a variety of ways!


Try it with a braid:

The Chignon is so versatile that it was a "must have" hair do in the 1940s - Woman would wrapped a scarf around their style before they left for
 work in the factories!
