Buns Buns Buns!
Chignon buns with scarves, sock buns with cardigans. A perfect duo for the frosty winter weather we’re loving here. Not only are buns all the rage for the past TWO seasons, they’re also easy to style and will cause death-stares of jealousy among frien-emies and friends alike. This entry is entirely dedicated to lazy hairstyles for girls who just can’t handle the pressure of intricate and troublesome hairstyles.

Now, what exactly is a Chignon in the first place? According to thefreedictionary.com a Chignon is “an arrangement of long hair in a roll or knot at the back of the head”. Let’s get this straight, it’s a bun rolled into place. I’m sorry, I was just imagining all of the extra sleep I’d get instead of fighting with my curling iron and straightener in the morning. I know you’re probably asking yourself; ‘But how do I style a Chignon, Emily?’. Well I’ll tell you my lazy beauties, I linked a few websites below to get you started. You can thank me later 😉

You’re going to need to practice this like twice and you’ll have it down pat. It takes a bit of coordination and tucking in those weird short random hair pieces, but nothing too difficult. A sock bun is a bun made to be big, fat, and voluptuous with the help of a little hairspray and a hair donut.

Hair donuts can be made from a few things; personally,I’m cheap. Plain and simple. I use a cut sock (How to make a sock bun donut) although it works just as well and it costs next to nothing, I advise you to choose a sock relatively the same color as your hair so that it camoflauges. Store bought donuts are also made of mesh and sponge. It’s your personal preference that makes the difference, I honestly have no preference.
So back to the bun, It’s perfectly easy and quick. You put your hair into a high pony tail, slip your hair through the hole in the donut, then you simply roll your hair into the donut and secure to the top of your head. Simple, but you’ll enjoy some lovely tutorials I found for you below.
