My Favorite Summer Trend: The Half-Bun






There are plenty of summer trends this year that I am into, but there's definitely only one that I can call my favorite: the half bun!

As a small child, I rocked the half ponytail all the time. It was cute and simple, and allowed lots of room for my butterfly clips. Now, the half bun allows me to keep my hair out of my face while still showing off the length of my hair that I have worked so hard for. It also is one of the first styles in which I can wear my hair naturally (without curling or straightening it) which is super important to me lately since I'm trying to restore some health to my hair after many years of damage. However, if I want to dress it up a little I still can by straightening my hair and making the look super sleek!

I could honestly talk about this hairstyle forever but instead I'll just post some pictures and let you soak in its awesomeness. I dare you all to wear your hair in a half bun tomorrow and enjoy how glorious you feel.

  1. Liz if I could pull this off I would. I pretty much live in a sloppy bun. It's not low and it's not high. If it was a person it'd be a lazy teenager saying "I don't want Toooooo!".

    1. Which is exactly why I love this!! It also helps that I work in a lab instead of a formal office so basically no one cares what my hair looks like haha

  5. It looks so great! I have yet to try the half-bun, but I love seeing it on other people. I would probably try this on a day that my hair just won't cooperate.
