Top Bun Hair Tutorial

Hi ladies! It's been so long since I've blogged. Found myself out of the NYC again lol. My family and I went to LA for just a few days to help my brother move in to his new apartment. We did a whole makeover! Top to bottom clean, bought new furniture, revamped some of his old things, did lots of laundry, (did I mention clean? lol) and decorated. We could've easily been on a home makeover show. It was so fun but so exhausting! He loves it now though, and I do too :) I just got back last night, and was so eager to film and edit a new video for you! I've been wanting to show you how I get this elegant top knot bun which I've been sporting around town.. ;) This hairstyle is so easy to create, you could do it with your eyes closed, but looks really pretty and put together. It's been my go-to hairstyle between washes, and before events where I don't have a lot of time to get ready, I always rely on this. So of course I want to share it with you! 


Products Used:
- Paddle brush (conair)
- Smoothing brush (creative brushes small bristles styling brush) 
- Hair ties
- L'Oreal Elnett hairspray 
- Mesh donut (they're usually very cheap, I got mine for $1!)
- Bobby pins

  7. So cute and elegant, especially for those days when you don't feel like washing you hair but want to look stylish.

    You should do a tutorial on Nina Dobrev (hair and make up).

  12. Neatly done. Looks good. Also thank you for your product recommendations. I actually bought the following you have suggested: those orange foam long rollers. I did it this morning and looked great. I have long hair almost to my waist and it made lol shorter which is nice without having to cut it.
    Also the formulas physician blush which you recommended, is such a pretty pink. And the ysl peche passion is gorgeous. And pink in the afternoon by Revlon. So thank you again
    Good job

  22. I found this tutorial yesterday and decided to give it a try since I was having a bad hair day. I put on my Jessica Simpson bangs, grabbed a sock, and tried this bun. I'm not usually very talented at doing my hair and this was easy enough for me to do. I went out not even being sure it was going to hold. Not only did it hold, but later on in the afternoon, I went shopping for some rain boots and a girl came up to me and told me she liked my hair!! That never happened before! I was so happy! :D Thank you Annie! Although I just fell upon your blog yesterday, I am already hooked and will definitely be sticking around. :) Keep being your beautiful self. You are truly an inspiration. Thank you.

  23. The two main brands of hair rollers are Conair (Babyliss) and Remington. These hair rollers are for those women who are styling their hair with a brush and a blow dryer with difficulty.best hair roller
