Reese Witherspoon - elegant looking sixties-style chignon

For medium length hair

You can easily create this elegant chignon yourself if you wear your hair in an at least shoulder-length bob style. Styling is easier with hair that has been washed the evening before. Tip for fine hair: Your hair will have sufficient volume for this hairdo if you allow your hair to dry on rollers overnight. This is certainly uncomfortable but the effect is gorgeous.

Here's how

  1. Comb your hair back and gather it in a ponytail. Tease the ponytail slightly
  2. Pull a thin scrunchy around the end of the ponytail and tuck this end under
  3. Pin this lower scrunchy close to your head. Slightly pull the so created bun apart. Use pins to fasten the sides of the bun. Some hair spray will hold the hair style in place
