A representative leaving mushroom and bun (7)


I believe the answer is:


'bun' is the definition.

I cannot understand how the rest of the clue works.

(Other definitions for chignon that I've seen before include "Arrangement of coil of hair" , "Roll of hair worn at the nape" , "Roll of hair worn at the back of the head" , "Hairstyle" , "Topknot" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times and The Independent.
