A lifesaver when it’s literally too hot to function.
There aren’t enough praises to be sung about the knotted bun, especially during hot, humid weather. This simple yet chic hairstyle is a quintessential summer staple, and is one of those quick looks that always seems appropriate, no matter the occasion—making it the perfect day-to-night look.
A knotted bun hairstyle is also a baby-step easier than its more diva-ish cousin, the top knot. The latter, though fashionable, may look and feel tighter and more uncomfortable, particularly for those who don’t necessarily want that much of a facelift or are sensitive to scalp tension. Knotted buns on the other hand, are slightly looser, therefore making it the lazy-sexy updo of choice for brunches, dancefloor throwdowns, hangovers and general life-living. Which, as you can see, are just, like, all the most relevant boxes ever.
