The Only Way is Up: Do as the Bloggers Do
Stars love to crown their heads with high chignons and so do bloggers. Once bloggers embrace a style, it will soon become a world-wide trend. Look for the stylish updos in the streets, at work, and during leisure time.
Women love to wear the chignon hairstyle because of its ability to adapt to everyday looks and special occasions. The practical chignon flatters every face and looks good with any hair type. Let’s not forget how practical chignons are. They are a great choice for so many occasions whether you want to party, work, study or play; chignons even add charm to your style on a bad hair day or when styling must be fast. Whatever your plans are, a big event or fun time with your friends, your hair is conveniently tucked out of your face and does not interfere with your activities.

How to Style the High Chignon
Tautly gather your hair to a ponytail on the crown of your head and secure it with a hair tie. Now wrap pieces of your ponytail around the hair tie using bobby pins to secure the pieces. Applying some hair spray keeps the chignon put together longer.
In case your hair is fine: Tease your hair in the upper back of your head before you gather it into a high ponytail. Using volumizing powder adds even more volume.
Would you rather like to wear a larger chignon? Simply pull your ponytail through a hair donut (also known as bun shaper). Then cover the hair donut with strands of your ponytail until the donut is completely covered. Secure your hair around the chignon with hair pins.
By the way, Melissa tried the chignon version with added hair donut. However, she noticed that she was adding volume to already thick hair. "The hair donut made my chignon almost too big", she remembers. Simply try it and see what happens!
