Summer has arrived in San Francisco (yes, summer in October!) and the heat waves prompt us to get our hair up and off our necks to cool things down. So what are the options you ask… Ponytails can be fun, if done well, but are a little plain. Tacky plastic “chip clips” or claws that you would put on your opened bag of Doritos are definitely out of the question! So what are we left with? BUNS!! They look great in your hair when it’s freshly washed, and if your hair is a little dirty, even better! A little grit will give the bun texture and help keep it in place. Buns can be sleek and sophisticated, romantic and alluring or messy and carefree. They can be formed into many shapes and sizes and strategically placed on the head to accent and define face shapes. Start your bun with the basic ponytail, then twist, knot or braid the hair to create your own unique bun. The possibilities are endless. The sun is out, it’s warm, so show off your BUNS!
