BEAUTY BAR: Buns N' Roses

The bun: a simple, yet graceful hairstyle that can be worn with any outfit, for any occasion. They are super easy to do and they look amazing on guys and girls alike. In fact, “man-buns” have been all the rage recently, and taken the fashion world by storm. The best thing about this style is its ability to quickly go from something messy and cute, to intricate and unique. The versatility of this hairstyle is seemingly endless. Therefore, it’s no surprise why buns are a fan favorite for many people.

When most people think of buns, they usually picture a messy top-knot for school or an elaborate updo for a wedding, but they can be so much more! This Fashionista has styled her bun with braids (a popular choice), giving the hairstyle a more three-dimensional and interesting design. Often times, braids can effect how casual or formal a bun looks depending on the types and how many are used. This Fashionista’s hairstyle takes two cornrow braids and uses their tails to form the bun at the nape of her neck, giving it a “quilted” texture. Boom, instant flair!

While this Fashionista’s overall look is casual, a great look for a girl’s night out or dinner with the family, her kimono and necklace give it that extra glam that lets anyone who sees her know she’s dressed to impress. This Fashionista’s braided bun is a great complement to her kimono because it looks classy without being too formal.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this look, you’ll need hair ties to catch the bun, bobby pins to pin down any loose hairs and some hairspray to add shine and a long-lasting hold. Remember, braids are an optional addition, but they definitely add a flirty punch!
