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.

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.
