BEAUTY BAR: Sun's Out, Buns Out!

What is one hairstyle that has been around for centuries yet still seems to be reinvented every year? This same hairstyle can be either messy or extremely kempt and still convey a sense of sophistication. Do you have any idea yet? It’s the bun! Buns have become a quite literal rising trend, especially within the last decade. Several hundred different techniques have emerged to suit any style out there. From braided to sock buns, there’s a bun for any girl, guy, weather or event. This hair-do is great for anyone who isn’t exactly sure what hair to wear or someone wanting to try something a bit more creative such as this Fashionista.

One of the best ways to accent a detailed up-do is to keep your outfit simple with a neutral color palette. This Fashionista chose to complement her braided bun with an ensemble consisting of a chic A-line skirt, crochet top, fringe belt and nude heels. A-line skirts are the perfect way to keep cool on a hot summer’s day while adding a touch of elegance. They are also extremely convertible because you can choose from wide range of top options such as a cropped T-shirt or a peasant blouse. Fringe has made a major comeback since the ‘70s. During the past few years, fringe has become a staple in both spring and summer fashions and has even impacted accessories, as shown with this Fashionista’s belt.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: The great thing about hair buns is how versatile they are. This Fashionista pointed out that she often looks to sites such as YouTube and Pinterest for her bun inspirations. Most hair buns are easy to create and even easier to maintain. They receive my summer style stamp of approval.
