For our second Hair and Make-Up Master Class, we look at creating an elegant low bun – the classic chignon!

This style is an elegant and timeless bridal look and would suit a more formal wedding or a bride wanting to achieve a chic style. With images by Kate at Quince and Mulberry Studios, Beck from Step ‘N’ Out Hair and Body shows you how to create this look in a few easy steps.

1. Wash and dry hair.

3. Clip hair in sections as shown. With bottom section, tie in loose ponytail and loop through itself.

5. Once bun is rolled, secure firmly with bobby pins.
