Easy + pretty! Simple Chignon Updo (click through for tutorial)Everybody has their "go-to" hairstyle that they do when they need a quick look that says, "I put some effort into my hair today," and this simple chignon bun is that hairstyle for me. I wear it for all sorts of events, and I love it because it's easy to pull off and doesn't look too fussy when it's done. You also don't need a lot of fancy tools to create it either, which is nice if you need to make your hair behave in a pinch.

Easy + pretty! Simple Chignon Updo (click through for tutorial)     Step One: Take a teasing brush and tease a few layers of hair at the back of the crown of your head. Smooth the top layers of your hair with the brush.

Step Two: Gather your hair into a low ponytail. I have long bangs in the front, so I like to keep a few pieces out in the front. You can do that too if you like that look or just include all your hair in the ponytail.

Step Three: Twist your ponytail and wrap the twist around the base of your ponytail to create a bun. You can also tease your ponytail before you twist it to create a bigger bun if you want.

Step Four: Use bobby pins to pin the bun into place and give your hair a quick spray of hairspray to set the look and help contain flyaways. That's it!

This is great for a date night, dinner with friends, or even for bridesmaid duties, and I like that it creates a soft wave look when I take out my hair at the end of the night. If you need a classy look that doesn't take much time to do, you'll want to give this one a try for sure! xo. Laura
