Bows and Bun: Updating the everyday bun

With the unpredictable weather in the Philippines and my thoroughly lush (read: way too thick) hair, I would inevitably reach for my hair elastic even before I leave home for work.  It used to be a ponytail all the time until I learned how to do a bun with just two elastics. From then, a bun was a default for office days especially since it looks more professional than a ponytail (IMO).

Lately, I got quite bored with it and decided to give it a little lift. In true vintage, ladylike style, why not add bows?

The result…

Ta-da! I tied my the top half of my hair in a half ponytail with this pretty bow (attached to a black elastic, so convenient!) then tied the lower half into a bun with a plain elastic. It’s so easy to do and I didn’t have to spend a lot to update my look.

This pretty bow comes in twos in a set at the Ladies’ Accessories section of SM Department Store for P150 (roughly $4).  Lovely, ‘no? I’m an amateur when it comes to fashion but for some reason, this hair tie gives off a Ferragamo-ish vibe.

Like it? 🙂 Bun updated!
