The classic ballerina bun is set to be one of this winter's biggest hair trends. Office-appropriate while remaining elegant enough for an evening out, which style will you go for this season - beautifully braided or smooth and sleek?
Simple and sophisticated
This look tends to work best on longer, naturally straight hair. The bun sits between the back and the crown of the head, with any flyaways smoothed or pinned down. For extra points, style with products for an on-trend wet-look effect.
Young and fresh without appearing too girly, the simple chignon pulls together almost any look, irrespective of makeup or outfit. If you're after a preppier, vintage-inspired look, fix your bun lower towards the nape of the neck. Not your thing? Twist up towards the crown of the head to give your look a more undone, rock-'n'-roll feel.
Zero risk of a fashion faux pas with this timeless look! Easy to master and easy to wear, this take on the chignon trend looks great with winter's luxe evening dresses, while giving a more glamorous touch to the classic leather jacket.
The bun is fixed in place towards the crown of the head, with three braids of similar thickness drawing the eye upwards from the nape of the neck. From the front, this look gives the same effect as a classic chignon, while the braids peeking through from the back add a touch of originality.
Deceptively girly. While the traditional chignon tends to give a more polished touch, this grunge-inspired braided version is a little more rebellious. Proof that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover!
A runway staple this season, this eye-catching look is sure to become one of this winter's must-wear trends. A cinch to recreate once you've mastered the braids, the braided bun is perfect if you're looking for an easy way to switch up your look this winter.
