Side Bun Hair Style
A while ago, I fell in love with the Jenny Packham hair piece. However, after my hair and make up trial with the absolutely fabulous stylist Evan Huang, I’m now undecided. I think the bejewelled piece may be a bit OTT and my white dress is already so intricate and beautiful. I dont want too many things fitting for attention.
So I’ve been looking at the latest celebrity gossip and I saw this lovely photo of Peaches Geldoff at Cannes with a side bun. Coincidentally, my stylist is actually at Cannes doing some celebrity make up (how lucky am I?)
I love the delicate flower on the side, its a fresh take on the single flower that is favoured by so many brides.
Then I went crazy and started looking at other side buns. I could keep it simple like Selena Gomez:
Im still undecided – any suggestion welcome!
and for those other brides who are also thinking of a side bun, I found some instructions how to make your own side bun:
Step 1: “First, work some smoothing serum through to the ends of your hair. If you have thinner hair than blow-dry with a big, round brush. Or if you have thicker hair, as many Latinas do, then just let your hair dry naturally and then go through it with a big barrel curling iron—smoothing and curling all of your strands.”
Step 2: “Then do some light teasing on your crown then smooth all of your hair into a very loose side ponytail using a non-metal elastic.”
Step 3: “Using a few very large hairpins—not bobby pins, drag the ends of your hair and tuck it into the ponytail. You never want any pin to show. It’s important to use the pin to secure your hair and not your fingers to make sure that the look is very natural.”
Step 4: “Pull a few tendrils down on either side to soften your face.”
Step 5: “Sweep your bangs to the side with the bun.”
Step 6: “It’s also a nice touch to put a flower by your ear.”
Step 7: “Finally, spray evenly with a medium-hold, aerosol hairspray. This style has lots of movement, so don’t use anything to stiff or sticky or you’ll lose the soft, natural look of the style.”
