I've been checking out the newest trends in hairstyles and it seems like the high bun is the next big thing. It's been called by a number of names So-Ho Bun, Top Knot, High Bun, Royal Bun, Messy High Bun and so on. I think you get the picture. I have been doing high buns for some time now. The difference with these buns are that they are much higher and fuller than my normal high bun. At first, I thought that I didn't have enough hair for this style. However, I decided to go little out my comfort zone and give it a try anyway. Whenever I try something new, I like to try it on strangers like when I'm running errands or something like that. Just to see how it holds up and if I really like it after a few hours. Also, I like to see if I get any strange looks or compliments because usually that determines the reactions I might get at my work place.
It was a pretty fast updo. I did have a little trouble at first because I had to get used to having taller hair than normal. I hit my bun getting in and out of the car a few times. It didn't hurt but it was really funny!
I think that the high bun is really great for keeping your ends protected and getting a few more days out of your twist-outs. I definitely recommend using a nylon ponytail holder without any metal on it and not pulling you hair too tightly into the ponytail. Dress it up and add the accessory of your choosing. I loved it and I will surely be trying this style again.
Have you tried the Top Knot? What was your experience?
