Doll hair that is molded in a chignon style was made about 1860.
Rather than sport a formal French twist or chignon this season, many girls are planning a simple half up and half down updo.
French Twist: A French twist or chic chignon is perfect for a modern bride, and adding a hair comb or pins on the side of the style will accent the hair beautifully.
If your hairstyle is a classic chignon or sleek updo and your dress is a traditional ball gown, a classic bridal makeup look works well.
Whether it's having all your hair pulled into a high bun or held elegantly in place by a loose chignon, the choices for an up-do are numerous.
