Buns are back for fall, and they’re not your typical tight, matronly, constricted ballerina buns. Occasionally, I’ll come across a red-carpet or runway hairstyle that makes me “ooh” and “ah.” This is one such look:
A-MAH-zing. Love, love, love at first sight. Gillian Zinser really captures “effortlessly chic” with this updo : it’s easy, modern, and youthful.
I am crazy about the messy “un-done” look of GZ’s bun: it sits high on top of her head, and it’s piece-y, unkempt and playful. It’s a perfect style for those on-the-go days where you don’t have time for a blow-out, and you’re tired of your old, blah ponytail.
Whereas the buns of latter days are typically thought of as being appropriate for corporate functions and black-tie events, this season we’re seeing a fresh, new, casual interpretation of this classic updo.
The “Minimalist” bun : light makeup, red lip, simple.
If you crave something a little more polished and refined, try the look on the right.
So how do you pull off this hairstyle, anyway?
I’m all for laid-back, easy elegance.
