In Groundhog Day
fashion, every morning of
high school and college (and, who am I kidding, long beyond), I would wake up
and evaluate my fine, frizzy waves in the mirror. I'd look at the time, realize there's absolutely no way to tame that mess in so short a period, and say, "Screw it, I'm just going to put it up in a bun."
describe these as years of wasted potential, of flat-ironed 'dos and waves that
never came to be. You could also
think of them as years wasted on not-quite-there
buns — ones thrown together thoughtlessly with damp, bending-every-which-way
all, there are plenty of ways to make the everyday, go-to hairstyle look chic
and fresh. The last couple of seasons on the runways, we've been
seeing plenty of plays on the bun in the form of top knots, ballerinas, and
chignons — both purposely messy and impossibly polished. Most of them are
quite easy to pull off at home. And, not one of them will make you look like
you just rolled out of bed — at least not in a bad way.
time you're all "I feel sloppy because I don't have time to get my hair out of
its perpetual slept-on purgatory," look to these runway creations for
inspiration. With a few slight tweaks, you can make the laziest of hairstyles
look downright elegant, current, and not at all just-came-from-the-gym (unless
you like it that way, of course).
ahead: We've got buns, hon.
