Messy Bun ala YSL

Image credit: PARISIENNE

Over the weekend I tried this wonderful tutorial posted by Joanna Goddard on PARISIENNE, the Yves Saint Laurent blog, on how to get a messy bun much like the girls of Paris wear. I was so excited to find that I could actually do it! I've always kept my hair very, very short until two years ago when I decided to try growing it out - I haven't had a hair appointment since, if you can believe it! My hair grows very fast so now it's quite long enough to try out different up-dos.

Here was my finished result:

I felt very chic and Parisian! If you want to try the tutorial yourself you can follow the pictures above or read a step-by-step guide here at PARISIENNE. If you do try it out I'd love to see your results - feel free to share your own Parisian messy bun up-do photos on our Facebook page!

Also, if you didn't happen to see our updates on Twitter and Facebook, our guest post for the Talbots blog Red Chair Confessions was posted last week! You can read all about our festive and fashionable holiday revelries over here. Enjoy!

I'm going to try that tutorial. Thanks for sharing! I saw that picture of you on your blog and thought you looked so pretty. :)

Oh my gosh this is the perfect tutorial! I'm totally going to try it although I don't know how long I'll be able to wear it up as my hair is real long and thick and I end up getting headaches if it's up too high or tight. This seems like it might be more comfortable though because it's so loose.

You look absolutely adorable! Love the photo!

tres chic! I just tried it, haha! My bun isn't as big as the model's though, it looks kind of wimpy. Maybe I should tease it first! Thanks for sharing!
