Buns or Braids?

A good hair day. Something that is so hard to achieve sometimes, isn’t it? To me, if my hair doesn’t look the way I want it to look, everything else is pointless – the makeup, the outift, everything! Nevertheless, it’s important to always have a backup plan for the bad hair days.

Recently, it has been quite easy for me to find new hair styles that would fit me during the hot weather thanks to Pinterest! Even though I prefer simple beachy waves during the summer, there are many other interesting and creative ideas to try out which you can find there.

One of my absolute faves are buns, which you can wear either low or pretty up high. It gives you a really sweet look that you can rock with every outfit and on every occasion. My second fav are messy braids (these are always a winner)! Both of these efortless hairstyles really help you out when it’s very hot outside and show off your face. If you don’t want them to look too simple, you can always add something that will be your signature look – for example, you could use a scarf or a bandana and put it over your bun for a more unique and creative look. You could do something similar with buns, too! It’s up to you – be creative and have fun!

What is your favorite? Buns, braids, or another hairstyle altogether?

    Buns are so classy to me. I love the way they show your facial features. They are one of my fav hairstyles! I always go on Pinterest to see what hairstyle I can incorporate into my hair styling regimen.

    I love buns! It is my go to hair style because I have two kids and letting hair get in the way is pretty much a no no. I think you would look great with both.

    I love buns and braids too! I also love to add some accessorises like bandanas to make my hair styles more classy and unusual!

    I prefer buns! It’s just so simple and it gets your hair out of the way. My hair is very temperamental so I love putting way up in a bun and going about my day!

    I love them both as I use them in different occasions. Buns save me many times though 😉

    If I still had my long hair, I’d totally do a bun because I suck at braids ( I still can’t do a decent french braid for the life of me). I love this messy bun you did, looks so good on you!Samantha

    Out of all the hairstyles I’ve tried, buns are definitely my favorite! They look good with anything and you can wear them high or low. Your hair is always beautiful!

    I absolutely love braids – they’re so pretty and they are also perfect for workouts as they look good but keep all your hair off your face! My hair isn’t quite long enough for a bun yet, but yours looks so good! X

    I’m totally with you! I wear my hair up a lot in Summer, not only because it keeps me cooler.. but I find you can really only wear your hair down a couple days before it starts looking blah. Putting it in buns or braids is a great way to get some variety

    I wish I could put my hair up in a top knot like yours! I have so much hair it’s really a chore to style my hair in an updo. Sometimes I’ll braid my hair when it’s really hot. It’s a great way to get perfect beach waves too!
    xo, Jo
