Tip #1: Redefine your job description

To be successful in her career and still be fashion-savvy, a woman must examine her job description from the point of view of hairstylists. Regardless of your profession, your hairstyle should help you appear more attractive.

For example, a woman who works in a laboratory will be wearing a bulky lab coat, along with gloves and goggles, and sometimes, with earmuffs and a gas mask. Her job description demands that she keeps her hair out of the way. What if her laboratory research finally yields results that are worthy of media attention? She couldn’t emerge from her laboratory looking like an overworked scientist who talked to beakers. Instead, her hairstylist would suggest a short stylish hairstyle, perhaps a chic bob.

When it comes to hairstyles, the ones that will show off your best features will be those that are appropriate for the shape of your face. The aesthetics law that hairstylists faithfully adhere to is to have hairstyles that create illusions. For example, a medium-length layered hairstyle will create an illusion of length and narrowness for women who have round face shapes.

Tip #3: Strive for an ageless hairstyles

Another factor to weigh in choosing hairstyles is your age. This does not mean that you need a hairstyle that reflects the fad of the year you were born. It means that your hairstyle must accede, to some degree, to the social expectations of your age. If you really wanted highlights, choose the more subtle colors. And if you really wanted to copy Victoria Beckham’s chic bob hairstyle, compromise with a longer length or a less radical angle.

Does this mean that older women have a more limited of selection of hairstyle? On the contrary, older women have more freedom with hairstyles. When you’re in your forties, you can actually get away with a lot of things. But you must remember to appear more elegant rather than stylish, and to appear shrewd rather than obtuse.

The Chignon is not a harsh “librarian” bun though. It’s softer and looser, which makes this a very feminine look. Once you know how to do it properly, you’ll be able to do it in seconds as you run out the door.

How To Make A Chignon Hairstyle

1. Begin with clean, dry, tangle-free hair. You may opt to blow curly or wavy hair straight for a smoother look. Work a little mousse through your hair and tame any flyaway hair with a drop of anti-frizz serum before starting your chignon.

2. Brush your hair back into a low ponytail. Shorter side layers can be pinned back with jeweled hair pins or a head band. Get a firm grip around the base of the ponytail and use your other hand to twist the tail into a tight spiral.

3. Hold the base of the ponytail with one hand, then lift the tail straight up with the other. Begin to coil it clockwise around the base. When you’ve made half of a circle, release the hand holding the base and use it to hold the forming bun as you continue to coil the tail of the chignon.

4. Complete one rotation – a little more if you have longer hair – then tuck the end of the tail under the chignon. If your hair is long enough, you might be able to push the tail through the bun and make a knot.

5. Secure the chignon using a few prong-shaped bobby pins or a hair stick. Push one pin through at any outside edge, collecting a small amount of the bun as you make the insertion. Secure the opposite side with a second pin. If you’re using a hair stick, push the tip up through the right corner of your chignon, so that a thin flat layer rests on top of the stick. Rotate the stick 180 degrees and push it gently through the base of the bun. As the stick begins to emerge, hook a small amount of hair on the underside of the left corner, then center the stick.
