One of the most popular and classic bridal hairstyles has always been the chignon. This elegant hairstyle can be loose or sleek giving it either a traditional look or more romantic and soft style, fitting for any kind of wedding. Try the look for
yourself by gathering your hair in a low pony to one side or at the nape of the neck and pinning up the ends. You can wrap the ends around for a more traditional looking bun, or pull them out in every direction to achieve a more romantic look. The best part is that it looks great with curly
hair, straight hair, or with twists and braids for a more Greek goddess style. The style works with particularly well with birdcage veils and fascinators. We would love it if our hair looked this elegant every day!
