  15. Ugh, love the bun thing. And yes, the first thing I thought when I saw the title of your post was Baby Got Back...

    Anyway, before I cut my hair in August, I would wear a bun like that almost every day. It was before it was cool to wear a bun...I'm a trendsetter :) Now I'm desperate to have long hair again. I hate having short hair...

  24. I just put my hair up in a messy bun this morning because I was running late and now all day I keep thinking, I love this, I need to do it more often! How funny you would post about it today!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've FINALLY mastered the french messy bun in the first photo, although it still doesn't look that awesome but that's on my fine hair. Now that I have bangs, I have been putting it up more than ever, in fact, I think I like it up better than down which is REALLY weird for me!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have a stupid amount of hair that gets matted, yes actually matted, very easily, so at times I actually live, eat & breath the bun! My friend was shocked one day when I finally turned up with my hair down. She was like, "you woke up with the bun, you went to sleep with the bun, I'm done with the bun!" It often still makes a comeback with some big vintage style earrings, ala Whitney Port.

  27. Love a great bun! Have you tried spin pins? They are the most genius invention EVER for holding a bun in place. You can get them at CVS, Walgreens, etc. Definitely check them out!

  28. I love the bun and do my hair that way about 80% of the time lol... I often don't have time to straighten it in the morning and it looks funny if I put it in a pony without straightening it so it leaves me with limited options.

  29. LOVE the bun look. This is my hair style almost every day. It's easy and it works for me. I just need to learn to do some different kinds of buns for a little variety.

  30. How many points do I get if I know every word to baby got back and proceeded in singing it even before I read your post? Oh and I'm all about the buns. It's part of why I've been growing out my hair for 2 years.

  51. GORGEOUS. I love buns -- and I love my "spin pins." I keep thinking of doing a vlog to show how to use them, but I'm a little shy. ;) Hahaha.

  53. Are we on the same wave length today? Buns? Love messy buns but I cannot achieve such a beautiful messy bun. It looks efforless but I guess it still requires some hairstyling skills.

  54. i am SOOOO loving the whole bun thing...i just can't figure out how to do it! these are awesome pics!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm so back and forth about long hair and short hair. Every day - maybe more than once/day, I change my mind about long/short... long/short... I'm still undecided!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ummm we must be channeling each other because I was definitely singing some Sir Mix a lot before I even saw your post!!!!

  57. i love buns! so chic and easy.

  58. Typically, I would say "over it"... Usually, my hair is in a bun because I am having a bad hair day. But, if buns looked like the photos here, I would say "it is in"...

  60. Well if you have seen any of my pics you would know that I LOVE the bun..I actually wore it growing up because I danced ballet..but this bun is much sexier and is so much fun when your hair is greasy and you don't have time to wash it!!! Love it!

  65. i love buns. i think if done right they are very chic. so sad that i have short hair and only recently was able to do a pseudo bun with the help of five to ten pins. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Am a TOTAL sucker for buns-easy to do, and they look as good a little mussed up as they do sleek! What could be better?

    ReplyDelete
  67. always up for buns! in fact it's happening on my head right at this very moment. those ones all have lovely random, soft wisps though...i'm working on mastering such haphazard perfection. ♥
