The gal bun has endless possibilities, and can be worked into any outfit.
What’s the ultimate winter hair goal we’re all trying to achieve? The cold has set in, and all we want is to look fantastic while bundled up in sweaters and shawls. What we need is an effortless style that keeps the hair off the face, but the neck warm and toasty.
This is precisely what the gal bun does. It’s a half up, half down, messy bun/ponytail, that manages to look chic while being super easy to achieve.
The gal bun has endless possibilities, and can be worked into any outfit. Show off your balayage or new year haircut, but still keep the hair off your face. It gives your hair the volume and height we all crave, and can look classy and cute at the same time.
For a casual day look, just pull together the hair on your crown, and use a rubber band to secure it. Either make it into a knot, or pull it out into a ponytail. Gigi Hadid has perfected the half up half down ponytail.
“Gigi looks so effortlessly cool because this style is can’t-be-bothered. She’s not trying to be prim or proper at all. There were no tools or tricks to create this. All you have to do is use your fingers to rake back your hair, and throw half of it in a high pony,” says Matt Fugate, a hairstylist at Sally Hershberger NY.
If you’re going for a fancier look, jazz it up with a jewelled clip, and you’re ready for a night out... Any way you look at it, this style is the ultimate winter hair do!
