Playful & Pretty Chignons at Alice & Olivia Fall 2011

Alice & Olivia’s fall/winter 2011 collection by Stacey Bendet received a  fresh and playful accompaniment to the clothes with a fun hair look.  Thanks to lead stylist Thomas Dunkin and the Sebastien Hair Team, the models sported perky chignons as they presented the collection. The collection, along with the hair, evokes timeless elegance and unabashed glamour while speaking to the girl who’s flawlessly fun and full of life. The wistful elegance of the clothes pairs well with the very polished yet still flirty aspect of the chignons.

As you can see the hair is twisted at the front and tightly pulled back for a secure slightly undone bun. The chignons have a smooth, sleek polish to them. Try Sebastien Light Whipped Creme Conditioning Whip to get your hair smooth and ready to be manipulated. Accenting with a pretty clip, will add polish to this very flirty take on the simple “Fashion Bun” we’ve been seeing lately.

You can see with this one, they pulled out a few wisps to make it seem slightly undone.

You can easily emulate the effect of these chignons with a ponytail by twisting the sides (as seen on the model above) and leaving the ponytail loose.
