There are so many different bridal updos out there, but sometimes, a classic updo is the best option. This beautiful chignon is the perfect wedding hairstyle for any season, and it's guaranteed to look stunning on everyone. If you think it could be a contender for your big day, you can trial it by following the easy tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply a texturizing spray like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Rough dry your hair, using your hands instead of a brush to guide the hair.

Step 2

When the hair is almost dry, twist individual pieces and finish drying them completely. This will create a natural, undone texture.

Step 3

Section off two large pieces of hair, one on each side of your face, and leave them loose while you work on the rest of your hair.

Step 4

Gather everything barring the two front sections of hair back into a low ponytail and secure it about an inch above the nape of your neck.

Step 5

Loosely braid the ponytail, then twist and pin it into a low bun.

Step 6

Take one of the front pieces of hair, twist it in towards your head, then wind the ends over the top and underneath the bun. Repeat on the other side, wrapping it the opposite way around the bun.

Step 7

Gently pull a couple of tendrils loose at the front to soften the look, then mist generously with a brushable finishing spray like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

Step 8

Attach your chosen accessory to one side of the bun, and you're good to go!

What do you think? Could this hairstyle be 'the one'?
