How To Do A Twisted Chignon With Our Step-by-step Tutorial

Whether you’re the mother of the bride or simply a guest, this twisted French bun will certainly impress.

It works well on long and mid-length hair, and only takes a few minutes to master.

For the sake of recreating the look yourself, follow these simple steps from our how-to video with John Vial, creative director at Fudge Professional.

  1. Work a volumising mousse through dry hair and blast with a hair dryer.
  2. Section the hair into two parts and pin one half out of the way.
  3. Tie the loose section of hair into a high ponytail, then spritz in place with hairspray.
  4. Twist the ponytail into a loop around your thumb, adding grips to secure it in place.
  5. Comb through the other side of hair, before pulling it round the bun you’ve just created.
  6. Tuck the loose ends into the top of your chignon and pin it to secure everything in place.
