Top Knot

The bun reaches greater heights in a crown sitting knot.
Top Knot The bun reaches greater heights in a crown sitting knot.

Fast and easy, buns are often the style of choice during days when you run out of time to groom in the mornings, when you feel the need to balance a fussy outfit or when those ever dreadful bad hair days come knocking. Often sitting low on the nape and twisted into a undone chignon, the bun rarely gets an update during our everyday routine.

Adding a fun twist to the staple style, wearing your bun up high instead of down low gives you another casual-chic option that is as equally simple to make. And if that hasn't already convinced you, an even better plus is that a high bun adds at least a good three inches to your height, sans sole piercing shoes.
