THE HALF BUN


I've fallen in love with a new hair style – the half bun. You may have noticed the mild obsession if you follow me on Pinterest. I don't know what it is about it. I mean, I know it's an unusual look, but I just can't get enough of it. Maybe it's the granola eating hippy in me trying to climb its way out. At any rate, it's what I've been sporting at work most days of late. I've enjoyed pairing it with either a graphic eye or a bold lip in an attempt to keep it looking somewhat edgy and not just like I forgot to wash my hair for a week and now I'm running with it. So what do you guys think? Chic or filthy hippy?

  7. I've done this a couple of times, but it always seems to hurt my head at the end of the day? I don't really know what that's about haha! Looks gorgeous on you though x

  9. I feel like I'm not "cool" enough to pull off this hairstyle even though I love it. I need some of that nose ring badass-ness.

  10. I think it looks amazing on you! This is how I have my hair to get ready in a morning and sometimes wonder if I could leave the house sporting the unusual hair do.

  15. I love it! I've been wearing my hair like this as well, but I couldn't get it look quite so neat/chic as you did! I also love it paired with the liner, looks great! :)

  16. I love this look but somehow aren't able to wear it. I can't really part my hair that way, it will always be tangled the worst it's ever been afterwards :/

  20. Ha! Just got my sister to dye it. So thank you.

  21. Quick and easy... this accurately describes 75% of why I like this style too.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It would be so nice with your curly hair!

  23. Bobby pins are the answer. Also a hair straightener.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'll never stop loving braids. They're just perfectly (somehow?) effortless and beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahaha I'm literally the least bad ass person on the planet. But good to know my nose ring is making people think otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Seriously, bobby pins. I tried taking photos first without pinning it and I realized how messy it looked. So I just used a few in to secure the bun more to the base of my head.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow I just looked at your blog and your instagram and your photos are so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I get that so badly with full top knots sometimes. I don't know why it happens only sometimes, but that feeling where you take your hair down at the end of the day and it just hurts like crazy... not a good feeling.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yeahhh try it out! I'd love to see it on you.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you! I tried to really bulk up my eyeliner this time, though it's a challenge with my eye shape.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha a guy at work said I looked like a samurai. Clearly there's a vibe going on here. I love the short hair with the half bun. This picture is originally what got me obsessed with the hairsyle.

  32. I don't know why, but you wearing this hairstyle, with that graphic liner makes me think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon hahaha. It's a good thing, you rock that half bun girl! I've been trying to figure out how to wear it myself, but it only works when I'm not trying and never when I actually want to wear it out…go figure ;) xx

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hahaha, awesome! And it's funny I already knew what photo you were talking about before I clicked on the link. If I ever figure it out I'll post pics and link back to you ;) xx

  37. I love the half bun look, its definetely a twist on the classci half up half down x

  38. I think that too - that some people will probably think it looks silly. But then I just wear it out anyways and soon I forget about that feeling. You should do it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the classic half up half down too. It's more relaxed and elegant.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I absolutely love it. Looks amazing on you!


    Also, pairing it with a winged eyeliner was a genius idea; it really completes the edgy look. That, and your nose ring!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You look stunning girl! I always do that hairstyle when I'm at home and it sort of makes me feel like Pocahontas father ( please don't ask :P ) so the next step is taking it outside :) Love the photo too, you're looking ah-mazing :)
