DIY friday….Sweetheart bun!

Hey gorgeous! You ready for a head-turner?

This beautiful vintage hair look can be seen on Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and more recently, Sarah Jessica Parker. It is very classy and can be very polished, or soften with lots of texture and curls around the  face, as seen on HTHG. The  Sweetheart bun is so very easy to do on medium to long hair.

This style was originally inspired to me by Betty Draper of Mad Men. HTHG’s version is slightly more casual.






You will begin with a ponytail on top of the head. Secure tightly in a folded over pony, so that you have at least a couple inches of tail in the back.




Spread out the folded pony, pulling it gently out from both sides, and slightly forward toward the front to fan it out.






Then, take the tail part from the back, and split it in two, wrapping both peices around the base of the ponytail in opposite directions. Pin the ends to secure.






Now, take both sides of your bun, and gently pin them against your head.

If you have bangs, you can twist them and pin them back, or leave them down.

Please send me your pictures of post them on my Facebook page to share! XO!

If you like this pretty look retro look, don’t forget to share it on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook.
