A Blooming Chignon
A chic look for brides is a structured bun, or chignon, that can be worn low on the neck or higher up on the head. Flowers can add to this classic look by placing either one or two blooms on the side of the chignon, dispersed around the hair, or lining one side of the circle.
When it comes to positioning the flowers, hairpins fastened along the stem work best, whether you're working with a single large flower or clusters of smaller blossoms. When working with smaller individual flowers, pierce the center of the flower with a small hairpin (choose a beaded variety) and stick it directly into the hair. This will ensure the flower -- and the look -- will stay put.
