Twist Braid Chignon Inspired by The Duchess of Cambridge
My favorite look from The Duchess of Cambridge's recent tour to India was this beautiful mint lace dress from Temperley. What an exquisite dress. I can just imagine attending a garden tea party in something so lovely.
I also loved the braided chignon in her hair, and in this week's video, I recreate the chignon for you. This look is easy to achieve for anyone with medium to long hair.

I am writing this message to say a big thank you for adding to my life for the better.
I have only been following you for a few short weeks and have already noticed positive outcomes.
I am writing this after just having ended a phone call where I found out that I got a new job that I had recently interviewed for.
I just had to write to you because my new employer told me that one of the reasons he hired me is because he noticed my poise during the interview! He actually used that exact word!
I thought you might be pleased:)
Keep up the good work. And thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Hi Tera, I was thrilled to no end after reading that your interviewer was impressed with your poise. I firmly believe that poise is a marvelous secret tool that we can use to enhance our lives. I am so happy for you. Congratulations on your new job!
Let me know if you try out this chignon for yourself. Send me a picture over social media using the hashtag #MADAMECHIC
See you soon!
