Red Carpet Hair: Celebrities Love Buns by Michela Marra
Dear Pretty Birds,
By now it’s clear that celebrities prefer updos for special occasions. From crown braids to pony tails, lately, celebrities have been having fun experimenting with the trendiest hair styles or choosing simple hairdos but enhancing their look with some glamorous accessories.
However, the undisputed star of the most recent red carpets has been the chignon, not only in its classic, elegant version. It is always appropriate and easy to create: just gather hair up in a knot at the nape and tie it with an elastic or a tuft of hair. The thing about buns is that the variations are endless, making it perfect for all occasions. That’s why it never looks the same and has a different aspect depending on the head that flaunts it!
There’s also the romantic, soft, casual version, perhaps worn on the side, or the more elegant, low bun, very popular among celebs. Finally, there’s the extra, high bun which saw its moment of glory at the Cannes Film Festival and which we absolutely adore. This one calls for rigorous styling and lots of hairspray to fix and hold hair for the entire evening. If you want to try out this hairstyle that is perfect for any season, remember to use specific beauty products to get hydrated, shiny hair and a very strong hairspray to fix.
We’ve chosen some of the loveliest chignons spotted recently on the red carpet. Have a look at the gallery and be inspired by these diva looks!
