Chignon is a popular French hairstyle from the phrase “chignon du cou,” which means nape of the neck. Chignon is one of the oldest hairstyles that began in the Ancient Greece, where Athenian women commonly wore the style with gold or ivory handcrafted hairpins. Athenian men wore the style as well, but they fastened their chignons with a clasp of “golden grasshoppers”. There are lots of variations of chignon, and this tutorial from thebeautydepartment.com shows the simplest way to create the style with short hair.
