Bun heads

You asked, I deliver! I've gotten lots of requests lately to do a tutorial for my designated "top knot" (as seen here, here and here). Get ready for the easiest hair tutorial yet. All you need is a hair tie, truly. Something to note, best if done with day two or day three of unwashed hair.


STEP ONE: Give hair a good toss to add texture.
STEP TWO: Gather hair into a pony tail using fingers, leaving a slight side part to top of head. Remember, the messier the better! Hold pony tail with your hand (don't use your hair tie yet).
STEP THREE: With free hand, loosely wrap hair around the pony tail in counter clockwise motion.
STEP FOUR: Tuck end pieces under the newly formed bun, then secure with hair tie.




Super easy and super fun for those relaxed days. Also, today you can find me on Kabinet! Kabinet is a great site where you can share your favorite skin, hair and body care products with friends while also finding great recommendations through other people. They make it super easy by breaking it down by skin type, hair color, etc. I have loved playing around with it the past week, adding items to my wishlist and seeing what other people are using (especially for their hair)! If you want to join in on the fun, start here! Make sure to look me up!!

  1. That last photo of you is daaahhhling.

    I need to work on making my buns messier (isn't that supposed to be the easy part?) Mine always look too tight and pulled back.

  25. First of all I'm so glad you shared this because I really wish I could make a "messy" top bun that doesn't look like I just slept 8 days on it and also because you said it works better after a couple of days of unwashed hair. Your my kinda gal pal ;)

  26. Too easy! I've been a tad lazy with mine since I had super long hair last year a hair tie would never hold it in place so I would improvise with the tiniest (possible) black hair clip. Hahaha, yeah I'm sure it looks ghastly from behind but from the front uber awesome. And yeah my hair's been cut since but I've been lazy and kept the clip lol. It's a habit I need to break...
