Cute Buns

I've always struggled to pull off a messy bun.   You know the ones I'm talking about, the buns that look effortless, like, "Oh, I just didn't have time to do my hair today, so I just put it up."  Which we all know is a lie.  Those little tendrils, that fall around the face just so, the slight volume at the crown, so hair doesn't look slicked back - it's really an art form.  I've always been incredibly envious of those who can make a simple knot look impossibly chic and fresh for years now.  But while reading Us Weekly, Whitney Port gave a hair tutorial letting us know how she pulls off her topknot bun.  She explains:

- Apply volumizer to create a lift at the hairline.  
- Wrap the front section of hair around a curling iron.  
- Pull up hair into a genie pony tail.
- Split the pony into 4 sections, looping each towards the center of the bun.
- Place pins to hold the bun.

I was a bit confused by the directions, but once I played around with it, I found it really did create a wonderful little bun!   It's been perfect on hot days when I want to look put together but don't want to deal with my hair.
