Summer is really here… well, not technically. But its hot, so yes, summer it is. When I was in University, I loved having my hair up in a bun, especially when it got hot. So for the past two weeks, I’ve been wearing my hair in a bun for a change.
I just love up-do’s in general. I love how they make me feel and look a bit youthful and fresh faced. I feel like my skin just looks better with my hair up (or it could just be the skin products I use lol). I love buns, ponytails, anything that leaves all the hair out of my face really.
I don’t wear my hair like this enough, because… protective styling. And its probably been three years since I last wore my hair in a bun, and I kind of missed it. People have said they don’t recommend buns, because of the main fear – it will rip out your edges. But I have to disagree… I think that only becomes a concern if you pull your hair back tightly (which I don’t do).
So why should you try to wear your hair in a bun for summer?
-It keeps you looking and feeling fresh faced
-It makes all your features on your face pop
-Its an easy-to-do, easy styling, quick fix to your hair problems
-Its a simple way to look elegant and soft, without really trying
-It looks cute… need I say more?

What do you think? Are buns something you’re willing to try this summer or are you already on the bun train? Let me know in the comments.
