BEAUTY BAR: Half-Bun Hottie

July 30th, 2015 at 2:00am

Is the summer heat causing your kinky curls or straight strands to frizz? If you’re like me and like to wear your hair down, but want to keep from looking like a sweaty mess during the warm weather, then you’re in luck. I have the perfect solution: the half-bun!

This Fashionista is rocking the half-bun trend. Not only is this hairstyle totally adorable, but it is also a practical choice for combating the heat. With half of her hair up in a tight topknot, she is able to keep the hair off her face while still showing off her gorgeous natural curls. This is the perfect solution for someone like me; I don’t necessarily want all of my hair up in a bun or ponytail, but wearing it all down isn’t an option with the sweltering summer weather. Not sacrificing style for practicality, it’s no wonder that the half-bun has been a major trend this season.

In addition to her totally trendy tresses, this Fashionista’s style is also on point. She kept her outfit as carefree as her hair with a simple striped dress and high top sneakers. Her funky socks and fun fringe bag gave her look a cute and quirky vibe, while her silver and turquoise rings showed off her personal style. Keeping her makeup to a minimal, this Fashionista was able to create the perfect look that will have her looking chic and feeling cool all summer long.

Whether your hair is short, long, curly or straight, the half-bun is a style anyone can rock. Experiment with different textures, loose and tight topknots and high and low buns for a variety of looks you can rock all summer long.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To get the perfect disheveled “I woke up like this” look while still appearing put together, start with your desired hair texture. Whether that’s curly or straight, use a heat protection spray to keep hair healthy and hydrated. Pull half of your hair into your preferred bun style and secure with an elastic and a few bobby pins. Spray lightly with hairspray to prevent frizz and keep hair in place. Finish with a tinted moisturizer and a swipe of mascara for a clean, natural look that is as fun and carefree as summer.
