Blog Event :: Show Me Your Buns!

I'm so excited that over 15 bloggers graciously sent me photos of their glorious, elegant locks! Don't they look lovely? First, here are Keiko and Collette, our original muses...





Now, let's get started! This is Kirstin of Crimson Rosella. Who's cuter -- her or the pup!? I can't decide...



Next up is Eboni Ife of The Fashionista Next Door. She says: "The bun is a go-to for me. This summer, I hope to master the sloppy top-knot. I am ashamed to say that I am pretty lazy when it comes to my hair. I'd like to cut it short one day. It will force me to stop neglecting my hair, but for now... how about a side bun with a twist?"



Here we have Madison of Fashion Tales! She says: "I'm a globe travelling fashionista who loves vintage, music, architecture, independent talent and so much more! Come over & check out my neck of the woods as I share bits of my life and style with you."



Below is Jessica of Enchanted Vintage Clothing. I love her dress! She says: "I wear my hair in a bun ALOT because my hair is actually super curly and a pain in the ASS to wear down, with all the wind and rain that we have here. The bangs are actually clip in.... Jessica Simpson ones, so handy for people who only want a temporary fringe (and it fools people every-time!) What can I say I'm a cheater!"



Now we have Yvonne of Fashion RECON. She made these hairsticks herself! So creative. She says: "The hairstick in my bun is the first one I ever made!" Great job, Yvonne.



Here is an awesome shot of Susie Bubble by Lee of Lee Oliveira! He says: "Recently I photographed Susie Bubble in Sydney, and she was wearing a bun." Cute!



I'd like to introduce you to Lala of Made to Travel. She says: "My bun is probably going to put blogger buns to shame, but this really is how my blogger bun translates in real life: typically a tad messy and I likey a high bun for sure. On my blog you'll find my dear love for the great internet, fashion, style, and ethical shopping."



Next is Casee Marie of The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower! She says: "I do my blogger bun YSL-style. Or, you know, I try. But I'm not very good at it." Well, I think she looks just darling!



Meet Britta of Forelsket. She says: "I'm a chimeric writer with a violet ukulele named Nikki Fierce! And I'm going after my dreams with hopes to inspire others to go after theirs!" Lovin' the positivity.



This is Fabienne of The House in the Clouds! She says: "I had about four people come to me at work today and tell me that they didn't recognize with my hair up. How funny! I realized that I never wear my hair up at work, only at home. I also never wear my hair up in a bun because I feel like I have a delicate scalp and by the day's end my scalp is sore. What a big baby!" I have since heard reports that her scalp is doing just fine.



Here we have Kate of Scathingly Brilliant. She is always wearing buns on her blog, so I'm sure this was no difficult task for her! Cute cute.



Next up is YvonnaLivianna of À Tout le Monde. She says: "I love buns, they are so easy and quick and can instantly turn an outfit from good to great! Especially with a red lip!" Lookin' fab.



This is Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps. Don't you love her outfit? A great tutu-like skirt to go with the bun! She says: "Buns up girlfriends."



Here is the beautiful Bryana with her bun -- and a great backdrop! She doesn't have a blog, but is an avid reader. Thanks Bryana!



This is fellow LA lady, Alexis of North on Harper. She says: "This is my effortless bun--- I wear it in place of a ponytail when I am running around doing errands. I guess I am convinced that bobby pins will do less damage than a hair elastic!"



Here we have the funny and fabulous Anika of By Anika! She says: "I am a self worth activist and budding designer. It took me forever to try to make a blogger bun for the lovely Stephanie. I am used to dealing with fuller buns, if you catch my drift. Does this qualify as a blogger bun? I`ve no idea. Was it worth the 45 mins of trying to get it right only to fail miserably? Absolutely. Along the way I learned that my husbond thinks making a bun is the same as making a tropical palm tree on top of my head, and I also got a lovely chance to fine tune my swearing, which is always nice." Yes, the effort was well worth it!



This is the gorgeous Joanna from Mrs. Bossa Does the Do! She says: "It's quite a messy updo - hope that's ok!" I think it looks fabulous.



Lastly, we have Heidi of Heidi Hastings! Check out how sleek and shiny her hair is. She says: "I love buns -and wear them all the time in the studio. It's elegant, low-key and simple. Buns never go out of style."



And finally, here I am in my bun! See yesterday's post for more photos. ♥

  1. ahhh If I had longer hair :P
    I usually did a messy bun (when my hair was longer), kinda like your bun.
    As I kid I did ballet and always wore this perfect pulled back ballerina bun, but now I realised that messy buns are way better!!!I look strange with all my hair pulled back!

  10. Yay for blogger buns!! Thank you for hosting this event and allowing me to participate!! I loved seeing everyone's buns! I really like the glossiness of Heidi's hair and I never knew you could buy clip-in bangs!! Too cool! I may have to try those as I am loathe to cut any into my mane!

  14. Steph, this looks ace! There are obviously quite a few hardcore bunners out there...all of which I am off to check out now. Thanks for featuring ALL of my photos - I must wear my hair like that more often. xx

  15. Hot ladies with nice buns, what's knot to like!

  16. Best. Post. Ever. My bun is such an embarrassment next to all the other fabulous ones, haha.

    I love (and am slightly jealous of) everyone's messy buns. I can never get the messy chic look, I think my hair is just too straight. It falls right out and down and it's rather miserable.

    But anyway, brilliant idea and thanks for inviting me to join in! Oh, and Anika is a riot. I love her.

  17. This is such an amazing post - love seeing everyone's buns! (gee, that sounds a bit dirty. But that's OK!)

    Everyone looks great. I've never been able to master the topknot. When I had longer hair it was doable, but always messy. Now that it's a tad shorter I just always wear it down. I wish I had been able to experiment and participate, but I probably saved everyone from some comic relief at my expense ;)

    Thanks for organizing this Steph - so wonderful!
