If you've spent any time at all perusing hairstyles on the internet, you've probably come to the realization that 'chignon' is just a fancy French word for updo. Because of its fanciness, this word is suggestive of difficult, convoluted and generally impossible hairstyles that aren't designed for mere mortals to accomplish with their own lowly human hands. Well, we've found a look that anyone can do and it's so easy that it's impossible to dislike.

Step one: Start by brushing your hair to remove any knots. This will make the already easy styling process even easier. (Did we already mention how super easy this easy hairstyle is?)
Step two: Gather all of the hair back as if you were going to do a regular low pony. As you're pulling the hair through the hair tie for the last time, only pull it out halfway or slightly less depending on how long your hair is. This will create a thick loop.
Step three: Use bobby pins to fix the loop to the back of your head. You can take some hair from the ends of the almost pony (hair not in the looped part) to divide it up and make the chignon look more intricate. Fake it till you make it, right?
Step four: Complete your deceptively well-coiffed updo with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray for plenty of long-lasting hold.
