A Chignon-A Great Hair Style for Kauai Beach Weddings


A hair style that is long lasting, elegant and infinitely customizable- a chignon (rhymes with filet mignon!)

The word chignon comes from the French "chignon du cou", meaning nape of the neck.






This chignon has a textured curl pile, somewhat unstructured, but still has smoothness and shine.
The crown still has volume, and a braid that is on the surface, culminating in two large orchids.

This chignon is very smooth and shiny, sculptured and very secure. This bride brought both lilies and greenery for her hairpiece!Chignon with hairband



A chignon is a great way to create a place to secure your veil comb and put a band of fresh plumeria...

I can create a high chignon, or a very low and full chignon. Fresh orchids always make the do!

 This chignon is made of very sculptured curls, the opposite of a messy bun!


A chignon can be to the side...

or with a sparkly beaded barrette.
