Messy Romantic Chignon

Usually updos can be overwhelming because of the weight, but this relaxed chignon is light, chic and sophisticated. Perfect for special occasions and brides that are having an outdoor wedding.
1. Section hair into 2 ½ inch sections. Take each hair section & curl with 1 ¼ inch barrel curling iron & lightly mist a very light hold hair spray onto hair.
2. Gather the curled hair sections & pin them up. Mist pinned hair with light holding hair spray. Allow hair to set for at least 30 minutes.
3. Remove the pinned set working from the nape of the neck area first. Leave the crown, front & side sections alone for now.
4. Back comb or lightly tease each loose section at the root. Mist hair with a light hold hair spray. After back combing & spraying, gently smooth any snarls or flyways with a wide tooth comb, and then finger comb the sections together.
5. Use an elastic band to create a side ponytail. The crown area of the hair should still remain set.
6. Divide the ponytail into sections. Take each section and fold the sections loosely and randomly around the base of ponytail & secure with a bobby pin. The sections should looks soft as if they were ready to fall out of the knot.
7. Release pin curls from crown, sides & front. Repeat step 6 & 7 until all of the sections are blended & pinned into place. Style the front as you like. Gently loosen any side wisps for a romantic look.
8. Apply a small amount of smoothing crème to flyaway areas. Lightly mist with a finishing hair.

So pretty! And I'm afraid of the same thing @alohajpark. My hair is so heavy1
Her hair is gorgeous!
Lol @madeleine. We surely can't live without bobby pins! hahaha
Wow this is really stunning!
Very elegant! I showed this to my youngest daughter (who's very much into hairstyling) and she attempted to do this on my hair this morning for church. She used about 7 hair pins to keep the messy chignon in place. Got lots of compliments this morning.

I'm with love with the COCO
Recently, I'm kind of in love with Chanel. So I kind of searched on the types of Chanel bags!!!! Cerf Tote Released in 2005, this bag quickly became part of Chanel’s classic collection. The Cerf comes in four sizes; Small, Regular, Tall and XL Medallion Once a classic style, this lovely tote has now been discontinued. Most recognizable by its oversized CC medallion zipper pull. Shopping Totes (GST, PST, PTT) This is one of Chanel’s most popular classic styles that comes in a variety of sizes. Typically this bag is made in Caviar leather and comes in a variety of colors, most commonly though, in black and light beige. GST for Grand Shopping Tote, PST for Petite Shopping Tote, PTT for Petite Timeless Tote, and XL. Cambon Ligne Made from smooth calfskin leather with a bold CC logo at the side, this very popular style was first introduced in 2004-2005 and were immensely popular. The line has many different styles and color combinations. While most of this line is now discontinued, the Cambon style is still released in WOC bags and wallets. Boy Bags Karl Lagerfeld designed the Boy Collection as an interpretation of the boyish charm that Coco Chanel was known for. Karl was stated as saying that the very spirit of Chanel was inspired by Boy Capel, the love of her life; which is why this new collection is called the "Boy Chanel." Sizes: Small, Medium, New Medium and Large Timeless Clutch Also known as the ‘Kisslock’ clutch bag because of its CC frame closure. Typically this bag is only offered in Caviar and lambskin leather, however it is occasionally made with exotic python. Camera Case Though slightly elusive and hard to find - the Camera Case is released often as part of the classic collection. The camera case is released in various sizes and has evolved from being a small crossbody bag with the classic tassel pull closure. WOC One of the most popular styles, this wallet on a chain is constantly in creation using different styles and materials. The WOC is exactly what its name implies - the interior boasts several card slots, a zip pocket, and flat pockets, all on a chain strap. The chain can be tucked in or worn across the chest. Common Styles: Classic, Timeless, Boy, Half-Moon, Camellia, Cambon. Which one is your choice? My fav is the Boy type :3
How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
