Prom Hairstyles: The Loose Chignon

A chignon, hairstylist speak for a loose bun, is great for prom hairstyles in which you want to avoid a huge, fussy hairstyle.

The hair can either be set large rollers first to give a little volume or, if you have thick hair, simply brushed out well beforehand. This prom hairstyle, as seen on Hilary Duff, has long hair divided into three large sections. Those sections are then twisted to create a long, tube like twist that sits atop each section. The entire length of the hair is then placed into a low lying pony tail at the very base of the neck.

To create a soft prom hairstyle the hair is then loosely wrapped in a bun and bobby pins secure the bun to the head. Hillary's long bangs are parted in the middle and left to loosely hand down on either side to frame the face.

Home or Salon Style- This one's a little tricky. There's a lot going on and chances are you don't have enough hands to do it all. If you have a hair savvy friend this could work if you both tackle it together but a visit to the salon is recommended.
