One in the Oven?

I had the same hairstyle for my entire secondary school education. A bun. As I got older and my hair grew longer, the bun got bigger and it gradually crept up from the nape of my neck until in 6th year it sat proudly atop my head. I abandoned the look in college and haven't sported a bun in years, but guess what...? The bun is back. Over the past few months I've spotted the odd bun on street style blogs and only recently Observer Woman warned us that it was time to abandon the ponytail in favour of the bun, but if we were ever in any doubt that the bun was making a comeback then Paris Fashion Week put paid to that. At Christian Lacroix hair was piled into neat, glossy buns, whilst over at Marithe + Francois Girbaud models sported dos very reminiscent of my own look circa 2000. Even the little hats at Yves Saint Laurent had been styled to resemble buns. Yes, it's time to invest in some good quality hair bobbins and a packet of kirby grips - the essential tools for creating a good bun.
