MMM {beautiful} Bored of a bun

When I worked in an office, getting dressed was a relatively stress-free experience as I had childcare and half an hour to myself before dashing off for the train.

Now amidst the chaotic ‘routine’ that is my mornings, I am somehow expected to get myself and the kids dressed and ready for the day as well.

I’ve developed a non-office / freelance / school run uniform of trousers, jumper and trainers and for time and ease of execution, my hair is thrown on top of my head every morning in a bun. But I am SO BORED OF A BUN.

If, like me, you’re stuck in a hair rut but don’t have time to try anything fancy, here’s some pictures I’ve been pinning. Hair-spiration if you like – and don’t just look at the lengths of the models hair because these looks can be adapted for every hair type.

 

OK so it's a bun, but this is sleeker than your average. Side part hair, scrape both sides back and twist into a small bun, securing with pins.

This one is perfect for me on a particularly messy morning. Simply do two plaits from the front on both sides and secure both at the back. Doesn't matter if it's not perfect, that's the point.

Scrape hair into a low ponytail with your fingers so it's not too 'done.' As you're tying the bobble around, form a bun but then pull some of the hair out to form the ponytail.

Total bad-hair / grown-out roots distraction - use a turban-style hairband and either leave hair loose or tie into a messy low pony tail.

It's so time to rock a beanie. Plus, the easiest way to get out of the house quickly. This season make it all about a knitted beanie with an pom pom. Zara have some great versions in really wearable colours.
