How to Do This Braided Sweetheart Chignon in 2022

Okay you guys, this braided “Sweetheart Chignon” look has me feeling all sorts of ways right now. I’m a sucker for any sort of low bun style, but the iteration on today’s episode of The Braid Up is particularly adorable thanks to epic braids, graphic parts, and some face-framing tendrils. This “Sweetheart Chignon” is the handiwork of legendary hairstylist and owner of Magic Fingers Studio Stasha Harris and trust me, once you watch the style come to life in this video you’ll be just as obsessed with it as I am.

Want to make this super-cute chignon your own? Follow these four tips and tricks to get it done.

1. Make a pre-wash your first step. Before you prep your hair with a wash and blow-dry, use a pre-wash or pre-poo treatment first. Yes, it’s an extra step but soooo worth it IMO. It’ll add much-needed moisture to your hair and scalp and help protect your hair during the styling process too.

2. Leave out some tendrils. That’s exactly what stylist Stasha Harris did here, and it looks ridiculously cute. Keep a couple pieces of fame-framing hairs out of the braids so you can curl them and add a little extra oopmh to this style.

3. Take care of your edges. Laid edges are a perfect addition to the Sweetheart Chignon, but those baby hairs need to be taken care of, so don’t forget to rinse out your edge control product with some sulfate-free shampoo at the end of the day. Leaving it on overnight can lead to clogged pores around your hairline—plus it can dry out your edges causing breakage too.

4. Keep styling mousse handy. Keep your style looking fresh long after you’ve left the salon with a styling mousse. Apply a dollop before bed and then wrap your head with a silk headscarf to smooth flyaways while you sleep.
