A jeweled chignon is perfect for a romantic evening

Accessorized chignons are one of this season's on-trend looks. Perfect for glam parties, and even low-key outings, this look will take you from the office to the dance floor in no time. Many Hollywood A-listers have rocked this look on the red-carpet and hitting the best-dressed lists.


Make like your favorite celeb and try out this princess-esque look next time you hit the town. The style instantly opens up the face and highlights your best features. There's no right or wrong to getting the chignon part of this trend right. If you prefer straight hair, try straightening the lengths of your hair, but leave your roots au-natural to keep volume. Or, try wrapping strands of your hair around a small-barrelled curling iron to create a sexy tousled look. Then, simply tie up the hair into a ponytail. Try a high ponytail if you're after a statement look, or a low-slung ponytail for a more relaxed vibe. Next, twist the lengths of the hair around the hair tie and secure with another hair tie, or if you prefer, some hair pins, to create the chignon.

The key part of this look, however, is your choice of accessory. If you're not afraid of attracting people's attention, try a statement accessory like a tiara or even a large-jeweled headband . If you're more reluctant to wear large statement pieces, opt for a few small-jeweled clips dotted around your chignon, or a simple headband with a couple of sparkly details. Clip or place your accessory onto your style and voila! Say hello to instant glamour and an uber-chic hairstyle.
