NORDSTROM Beauty Spot- Chignon



Recently in my previous post here I announced my partnership with Nordstrom’s Beauty Spot and shared one of my favorite fall hairstyles, Glam curls!  Now I wanted to share with you my 2nd  go to hairstyle for the fall, the sleek chignon.


My obsessions with chignons started with my infatuation with the parisian lifestyle after a short visit to France. I loved the chic & effortless way that women dressed , bare faced (or as it seems), and tousled up hair. A bare shoulder, and neck cleavage is unexpectedly sexy , which is perfect for the French phrase “chignon du cou” meaning “the Nape Of The Neck”.


This simple up-do creates a sophisticated look , quickly. So if you are in a rush for work , have an important meeting or heading out to a party this is the fastest way to look put together in a hurry!


Make sure you head over to the Nordstrom Beauty Spot to find more photos and details on how to achieve this look and 2 of my other fall favorite hairstyles! and click HERE to see more of my favorite beauty products from hair tools, to makeup & perfume, to face masks for this season!

    @Jo-An: I wish I had a longer neck! There are some simple solutions to making your neck appear shorter and still wear the chignon up-do; tie a scar on your neck, wear a turtleneck (cooler weather), wear a blouse with a stiffer collar that can stand up to cover your neck, wear a choker necklace that wraps around the middle of your neck or a necklace that falls on the base of your neck and collar bone. Audrey Hepburn had a long, elegant neck and often wore shorter necklaces and outfits with higher necklines…she would be great inspiration! Hope that helps!

  • Jo-An says:

    I don’t know but whenever I do updo I feel it doesn’t look good on my because my neck appears so long. What do you think I should do?

    I would love to wear those hair styles :'(

    • Chriselle says:

      I think a long neck is very beautiful!Embrace your gorgous assets! But if you are feeling a bit uncomfortable I think some of the solutions Wynne Suggested are great too! Let me know how it works for you! Best of luck xoxo
