I adore hair buns.

Messy buns, low buns, curly buns, straight buns,…you get the point.

My fave is the high bun, like the one pictured above. The bigger, the better. To me, it embodies elegance, beauty, and femininity.

I scoured the internet and found these beautiful bun pics for your viewing pleasure:

    Love the bun photos. I loe the look of buns, but I haven’t experimented with them much myself. I like that they can look casual or very dramatic and stylish.

      As much as I love them, I haven’t experienced much, either.

      I do, however, want to try the high bun sometime soon. My only concern is my uneven hair lengths. It makes it difficult to keep everything properly tucked.
