Cocktail Party Chignon:
Part your hair to one side, then pull all of it over the opposite shoulder.
Sweep hair into a low ponytail. Make sure the ponytail pulls over your ear and sits just below and behind it. “You want to be able to see the bun when you look straight ahead,” says Osorio.
Braid the ponytail, securing it with an elastic. This will help bulk up your bun so it won’t look too tiny.
Now, mess up the braid by gently pulling it on both sides so it’s wider and a bit undone.
Wrap the braid around itself loosely to create a bun, then pin in place.
