BEAUTY BAR: Have The Top Knot

The top knot and messy bun have always been there for us in our time of need. When you have a bad hair day, you don’t have a ton of time to get ready or you’re just feeling a little lazy, a bun is always the way to go. It’s simple, reliable and it can actually look incredibly chic. Not to mention your hair will accentuate your outfit instead of taking attention away from it. It’s hard to go wrong with a bun, whether it’s sleek and tight or casual and loose, because they are so versatile, practical and can be accessorized in so many ways.

This Fashionista is totally rocking the basic bun look. She was running around campus so this hairstyle was perfect because it kept her hair out of her face while still looking cute, and it didn’t distract anyone from her adorable boho look. This Fashionista’s bun is smooth and neat but not super tight. It’s still casual, but it doesn’t look sloppy when paired with her casual ensemble. She decided to accent her bun with an awesome printed headband. The headband is soft and wide so it’s super comfy and will keep any baby hairs and flyaways back. The print resembles tie-dye and coordinates perfectly with her free-spirited look. The headband takes this hairdo from ordinary to extraordinary. Keep in mind that any hair accessory like a jeweled barrette, a funky headband or hair wrap or a bow will take a bun or top knot to the next level. Be beautiful, and bun it up!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: The achieve this style, first use an anti-frizz product so that your bun is smooth and can stand up against the summer humidity. Next, pull your hair into a ponytail and twist it, then secure with a hair elastic similar to your hair color or a spiral shaped pin. To complete this look, slide on your soft headband in a bohemian print.
