Covering fashion, photography, travel, and issues, Tegan brings the true art of lifestyle alive through her thoughtful stories, fashion information, and photos.  In addition to her print publication, Ms. Brideson brings her love of design, styling, and art into the spotlight and delivers thoughtful and imaginative information related to living a full and beautiful life.

Day to Evening Styles : Buns and Braids

Have you ver struggled with creating a bun or (more properly known as) chignon?  Do you ever wish you could get a voluminous, thick-looking updo with fine hair?  We think we have your answer to creating a look that is appropriate for work, perfect for evening, spot-on for casual (but put-together) weekends, and just plain grocery store awesome.  Amazingly enough, this look is simply created using a tube sock (preferably clean).  When we found this awesome website that has cool clothes, a pretty funny blog, and some useful  info about the goings-on around town (if you’re in New York, that is), we were instantly hooked.  The thing that hooked us was this blog post about creating fullness out of almost nothingness.  Check out the step-by-step process of making some great buns (hun) then let us know how it all turned out!!  (Photos are appreciated at info@bungalow8omaha.com)  Opening Ceremony’s website is http://www.openingceremony.us/entry.asp?pid=4149.

Braids, braids, braids… they are everywhere this season.  Braids are an easy creation that can go from elbow grease to evening finesse just like that.  Also, after you pull out your plaits, you have awesome texture and wave.  Braid a ponytail and wrap into a slicked-back ballerina bun, fishtail for a boho-chic look, or  french braid a “waterfall” for something different while keeping your hair down.  (Waterfall tutorial on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FElGSmYPjWM)  Braids are great for something easy, a last minute day-to-evening, and to simply keep your bangs out of your eyes (think braid headband).  Google “braids” and “hair plaits” and see the myriad of possibilities for this simple, yet elegant, style.

Yours in style,

BUNGALOW/8 Hairdressing
