For his spring/summer 2016 collection, Valentino showed off models that took the runway wearing a chic chignon placed at the top of their heads. What was unique about the top knot? It was amped up with four inverted braids that ran from the bottom of the neck to the where the bun began. Dior created a similar look, with French braids incorporated onto the top of the head to meet a top bun.

If you're a fan of minimalism, this look is for you. The low bun is a romantic and put-together take on the hairstyle that keeps hair out of the way and looks super elegant! To get this look, part your hair down the middle, then pull it to the lower back of your head.
