Red Noir: An Elegant Side-Swept Bun

Saturday, October 20, 2012



I don't really do halloween - but now that October is almost over and the fall season is in full gear, I wanted to turn up the drama with this elegant side-swept protective bun paired with my black fascinator and vampy red lips (MAC's Ruby Woo with Currant lip liner). I've had this particular bun style idea in my head for a long time and I've been wanting to perfect it so I could add it to my style diary. I was also recently inspired by Rihanna's look in Vogue's November issue, which prompted me to go for a slightly vampy look overall (inspiration photos posted on my tumblr page here). After experimenting with several variations of this bun, I finally got it to look how I imagined it :) This kind of style is great for formal events, and adding accessories like a feather fascinator or a jeweled hair clip give it even more visual interest.

  1. Nice! I might try this but I'll have to have somebody else handle the parts because I can't be bothered. But I like this look.

    1. Thanks chica!! I think this style would look lovely on you! But you know what? The parts definitely don't have to be perfect...I just finger parted in the general direction I wanted the hair to go :)

  2. Ok, I absolutely love this look. I will just have to figure out how to copy this look with my shorter hair. Really elegant and lots of drama.

    1. Jenn I absolutely think you have enough hair to do this! You may just have to stretch it a bit and do a couple more (than 3) flat twists going across to get a similar effect :)
