Braids, BUNS, Top Knots, Fishtails- Oh MY!

9 comments

I’m so loving this hair trend right now! They are here to stay too.

We first saw the fishtail craze over the summer, and it isn’t going anywhere this Fall/Winter season either. {{Yay!!}} Seriously, a fishtail braid can work for any occasion: work, school, errands or even a hot date. It may look intricate, but I’m here to tell you it is so easy-peasy.

Harper’s Bazaar recently featured an article on the rise of the “fun bun”. The top knot is a fall hairstyle that you can rock with any fashion style. We’ve seen adorable top knots on celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, and Gwen Stefani. Each one staying true to their glam, boho, and rocker, fashion styles.

I’m obsessed! Why? Because they are so chic, stylish, a little edgy, and not to mention, so gorgeous! A hair-spiration!

For those of you with shorter hair styles, not to worry because you can easily add a clip-in extension, or two, to improvise. You can achieve a whole new look + still be a part of the fun.

Now remember, the idea is to create a look that is NOT precise. Once you’ve completed either look, use your fingers to pull each section of the braid out, or slightly tug on each side of the top knot to loosen. This will add life, texture, and overall visual appeal, to the look. Unless you’re a professional ballerina, that bun should not be perfect!

For all you mamas, we can’t forget about our little divas! I adjust the style accordingly. For my daughter, I regularly do side braids, heart braids, and cute little buns {<<—she is soo not a fan of buns, so bribery may be necessary ;)}

My fav ❤

Here are some of my beautiful friends and their versions of the trend for hair-spiration and viewing pleasure:

Fun, right? Whatever your style is one of these will surely work for you. It gives us so many options to our everyday hair routine.

Please share with me some of your favs!

Love, LL

    1. I love that too! I just saw at a beauty supply their version of a sock bun that looks way different then the sock I have been using from my husbands drawer. 🙂 I haven’t tried it yet, but I just might to see the difference. Thanks for reading! xo
