The Two Minute Bun: Hair Tutorial

Two Minute Bun Hair Tutorial // thepapermama.com

A couple weeks ago Vidal Sassoon Pro Series asked me to throw a hair party with a few of my friends, so I did. We had bloody marys, bacon, cinnamon rolls and prizes! It was so much fun. If you want to check out the photos from the party, look at the #FallHairspiration hashtag in Twitter and Instagram.

I was also asked me if I’d like to try out a new hairstyle and share it with my readers. Yes, of course I would like to do this. There’s this cute hair tutorial I’ve seen wandering around the interwebs and I’ve been wanting to try it out. It’s now my favorite fall hair style. I’ve been calling it The Two Minute Bun. Here’s how it’s done:

Two Minute Bun Hair Tutorial // thepapermama.com

- First, split your hair into three sections. One on each side of your face, and the third in the back.

- Take that back hair section and tie it into a low ponytail.

- Make a bun out of the ponytail you just made. Optional: I have very fine hair and to give my bun more size I made it into a sock bun. You can do the sock bun or just a normal bun. Pin if needed.

- Grab one of the side sections of of loose hair. Wrap it over and around the bun (as seen in the photo). Pin as needed. Repeat this step with the other section of loose hair.

- Check for any loose hair sticking out and pin. Add some hairspray for extra hold and you’re done!

You can check the photos above, or check out this video below for extra help. It’s really simple.

Let me know if you give this a try! I think it’s now my go-to easy hair-do. Also, Vidal Sassoon Pro Series has a Pinterest Pin-it-to-win-it Sweepstakes, where you have a chance to win a $1,000 Target gift card! Super awesome. Good luck!

3-times-a-week-style: Austin

Texas Style Council Prom Style // thepapermama.com

3-times-a-week-style: I gotta say… the most stylish I’ve been in MONTHS was while I was in Austin. Yes, hot/sweaty/104 degrees + humid Austin. It was pretty much 4 days straight of all the makeup and pretty clothes…. I was sweaty and stylin’. Ha! BUT, it’s pretty hard to NOT be inspired by all the pretty dressed ladies (and like 3 guys) at the Texas Style Council.

Also, I’ve realized I keep mentioning how HOT Austin was, but I want to also say how that city is awesome. That’s what I’ve been forgetting to mention. It’s full of good food and neat shopping. Especially the South Congress area. The next time I make it out to the city, I plan on going during a non-super hot time. I’m guessing winter would be great (it would be like summer in Portland).

Even with the heat, it was a good week for my ‘dress nice for at least 3 times a week‘ goal. You know… cause usually I prefer to wear yoga pants 95% of thee time. Do you have any similar goals?
