Fash Trends - Fabulous Buns


Whether you're strutting through New York's Fashion District or attending a fancy holiday event, there's no denying that the ballerina bun has become 2011's most versatile hairstyle. For those of you first timers to the bun world, don't let this classic updo intimidate you. The stylish alternative to a ponytail is actually incredibly easy to achieve. And the best part... there's no right or wrong way to wear it. You can take the messy route or opt for a more sleek alternative, either way the secret is to calmly manipulate your hair and use bobby pins to tame the strays. Not only does it give you a clean, powerful and polished look but it only takes a minute to create. Below are some of my favorite celebrities rocking beautiful buns as their stylish ensembles best accessory. Get inspired by their fashion forward updo's and incorporate them as a stunning staple into your fall wardrobe. I promise after a few tries, it'll seem as easy as a ponytail. Which celebrity do you think is rocking the best bun?

  50. Love the look. They have great 'doughnuts' at primark to create a big bun. You just have to twirl your hair around it :-)

  63. A beautiful bun! It looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love Whitney's, Lauren's and Giuliana's the most because they are kind of undone in a way. I don't think that Kim should be wearing such statement earrings with the bun though. I feel there's too much going on with all of that and the dress.

    ReplyDelete
  65. so classy!
    shame that my hair's too short for a real bun.
