There is something very graceful, demure and elegant about Marion Cotillard and after seeing this huge bun which she did I decided I would attempt to recreate the look.
I like this bun because it can be made as big as possible or can be more restrained depending on what you want. It shows that you are proud to wear your hair and make a statement (yet there is a form of restrained elegance to this bun).
It can be made very glamorous or dressed down and is so simple to achieve. Simply open up the hair, like I always do anytime I want volume for my hair (see how I open up my hair in paragraph four of my fuller bun tutorial here) and pin the very ends of your hair in the centre of your head. Take bobby pins and apply them in a half moon, across the crown of your head to form the bun shape. Add some pearls voila.
I wore this bun to church and received quite a few compliments. I think it will show off the beauty of anyone’s hair and can be done on shorter or longer hair perhaps with some slight modifications. It will be fabulous to wear during this Christmas season.
Hope you enjoy my take on this look, some bloggers and I are working on some fabulous holiday hair looks for you all. Do stay tuned!!!

I hope you all feel the Magic that Christmas Eve brings.


PS. The New Year Perfection Hair Growth Challenge is drawing to a close, hope everyone has been sticking to the rules.


‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, – not even a mouse:
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there….
