Jessica Alba and Kate Bosworth rock the donut bun
Just last fall, top knots became the rage in the high-fashion scene. But another hairstyle is already stealing the spotlight: the donut bun. Unlike traditional buns, which are created when you wrap hair around the ponytail, this perfectly coiled look is best achieved with the help of inexpensive foam pieces, which are shaped like-you guessed it-a donut.
Here's how it works:
- Pull hair back into a ponytail and secure it with a rubber band.
- Pull the pony through foam donut hole until it comfortably sits on the head. You can secure it with bobby pins if it feels loose.
- Separate hair into 4 equal sections, and spread them across the donut, until it's completely covered. Wrap and tuck the ends under the foam and pin them down.
- Spray with hairspray to tame flyaways and set your style.
