Brit Girls Like Alexa and Rosie HW Always Do This “Basic” Bun Hairstyle
While there’s plenty of room in all of our lives for cool hair accessories and trending ’90s hairstyles, sometimes basic is best when it comes to hair. Case in point: a classic bun. Chic, simple and always stylish, it’s the go-to hairstyle of choice for celebs like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung whether they’re relaxing on holiday and dressing up for the red carpet. Basically, it’s the hairstyle that works for every occasion.
However, while it might look effortlessly cool, there is some art to creating a basic bun on your own hair. All too often I’ve attempted to scrape my strands into a carefully disheveled updo only to find that the final effect is more ready for a face wash than off-duty model.
Thankfully, Rosie HW—the queen of the bun—revealed her secrets for creating the perfect one over on Rose Inc. this week. Sleek, shiny and (most importantly) simple, I can confirm that these tips will have you rocking a cool girl bun in no time. In fact, Rosie was even kind enough to fill us in on her favourite hair styling products too.
