    The High Hair Bun; The Newest Celebrity Hairstyle Trend for Shoulder Length Hair

    The big high hair bun is all the rage from London to L.A. This high profile style is seen on runways and celebrities from Gwen Stefani to Selma Hayak. What do their hairstylist’s know that you need to know? It’s easy and glamorous. And aren’t we all looking for that perfect combination of ease and glamour?

    Celebrity hair colorist and Paul Mitchell Editorial Director Lucie Doughty, has created an easy, accessible kit for women to achieve this look. It’s called the Big Bun Trend Essentials Kit. While most of us will not be walking the red carpet any time soon. We can revel in the idea while wearing the big high hair bun for a night out, a full day of shopping, or a sophisticated work look.


    The Big Bun has a large return on investment . . . style wise, that is. It’s high impact and if you can get your hair in a ponytail with a little length to spare you can revel in the riches of this international sophisticated, street trend.


    This look is perfect for anyone with shoulder length hair. If your hair is layered that’s okay, the Big Bun will still work for your hair. Lucie Doughty, co-founder of Straight Pin Studio shares the more than easy “How-To” achieve this coveted look.

    High Bun How To

    Prep wet hair with Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydromist Blow out Spray to reduce frizz. Dry hair thoroughly. And then pull hair into a high ponytail, at the crown, and secure with a hair band. Pull the ponytail through the middle of the Big Bun and pin into place around the edges. Lightly backcomb your ponytail using the Paul Mitchell teasing brush and spread hair evenly to cover the entire bun. Tuck ends and pin to secure. To contain fly-aways, lightly spray hair with Paul Mitchell’s Hold Me Tight hairspray. If your hair is layered be sure to incorporate the layers into the hair by lightly spraying and brushing so they shape to the head.

    The Big Bun Trend Essentials Kit comes packaged in a patent-vinyl bag that can also be used as a makeup bag, for travel or the gym. Made of good quality nylon mesh The Big Bun can be used over and over and comes with 10 bobby pins and 2 hair bands.
