Red Carpet Hair: Modern Chignon

We’re back with another red-carpet- ready look for you. Tonia Day has put a current twist on the classic chignon.


Here’s how she achieves the modern chignon:

  • Start by pulling the hair back into a low ponytail and use a rubber band to fasten.
  • Wrap with decorative gold pliable wire.
  • Separate the ponytail into two sections and continue to wrap each section down to the ends.small for blog
  • Pull hair out in between the wiring for a more textured and full look.
  • Wrap the hair into a chignon and use pins to secure it.
  • For more volume at the crown use a rat-tail- comb to lift the hair.

This look is great for any red-carpet event or any occasion. Stay tuned to achieve more easy red-carpet- ready looks with Cristophe Salon.
