The New It-Girl Trend Is The "Hun," The Half-Bun Sweeping Social Media
Lil Wayne popularized the saying "long hair, don't care," but he had us living a lie.
In reality, long hair is very much something you're forced to think about every single morning.
Each day, you wake to find a veritable eagle's nest residing on top of your head. After showering -- which involves a lot of conditioner -- it's up to you to figure out a style that's not a ponytail.
Enter the half-bun, lovingly nicknamed the "hun." The 'do, which you might know best as the one your mom used to keep hair out of your infant face, is back in full force for adult women.
Although tightly-wound offices may not allow the precarious knot of hair on top of your head, the style is an excellent way to showcase your painstaking ombre or bayalage.
We always enjoy seeing a vintage look updated for the current season, so it's important to note the ways 2015's hun is different from those your hippie aunt loves to wear.
Aside from its social media dominance, the modern half-bun comes in bright hues and intricate braids. It's relaxed, but never lazy.
