Gather the Necessary Materials

Before beginning the process of creating a chignon hairstyle using bobby pins, be sure to gather all the required materials for the job. These include bobby pins, boar bristle brush, hairband, hair tie, and some hair spray. Once you have these materials in place, you can progress with the hairstyle.

Begin with Clean Hair

The first and foremost thing to consider in creating a chignon hairstyle is to ensure that your hair is dry and clean. Wash and dry your hair thoroughly and comb it so that it is free of any tangles. Use a boar bristle brush to smooth out the hair further, if needed.

Create a High Ponytail

The next step is to create a high ponytail using a hair tie. Make sure to position it at the crown of your head to ensure that the chignon is properly aligned. If your hair tends to be on the thinner side, consider adding additional volume by teasing the hair at the crown of your head before creating the ponytail.

Twist and Pin the Hair into Place

Now that you have created the ponytail, it is time to twist the hair and pin it into place using bobby pins. Grab a few pieces of hair from the ponytail and twist them tightly. Use bobby pins to loop the twists of hair, ensuring that they remain in place. Continue this process until all of your hair is securely pinned into place.

Finish with Hairspray

Once you have twisted and pinned all of the hair in place, spray it with a generous amount of long-lasting hairspray. This will ensure that the chignon remains in place throughout the day. If desired, you can also use additional bobby pins to secure any loose strands of hair that have come out of the chignon.
