Side chignon

Kater tried out the side chignon tutorial, and it worked!! Bravo!

P.S. Her jacket looks like these, which I adore. Perfect for walks through the woods.

I was so impressed when I saw this photo over the weekend, I still haven't gotten mine to look the way I want it! I need more practice, but I'm not giving up, it is too cute not to wear for at least one event this season.

p.s. Thanks so much for the link love on Friday!! Totally made my day!

It's such a sweet look for parties and even everyday (as you picture it here)!!!!

I had it done, but I'm going to try to do it myself per the tutorial you reposted! Thanks for sharing!

Design Girl said...

Love that side chignon for my wedding in June! Thanks!

Bronwyn said...

Can I just say I love where you live?

kater said...

Oh my word! I am so excited about this! Thank you so much for posting! Ahh!

I did this twice--again the next day for a marathon reading to To Kill a Mockingbord event, and it came out much better on the second try!

For everyone who asked, the coat is the stadium cloth elements coat from J. Crew. I live in Upstate, NY, so this picture is actually from Saratoga :D

Thank you so, so much Joanna for posting me! I'm so thrilled, your's is one of my absolute favorite blogs!

"Volare" said...

@kater - About how long is your hair? I'm wondering if my hair is actually too long for this to work. Too much leftover...

Kiley said...

It looks very cute but more like a "wedding look" in this picture. Maybe because she's standing in front of a church, LoL

Anna said...

i love this! LOVE.

Sher said...

I really adore Kater's blog! She has the loveliest hair and I envy her porcelain skin:)

Tera Phomospha said...

When I see hair like this I wish I wouldn't have cut my long locks 2 years ago. Or at least would have let them grow back. Stunning!

BeautyParler said...

Love the side look! I did a similar look for a wedding & it looked so elegant.

Erin said...

I tried it, too. Unfortunately, my locale isn't as lovely as Katie's.

I am in love with this hairstyle! I'm still in the process of growing mine out, but maybe with some torture and bobby pins, I'll make it work (yes, I am channeling Tim Gunn).

Great post!
I reblogged. :)

Power Balance is important to not also, all the testimonials say that once power balance bracelet is tried it is impossible to part with it. It is said because it works in such a perfect harmony with your body one simply doesn't want to take it off. Also power balance neoprene is important to note that wristband alone is not enough to accomplish some task.
