Since I'm doing my own hair for my friend's wedding on Saturday, I've been practicing this bun all week. I'm usually helpless when it comes to anything beyond the realm of ponytail, but this look is relatively easy. I started with a standard bun, adding bobby pins at every turn, and this Youtube tutorial proved very helpful for the rest. The loose, messy styling allows room for error. And, it wasn't nearly as difficult as photographing the back of my head in a mirror. I'm feeling pretty good about the look. It's like a cross between a ballerina and Princess Leia, which is what I aspire to in all areas of my life.
