Latest Trend: Big Buns

It’s no longer what girls have going on in the back anymore that’s turning heads. The big hair buns are reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn and the women in James Bond films. Their elegance compliments any cocktail dress and can even be turned “day-appropriate” if done correctly.

Glamour’s February issue (page 87) exemplifies the right way to do the sky-high bun. It has to be sitting on the crown of your head as opposed to directly on top. Most of the buns we see in Hollywood are slicked back which is extremely chic and timeless. However, don’t forget a few tendrils framing your face or leaving your side bangs down still won’t draw any attention away from the bun.

For a  day look, I’d twist the hair into a bun creating a sort of “cinna-bun” look. They’re more informal than the perfectly done, nighttime do. Also, a boat neck tee allows you to show a little shoulder and melds well with an up-do.

As far as your makeup goes, with a hairstyle as dramatic as a high bun, the only heavy makeup I would recommend is a strong use of eyeliner. Wing the liner out to revert back to the days when the look was most popular. Highlight your cheekbones with your favorite blush since the bone structure of your face will, for sure, be on display for this look. Keep your skin looking dewy and regardless of how many squats you’ve been doing that week, all eyes will be on your bun…hair bun.
