Hair Personality: Which Bun Are You?

If you lack the manual dexterity to braid your hair into fishtails or pretzels, you’re in luck. After years in the top spot, the braid has a challenger that’s far more attainable: the bun. No, it’s not new—Athenian women wore the style back in ancient Greece—but the bun has been popping up everywhere from runways to red carpets in a variety of forms. Heck, you can’t log onto Pinterest without a sighting. To find the one that best fits your personality, check out these 10 options.

Last September, Glamour magazine printed a small photo of model Lizzie Miller looking happy in next to nothing. Tons of readers wrote into the magazine, saying they loved seeing such a realistic-looking woman pictured in the pages of the glossy.

Love Vandal: Sweet Embrace

Reader Shannon snapped this photo from her car (eyes on the road, please!): “I was driving to work today in San Francisco and snapped this pic from my car. It was a good way to start the morning! Sorry it’s a tiny bit blurred, but you can see it’s definitely a sweet embrace.”

Love Vandal: The Stages Of Romance

Reader Erin snapped this in Breckenridge, CO: “It made me a little bit sad, because it is true. I was in Breckenridge to hang out with a boy who I’ve passed through the “lover, love, loved” cycle with already, and after three years of not speaking, we are moving through these stages again. Hopefully I can hold us at stage two this time.”

Get Jessica Biel’s Soft Waves At Home

Jessica Biel‘s hair and makeup looked relaxed but lovely at Thursday night’s premiere of “The A-Team” in Hollywood. Her soft waves are super easy to replicate at home, especially since celebrity stylist Mara Roszak, who worked on Jessica’s hair, gave us instructions. On damp hair, apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse all over, especially on the roots. Part your hair in the center, then blow it dry using a round brush, setting the top in large pin curls at random (this adds some nice body on the top). Once the hair is dry, take out the pin curls and spritz TRESemmé Naturals Finishing Spray all over, then wrap the hair in a loose bun and let it set for 10 minutes. Unpin the bun, shake your head, and voilà, your hair will look delightfully tousled. Keep reading »
