buns are already emerging as a sizzling hot 2012 hair trend making
numerous appearances on the catwalks during the Fashion Weeks and
amongst celebs on the red carpet at the Oscars! We love the bun especially when hair extensions are used to make it super thick and full and we can see them becoming
huuuuge in the celeb and fashion world this year so we thought we could give our
lovely followers a heads up of whatís to come!
the Fashion Weeks we saw a mixture of neatly created tight hair buns as
well as messy Ďbed-headí buns. Rick Owens created an amazing neatly
twisted hair bun which sits low at the back of the head. The twisted bun
takes a different approach from the usual ballerina bun we are so fond
of! Once in a ponytail the hair is separated into numerous different
sections, twisted tightly and looped over or under the next strand of
hair next to it and simply kept in place with some hair pins! SO easy to
re-create yet such a dramatic effect! Thanks for the idea Rick!
and Gabana also made use of hair buns in their catwalk show! Their buns
portray a softer cutesy appeal as it is not as neat and tight as Ricks
style... but the D&G bun looks fabulous none the less being twisted
and taken right to the bottom of the neck. Itís so simple to re-create
too; tie the hair into a ponytail, separate into two sections... the
main piece should be from the middle of the ponytail and a little bigger
than the second piece of hair which you should take from the side of
the ponytail. Twist the main section first, creating a bun shape and
securing with hair pins, then itís time to twist the second piece which
then goes around the main bun - again secure with hair pins and you have
your very own D & G inspired hair bun! Beautiful!
on to the Oscars... where we saw an array of different hair buns worn
by many a celeb - The two that stood out to us the most on the red
carpet were the gorgeous Jennifer Lopezís glam bun and Berenice Bejo who
took a different approach and added a plait to the bun phenomenon! We
went for a high updo hair bun...following the trends from the catwalks
and adding subtle twists to the hair before securing to create a thick
and full bun. Showing us all that hair buns donít have to be associated
with laziness or just worn when we hit the gym....they can be created to
suit almost any occasion. And if theyíre good enough for J.Lo then
theyíre good enough for us!
Bejo took two inspirations from the catwalk and combined both into one
spectacular looking style! With both plaits and hair buns being bang
on-trend at the moment we can do nothing but give props to the brilliant
Berenice! The hair plait is created from the front of the hair reaching from
the opposite side (which will be neatly pulled back into the bun) on
one single side and taken round to the back middle area of the head
where it transforms and is kept into a hair bun... Wowsa! Nothing but
admiration for this hair style!
doesnít end there either...you can jazz up your own hair bun with
numerous different hair accessories; from feathers to hair scarfs to
flowers, almost anything can be included in your bun....your hair is
what you make it!
hair bun do you guys think is the best?! Itís a toughie, we canít make
our minds up so let us know what you all think on Twitter or on the
