Buns & Braids

Do buns or braids ever go out of style? They're certainly hot for Spring/Summer, especially when the temperature starts to rise and all you want to do is Get. Your. Hair.outofyourface. When I was a dancer I almost always had to wear my hair in either a bun with a hair net with 15 or so bobby pins poking into my scalp (ouch, Mom!) or french braids that I learned how to do on my own (to eliminate the ouch factor caused by said mom) when I was 8. I continue to put my hair up in a bun (sans bobby pins) on lazy days. Not an elegant updo but more like a messy, takes-me-three-seconds-to-do-up-do but I haven't expanded my braid repertoire beyond one or two plain-Jane french braids and/or a side braid. Here is my collection of photos that have me inspired to try something new. Are you inspired, too?

I love the thickness of her braid

Classic. Elegant.

Bad hair day be gone!

Milkmaid braids

Alexandra Richards rocks the pigtails

Just enough twist

And of course Miss SJP.

Carrie loves her buns. Just being cheeky ; ) Love her shoes in the last pic! Who is counting down the days until SATC 2 comes out? Can't wait!
