I’ve probably successfully put my hair up about, oh, twice in my lifetime. That “effortless chic” look of throwing together a bun just doesn’t seem to sit with my hair, and don’t even get me started on the stressful parade of updos I had for high school dances (let’s just say I sat at Paul Mitchell for four hours one time where two girls worked on my hair simultaneously and one of them was visibly sweating).
This past year, though, I suddenly found myself pinning this and twisting that and being a little more adventurous–even if the impulse was mostly motivated by laziness. Then I started finding these great updo tutorials from A Cup of Jo and, most recently, fell in love with this gorgeous Braided Top Bun. I think it’s so youthful, fun, and romantically bohemian. What do you guys think? Would you try out this hairstyle? And more importantly, what outfits would you pair it with? :)
