The Super High Bun

High buns are this season most popular hair trend. It’s a refreshing take on the classic neat and tidy ballerina bun. It’s a little wispy, a little messy, but it’s always elegant.

Here’s a look at some of my favourites:

Whitney Port: Classic High Bun

Jessica Alba: Ballerina Bun with headband for modern flare

Kate Bosworth: Sock Bun, leaving no room for imperfection.

Vanessa Hudgens: Messy High Bun

Kourtney Kardashian: Twisted High Bun


So how can you achieve this look?

Here’s a step-by-step guide from A Cup of Jo

Step 1: Make your hair dirty. After showering, you can massage in Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion. Or you can just wash your hair less often and use a dry shampoo to keep your hair from getting greasy.

Step 2: Next, pull together your hair and hold it straight up, like a Lucky Troll Doll

Step 3: Then twist your hair down to a few inches above the crown.

Step 4: Wrap your hair around itself until it forms a loose bun, right on top of your head

Step 5: Pin the bun in place with bobby pins. Anywhere from four to eight, depending on how thick your hair is. You want it loose but secure.

Step 6: Finally, pull loose strands of hair from the nape of your neck and around your face to make it look like you’ve worn the bun all day. Voila! The perfect bun!

Would you try this do?

    • These buns are so stylish. I’m also seeing them pop up in wedding magazines. I don’t think I’d do it for my wedding, maybe if I was a guest. But, I still believe these are great looks for date night or even a night out with the girls. Thanks for the comment.
