Neat Ombre Bun

 





Blazer: Primark £22.00
Top: Topshop £14.00
Earrings: Dorothy Perkins £4.00


I'm definitely a 'hair down-freshly washed' kinda girl, but my hair does style better on the second day.
I'm torn between it smelling great and looking a bit flat or it smelling just ok and looking uber textured.
So i've been working straight hair on Mondays, enrapture curls on Tuesdays and up buns on Wednesdays.
Those are the only days i'm at college, the rest of the week my hair is freshly washed and styled various ways Thursday through Sunday.

My hair is quite thick and so using a doughnut to create a bun would never really have been my first thought. A bit of back combing and I have usually managed to achieve the look I want. However, since my Ombre / Dipdye i've been wanting to show the colours at the ends and mid lengths  of my hair, but have struggled to master the bun and also the colour being on view. So i went to Claire's Accessories and bought a dark, big well structured doughnut. I'm really happy i've started using a doughnut but now I can never imagine not using one. 

What do you have your hair like during college or uni days?
Do you make a lot of effort or is it minimal?
Do you use a doughnut to create your bun?
Do you think I should do a video tutorial on this hair style?

  3. I never understood how to use a doughnut until a couple of days ago so I haven't tried it yet. I usually do my hair similar to his for school though, it's so simple and yet looks polished.
