Give Tired Buns A Twist With These 4 Fresh Styles

[UPDATED: This post was originally published on May 14.]
A wise man once said, "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hon." We totally agree — a chick with a fierce bun rules. And while most gals lean toward easy top knots, we’ve definitely "bun there, done that," so to speak.
What we're really craving is a style that takes it to the next level, so we teamed up with one of S.F.’s most stylish hairstylists, Emily Bassolino of Fahrenheit Salon, to show us four DIY buns with a super-fresh twist. From upside-down braids to a twisty topper, the hair guru styled real-girl model Kim Schultz to perfection…four times! Um, we believe these styles might even make Lauren Conrad do a double take. Here, our step-by-step guide to scoring summer's best buns.
