I have been practising different styles with my barnet. Day to day, I end up with a messy ponytail or a sort of twisted bun thing, as well as my unstructured bun. But sometimes you need to look a bit more polished. That’s where the high bun comes in.
There’s something very graceful about it, it reminds me of ballerinas and princesses. A bun is a sure-fire way to inject a touch of elegance and femininity into a look. Sadly, I am about as graceful and co-ordinated as an ice-skating giraffe, so I need a bit of help to recreate this look. Thankfully, there are plenty of tools on the market to help me out.
Happily, most high street fashion stores sell them (I got mine from H&M for £1.99) and if, like me, you have longish hair that needs an extra bit of help, they are brill. And soooo easy!
Ok, its a bit messy and needs tidying up a fair bit, but I like it. It also works well as a low side bun. My hair is too long to just pin underneath, so I had to sweep it clockwise around, holding the donut in place. All in all, it didn’t take long, but looks like I’ve made loads of effort. And, more importantly, I feel really pretty.
Buns? Donuts? Tasty! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I’ll get me coat.
