The big bun how to

Monday night, Alex and I hit up the Daniel Faucher Couture fashion show at The Tent during Boston Fashion Week. We had a fantastic time drinking wine, critiquing clothes (on and off the runway), and acting like rock stars. Daniel is known for his evening wear and wedding dresses and everything was beautifully crafted and detailed. (You can check out photos from the actual show on Alex's blog since she has a fancy-schmancy camera while I have a point and shoot that makes all the models look slightly deranged.) 

Out of pure coincidence, Alex and I both showed up to the show rocking big buns, which was pretty awesome. It's definitely one of my favorite hairstyles since it's a super easy way to look chic and polished -- and there's little chance of it falling flat (my pet peeve).

Check out the "how to" after the jump!

(I apologize about the weird lighting. Point and shoot plus florescent lights equals weird hair and skin colors.)

You can definitely play around with the size of your bun in step 3 -- the more times -- and the tighter -- you wrap it around the base of your pony, the smaller the bun.

Easy, right?


  1. Step two is my favorite. Literally laughing about it like a creep at my desk. But every time I get to that step, Craig looks at me like I'm some sort of a space alien. Whomp.

  2. ahahahaha I'm glad I made you giggle!

  3. Hahah. Yes. I think I'll try this with my hair tomorrow. I love days when I don't have to take a shower.

  4. Those days are seriously the best.
