How to Create a Hair Bun for Your Wedding

Posted November 4, 2011 | 11 Comments

Happy Friday! Today, we’re talking about wedding buns… and, no, not the fitness kind (though we’ll be covering that in a fitness post coming up soon). Today, we’re talking about how to create a hair bun for your wedding. We recently talked about how to get more volume in your hair, how to perfect a braided hairstyle and how to do a side chignon, and today we’re honing in on the hair bun which was once only synonymous with a messy, unkempt hair style. Today, though, hair buns are in… and, they’re more popular than you may think. Read on to see how you can incorporate a hair bun into your wedding – and beyond – with terrific inspiration from around the web.

Up first, Love Maegan shows us how to combine a braid (love!) and a bun in one fabulous hairstyle. Now that my hair is finally long enough, I’ll have to give this one a try over the weekend.

    I always love seeing messy up-do’s. You get to look super cute and get away without having to fuss with your hair. And coming from a girls with big curls…it’s nice to have a break! lol
