I love buns: fun buns, sock buns, bow buns and top knots. I wear buns almost daily and they’re the easiest thing to do with my hair. I have thick, wavy hair and if I don’t have the time or energy to make it all pretty and straight then up it goes into a little knot at the top of my head.
I think buns are great but that doesn’t mean they haven’t gotten me into some awkward situations like not being able to sit up straight in the car because my bun is so high it keeps hitting the roof. The most embarrassing thing though was something I said. I have an affinity with taking pictures of my hair on Instagram and I commented once to my sister that “I really like taking photos of my buns” – cue awkward innuendos. It’s one of the funnier things I’ve said.
I have just recently tried the sock bun and although it’s not the quickest and easiest bun to put my hair into it is close becoming my favourite. The bow bun is another lovely one that really is just pretty. I learned how to do it on Elycia’s blog. The top knot is the easiest because all i have to do is twist my hair up at the top of my head. And as far as fun buns go, well, I think that they’re all pretty fun.
What is your favourite type of bun or hairstyle?
