This most fashionable hairstyle is so popular with ladies that it is no surprise to learn it is a very popular hairstyle for brides too. Taken from the French word meaning 'nape of the neck', a classic chignon or bun can be worn low down or can be taken high up to create a more dramatic effect.
There are variants on this hair style that can
completely change the whole overall look so it is worth spending some
time with your bridal hair stylist to find the style that suits you,
your dress and your headdress most effectively. If you are thinking of a
more informal low and loose chignon, there are several bridal
headdresses that will look fantastic. It may be worth asking a company
to design one specifically for your hair and style but look out for
circlets and vines.
Circlets are just that, a circle design using
semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, Swarovski crystals or a
combination of all that fully encompasses your chignon. You can then opt
for a droplet effect that falls down underneath the chignon to
accentuate the drama of the style. The circlet can be as wide as you
choose and with as much detail on as you choose. If you desire a more
embellished overall look for your bridal hair style then why not think
about some bridal hair pins with either silk flowers or fresh water
pearls that tie in with the circlet. Your bridesmaids can then
co-ordinate with you with either flower hairpins or combs and a circlet
necklace to tie the whole look together.
The hair vines are also
great headdresses to wear with the chignon style as these are usually
made using silver wire and can therefore be wrapped around your style to
create a very dramatic encompassing look. The vine itself is a bridal
hair comb that is adorned with all manner of beautiful things, for
example carved shellflowers, Swarovski crystals or fresh water pearls.
This is set at the top of your chignon style and the vines wrap around
the sides to create a waterfall effect. The look is beautiful and very
If you want a more understated look for your chignon then
what could be better than gorgeous simple hair flowers or bridal
hairpins. These can be secured in a more haphazard manner to create a
very informal and feminine look. Dotted around your hairstyle to create
flair of imagination that oozes classic chic and individuality.
