It’s always fun to try something a little festive and different with your hair for holiday parties.
Lately I have been totally into the high bun. It has always intimidated me a bit because I don’t like to rat my hair. But once I figured out how to do it, I can’t stop! It’s so easy and it can prolong a hair wash for 2-3 days! It also turns any outfit from humdrum to posh. The best tutorial I’ve found is from Beth Jones (here). Do you like these outfit posts or are they annoying?

Obsessed. I’m not sure how willing I am to tease like crazy but perhaps…I’m love-love-loving this tutorial from BJonesStyle.

Thank you B.Jones!
Lately I have been really into topknots, buns, chignons (a la @OscarPRGirl below) and have been looking around for relevant instructions. The easiest way I’ve found is to either use a hair piece or place a clip around your pony tail and wrap the hair around that to make it fatter. I still haven’t grasped the whole teasing concept.
I’m hoping to add my own eventually!

When one has long hair, one is blessed with many hair options. While I tend to gravitate towards ponytails, I am enchanted by buns and chignons, intricate or tossed together and I am going to try to utilize them more in my hairstyle routine. Enjoy the inspiration.
