Considering the first decade and a half of my life was spent with my hair in a bun—ballet bunhead here!—it's no wonder the classic and easy style is one of my favorites. I remember fussing as a kid over fly-aways, or "wispies" as I used to call them, and making my hair as tight and slicked back as possible, nowadays I prefer my buns to be perfectly messy with an undone look. Below are some variations that are currently inspiring me to get creative in the bun department.
High and shaped like a fan. Side note, how cool is her makeup?!
Full and thick.
Messy and low with volume at the crown.
Extra piecey "wispies".
Top bun, sitting smack dab on top.
An image from a recent photo shoot I did with Ariel Gordon Jewelry. Loved this chunky bun the hairstylist created. See more images from the shoot here.
