It is a chignon. A chignon is more of a category of hairstyles rather than one specific hairstyle.

It’s a chignon…a rather complicated looking one at that. By the looks of it the stylist used a “bump it” or something similar to create height in the top. Left some sections of hair free and created a bun at the base of the neck. Then wrapped and pinned the sections over, under and through the bun and top portion of the style to create the design.

It’s a nice style.

Aileen…I think if you use bobby pins on the main portions of the style..the bun and the bump in the top, that will give you the tightness you need to hold the style. Then use straight pins underneath the “loops” of hair to hold that part. If you look closely at the “bun” part of the style, you can see a couple of the bobby pins…but none on the overlay part.

Explaining hairstyles is so complicated when all you have is words. I talk with my hands so this is hard for me…LOL
