Karl Lagerfeld S/S 2010

I loved the fresh take on a classic French chignon at Karl Lagerfeld’s S/S 2010 runway. It’s less formal and more care-free and fun.

I assume everyone knows how to do a chignon, but this one is a little different. It’s really messy but not like “I just woke up” kind of messy. It’s highly textured with messy pieces spilling out everywhere.

Instead of putting your hair in the ponytail before making a bun, pin your hair into a ponytail strand by strand creating a weave like texture. Once you have something that resembles a ponytail, secure it with an elastic, and then pin the chignon. Voila! Use a little bit of hair spray to secure in place.
