A flamenco chignon is a very beautiful hairstyle worn by flamenco dancers where the ponytail will be pulled back tightly with a center part or straight back from the forehead. Then the hair will be braided into a large chignon at the base of your neck. This style was usually created by a large ornamental flower placed behind one ear or at the back of the head to get a dramatic look. Here are few simple steps that can be used to create this hairstyle at home.
To achieve this hairstyle, part your hair in the middle of the head and brush it down straight using a hair brush. For naturally curly hair, first you must straighten the hair using a flat iron to create a dramatic-looking chignon. Take all the hair together at the nape of the neck by keeping it slightly off to one side or at the center. Wrap a ponytail holder around the hair tightly to make a low ponytail and then twist the ponytail around the base of the ponytail holder for a full chignon bun. Tuck the ends of your hair under the chignon and secure it using bobby pins. Apply a little amount of hair gel all over your hair to make the hair look neat and add flowers to make the hairstyle look more attractive. At last spritz all over the hair with light to medium hairspray to make the hairstyle stay in place.
