The romantic chignon: for the love of the bun

The "romantic" chignon is a style that brings softness and femininity to the face thanks to its loose locks which wave down to just above the shoulders. Let's have a closer look at a classic style, the sometimes overly-structured bun in its relaxed, angelic form.

The romantic chignon, for captivating charm

Whoever said that Romanticism was left back in the 1800s has to answer to famous hair stylists around the world, who certainly do not agree! Backstage at Paris, London, Milan and even New York fashion shows, there has been a wave of romantic chignons in the styling seats. The bun section elegantly reveals the neck and nape, and the messy wavy (or curly) locks which frame the face bring charm and allure, even an element of seduction with a retro touch.

A bohemian hairstyle which elongates the silhouette

Denis Holbecq, the hairstylist ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel, sees the romantic chignon as "a good option for slimming down a round-shaped face. This glamorous and bohemian look exposes the neck, giving its wearer an elegant, long posture and silhouette." To copy the ultra-feminine hairstyles of Taylor Swift, we're opting for this gorgeous loose bun, which gives an immediate mystical aura, divinely hippie-chic.

The romantic chignon loves all colors

"To bring thickness to your hair using this loose chignon, the color bronde (Editor's note: a shade that mixes blond and brunette with a nuanced, blended contrast that looks entirely natural) is a great choice. The tips of the front locks, lightened using a dip-dye technique, can really brighten the face" our hair stylist adds. This last option definitively pushes the romantic chignon up to a status of "it" style. Why? Because current hair color trends are all about subtle two-tones.
