Courtney Cox (pictured here at the Crystal + Lucy Awards) was the latest recently in a long line of celebrities to sport the hairstyle-of-the-moment:

The side chignon.

I think it's a pretty update on a classic look, though some celebs have pulled it off better than others.

The best part about this look is that if you have medium-length or longer hair, it's easy to get the look yourself!

Here's how.


Glamour has fantastic step-by-step instructions (with plenty of pictures) on how to do the side chignon yourself. The site suggests it for a wedding, although I don't think I'd do this as a bride. It's a little too trendy for such a timeless occasion.

However, you can use the instructions with or without a white dress!

Do an image search on Yahoo! for side chignons and you'll find all kinds of lovely photographic examples of celebrities wearing the look, from Cate Blanchett to Alexis Bledel.

For those who prefer video instructions, offers a great video tutorial on the look. Check it out for yourself:
