Hi girls! In today's easy hairstyles,  hair tutorial, I'm going to show you how to make a flower bun/chignon updo on a half-up, half-down formal hairstyle on medium to long hair. Inspired by Angelina Jolie's usual Red Carpet formal half-up upstyle, this elegant and romantic  chignon look  is a great:
  • Wedding hairstyles/updos idea
  • Bridal look
  • Bride's maids hair
  • Prom Hair
  • Homecoming Hair-dos
  • Party hair
  • ...for any special occasion.

Best Dry Shampoo for dark hair - cheap  I started on VERY dirty hair because I filmed another hair tutorial just the day before  and didn't want to torture it again with the curling iron.

Thank GOD for dry shampoos! My current favorite and best dry shampoo, IMHO - because it's cheaper than dirt and does exactly what it's suppose to do without making my hair all white and flaky - Give this one a shot! : Psssst Dry Shampoo 
 If you're doing this half-up updo on fresh hair: hairstyling is always easier on hair that has products in it, like a soft gel, and hair that has some waves (hint: you might want to curl it).

  • Tease the crown.
  • Take a small section of the crown, eyebrow arch to brow arch, and pin it on top of your head.
  • Alternating sides, take small sections from each side of your head and pin them in a stacking pattern on top.  Eventually, your half-up, half-down formal updo crown will look like it's been braided somehow with lot's of texture.
  • Don't forget to also pin up the hair below the ear on 1 side.  Angelina Jolie's half-up hairstyles usually look side swept from the front, and this is the reason.  Only pin up a small section in the back though.

Now to create the small flower buns (AKA Chignon):

  • Starting with a small strand of hair taken from the back, start twirling them around 1 finger, gradually making them bigger on top of where you had pinned down the crown.
  • As you're twirling the hair around your finger and pinning them down, trying to create a small flower/rose bun - flatten the hair as you go, so that they look like "flat" rose petals.  If your pieces are bunched up, it will end up looking like a normal bun. Watch my video to see what I mean. 
  • Gradually add more hair to the bun to make them bigger.
  • For this look, taking small sections come out best.

  • Repeat to create another flower bun. I usually like to add 2 small buns to this hairstyle and on the 2nd flower chignon, I either make them bigger or smaller, fuller or tighter -  since uniformity, especially in a hairstyle, is as interesting as vanilla ice cream.  Play it up and create something unique and different!
