Prom Hair Tutorial: Easy Rolled Chignon

Prom season is nearly upon us, and if you’re looking for an easy but super-chic DIY prom hairstyle then we’re here to help! We’ve created a series of prom hair tutorials that can all be recreated at home, using just a couple of styling products and your trusty ghds. Whether you’re after something long and glamorous or an elegant up-do, we’ll show you how to steal the show with our easy-to-follow prom style videos. This week, we’re kicking off the series with this low-maintenance rolled chignon style.

The chignon is a classic hair-up style that’s perfect for prom, but we’ve added a couple of twists to update the look. Follow our model Maria below and recreate this pretty but quirky style yourself.

We chose to leave the chignon quite messy for that tousled, low-maintenance vibe; but if you want something a little more polished for your prom then that’s easy too! Simply follow the steps as above, but take a little more time with the rolling step to ensure a super-neat, tight chignon. A strong hold hairspray will help prevent any flyaways or loose strands, while a shine spray will make the style glossy and glamorous.

Shop the Look

Chic up-dos like this look best on hair that already has a slight wave. Before styling the chignon, Maria prepped her hair with a root-boosting spray mousse for thickness and hold and then added soft waves with the ghd Curve Classic Wand.
