BEAUTY BAR: Half-Bun in the Sun

BEAUTY BAR: Half-Bun in the Sun

There are few things more discouraging than spending 20+ minutes on your hair just to step outside and have it instantly ruined. All of us frizzy-haired ladies are forced to endeavor major struggles that are created by the overpowering amount of heat and humidity in the summer. It seems that no amount of products or hairspray can get our hair to just stay in place. Luckily, this Fashionista has the perfect solution: the half-bun trend.

This trend has been a favorite over the past year for many influencers such as Gigi Hadid and Chiara Ferragni as well as just everyday girls who want a fun yet relaxed hairdo. As a girl who always wears her hair down unless I’m working out, I am definitely a fan of this trend. It allows you to get your hair out of your face without committing to a full-on up-do. There are also a lot of ways that you could put your own spin on this trend. You can have your bun, loose, tight, messy or some combination of the above. The options are just about endless.

To go with this Fashionista’s more laid back style hairdo, she opted for a simple yet fun off-the-shoulder top. This shirt style has been everywhere this summer and I can see why. It’s going to help keep you cool and look fabulous. For her pants, she chose a classic pair of ripped jeans, which she cuffed at the bottom to create a cleaner look. For shoes, she opted for a pair of simple sandals. This outfit works perfectly with the hairstyle and it is a great carefree summer outfit for a casual day at your internship or for a day of shopping.

All varieties of hair textures and lengths are invited to try this trend. Experiment with your half-bun sizes and styles all summer long for a cool, on-trend summer look.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To nail the half-bun look, start with your desired hair texture. I recommend applying a hair protecting serum to help maintain its health and keep it looking shiny all day. Then start creating and playing with the bun to find your desired shape and texture. Once you find the combination you like start adding the hair tie and bobby pins. Top it off with a light amount of hairspray to prevent frizz and help keep the shape. For makeup, keep it natural with some mascara, tinted moisturizer and lip balm. That’s all there is to it, so try it out; effortless beauty awaits!
