Prom Hair Ideas: Messy Chignon with Retro Twisted Sides for Prom

Based on a retro-1940’s hairstyle, this braided look has been creatively re-designed with a totally ‘free-form’ theme, for a fabulously casual and super-trendy 21st century look!

The styling begins with a thick strand of hair from each side being twisted to form an attractive band of multi-highlighted hair moving over the ear to the back.  This attractive band is fixed over the uncombed, tousled hair to create an informal circlet around the head.

Beneath the circlet, the hair is folded up and over into a messy, free-form chignon in a low position at the back of the head.  The hair is expertly highlighted in a mixture of light, medium and dark blonde shades which accentuate the amazing textures and movement of this chic, contemporary hairstyle beautifully!
