Angelina Jolie’s low-key chignon at the Governors Awards in Hollywood is such an elegant hairstyle that’s perfect for work, dinner and parties. This chic chignon would also make a beautiful wedding hairstyle for brides and bridesmaids.
To replicate the look at home, forget fiddling around with bobby pins – we’ve found a genius hair tool that will make styling your hair into a chignon a breeze (it also works for top knots and buns). Scunci Pin Twirls, RRP $9.95, come as a set of curly pins and they’re really easy to use. Just follow these easy steps.
1. Pull hair together at the nape of the neck.
2. Twirl hair into a tight bun and tuck in the ends.
3. Swivel one pin twirl in from the top and the other from the bottom of the bun. Do not connect them.
That’s it! The pins are comfortable and keep your chignon secure and in place all day.
