Trendy Woven Chignon with Bun – Upside Down Braid

This super twist on the traditional bun is perfect for keeping your hair up and out of the way, in a new and contemporary style!

The sides are brushed back and then woven into an upwards French braid, with the ends neatly tucked out of sight under the bun.  Then the rest of the hair is secured in a pony-tail at the crown and styled over a ‘bun ring’, to create a perfectly circular bun and flattering volume on the top of the head.

To keep this style modern, the braiding doesn’t have to be completely straight as a little asymmetry will add style.  Then with a few wisps left free at the nape and the sides to add a trendy casual touch, you’ve got a very versatile and attractive new hairdo!
