want to thank Refinery29 for these awesome pictures and ideas. =]
Love all of these "do's" because they all look so easy and relaxed (not that they are easy or relaxed per say). These only reminded me of how horrible I am at making my own ballet bun. I refuse to hairsprary/gel my hair unless it's for a performance because it looks too plastered and phony for me (don't get me wrong, it looks great on some girls). I just hate the fact that I'm damaging my hair just to get rid of wispies (fyi "wispies" isn't even a word yet so i hope you hadn't already whipped out your dictionaries. But in ballet aesthetic terms, it is the hair that sticks out... not flat to the skull. aka "fly-aways"). I have the absolute worst wispies. I don't deny it. It's almost clown-like.
Ok, so I'm not an uptight bunhead... but these styles are awesome, and I will try to attempt some of them. I need something for my commencement dinner ceremony!!
psst... is it really necessary to straighten or curl/diffuse, stiffen, and treat your hair just for these styles? HECK NO! Maybe that's just me and my hate for hairspray and other hair-killers speaking, but whatever. If you want to spend all that time and money....
|Love how simple this is. Much to my teachers' discretion, I imitate a similar 'bump' in the front, but my bun is much higher. Would love to see that model trying to spot her head in fouettes with this bun.|
|simply n' classy. just find a feather or gems... anything really, and just stick em' in!|
|"quick n' fast" is what my grandpa always says. the classic low bun.|
