My signature hairstyle is a chignon (pronounced shin-yon), a.k.a a bun. The word “chignon” comes from the French phrase “chignon du cou,” which means nape of the neck. I love wearing my hair in a chignon because it’s neat and I don’t have to worry about my hair not looking the way I want it to. I’ve noticed that the chignon is also the default hairstyle some of my favorite stylistas too – JLo and SJP to name a few.
Believe it or not, annually, I spend hours at the hairdresser; I often wear my hair down, but the easiest, and possibly most flattering, hairstyle for me is a chignon. It’s chic and simple: it can be big (add a fall here or there) or small, it can be messy or neat, on top of my head or at the nape of my neck. Since the chignon is my hairstyle of choice, I’m always on the lookout for products that will help me have the best chignon possible. Leave it to the folks at Goody to come up with the Goody Spin Pin for you guessed it, buns.
They look a little daunting, but I found this great how-to with step-by-step instructions here. I’m thinking it’s going to be a scorcher this Summer, high temps and thick hair on the nape of my neck do not go hand-in-hand. If you’re like me, you might want to check out the new fangled Goody Spin Pin for yourself. Click here to find it.
