One of the most romantic hairstyle a modern bride can choose for her big day is the side chignon. This hairdo is also one of the most beloved one by our fashion designers and hairstyles. They recommend it to both young and mature women and not only for weddings but for any other type of glamorous event or special occasion.
Many celebrities seem to adore this hairstyle and choose it for their red carpet appearances. This style is also referred to as the French twist or swept wavy side chignon. The name says it all, but you need to see a few pictures to make yourself an overall impression on how it looks.
We’ve posted here some of our favorite dos from various celebrities in Hollywood. The style is quite similar in all cases, only the face configuration and hair color differs. This beautiful hairstyle can be achieved by brides with a long or relatively medium hair. This look is so charming because it involves a few curls and waves.
The swept-side twist is the one that makes you look so flirty, so chic and feminine. We like the asymmetrical vibe used nowadays by many fashion designers in different wedding items. The one-shoulder wedding gowns are also among our favorites, as well as those cut with asymmetrical ruffles, drapes and skirts.
You can opt for a wavy-side chignon or for a straighter updo. It depends on your personal preferences. Women know what looks good on them and what doesn’t. And when you’re a bride, the perfect look is the one you should be interested in achieving for your wedding.
We’ve gathered a few tips for those who are thinking of adopting this style for their wedding hair. So you can follow a few quick and easy steps in creating this hairstyle yourself. This is one of the easiest DIY hairdos a bride can benefit of for her big day. To begin with, you have to curl your hair with a 1-inch curling iron. Opt for medium waves to obtain a soft loose look. The sides must be curled away the face. Start pinning each ringlet to your scalp.
The pincurls must be also loose. Then you must tease the hair a little bit at the crown and also on the side of the chignon. This will add more volume and a strong base for the pins. This ensures your fresh & perfect look for a long fun night.
Now you can start forming the chignon by bringing the hair towards one side. Secure it firmly with bobby pins and create an X shape. Pick up the small sections and pin the hair naturally to create a romantic loose texture. Spray everything with strong-hold hairspray and you’re done!
