Fashion Friday #17: High Bun Tutorial

I can't believe I've been doing Fashion Friday for 17 weeks!!  I feel old.  It kind of started as a test and just for fun, but then I kept doing it and here we are 17 weeks later.  Here's what I'm wearing this week:




Sweater: Target
Shirt: Forever 21
Jeans: B.P. Nordstrom (super sale!!)
Boots: Nine West Outlet
Headband: Whippy Cake
Mittens: Target

Here's a long quick little tutorial on how to do a cute high bun.  I hope you enjoy the awkwardness that is me doing my hair, arms above my head and all.  I'm also very fond of the still picture it chose to frame the video in.  I look normal, right?

Here are some pictures for some more inspiration:

we all want to look like her, right? (:


She put her own twist on the bun by having the top loose and wavy then the bun being a little more twisty and relaxed.  I like it!
My version with a flower, of course!

What do you think? Like it, love it, no for you? What are you wearing these days?

Love and Fashion Friday,

  2. ah you are so cute! Thanks for the tutorial! I have been failing at the high bun thing...Maybe my hair is too heavy? Or i am just bun challenged. Will attempt again since I need a cute easy way to do my hair...the side braid is getting old.

  6. To cute girl! Loving the fashion.

    Now buns I can do.. [I still have to try the single braid down the side]. I always wore my hair in a bun whenever in uniform so I have all kinds of styles. Love it! :)

  9. That looks like an outfit straight out of my winter wardrobe :) Minus the adorable Whippy Cake headband, I still haven't invested in one of those. You have the prettiest, most versatile hair ever!

  30. Such a cute bun tutorial! As a former dancer, I always focused on doing a tight "it's not going anywhere" bun with lots of pins and a hairnet so nothing could escape. Blech. Yours is super cute!!!
