3. Chignon

When you are looking for a way to style your braids or another protective hairstyle for a special occasion, a chignon is the perfect choice for any outfit and style.

Another version of the classic chignon, on artificial braids. This was a challenge as this bridesmaid originally wanted curls. Artificial hair doesn’t curl with curling tongs (it melts) so i had to come up with something quickly. Luckily I had a 💡 moment! . . . #pinupcurl #bridesmaidshair #bridesmaidshairinspo #artificialbraids #artificialhair #chignon #weddinghairstylist #bridalhairstylist #modernvintage #modernvintagehair #bridalupdo #bridesmaidsupdo #vintageinspired #vintagebridalhair
