12 Perfect Chignon Hairstyles

Looking for the most darling ‘do for your day? One of our favorite wedding hairstyles is the chignon, also known as a messy side bun. This style can be worn for both medium and long hair lengths, with or without a veil. If you opt for no veil, you can incorporate a floral hair accessory into the style (as shown in a few images below). Today, we’ve compiled twelve perfect chignon hairstyles to share with your hairstylist plus a few DIY videos to try at home. But first, check out this adorable photo below by Brita Photography showing a completely candid moment of the bride getting ready. Look at that big smile! Make sure your photographer snaps plenty of “getting ready” photos on the big day; you’ll treasure them. Read on for more…
