The ‘Hun’ Hairstyle Is Here To Solve All Your Styling Woes

Consider it the new topknot

We all crave a hairstyle that can take us from dawn to dusk, desk to drinks, without demanding we drag our ghds to work. So it is with great pleasure that we present: the hun, aka the half-bun.

According to Pinterest, searches for the half-bun are up 92 per cent – and we have a feeling that figure is just going to keep on climbing. You’re probably familiar with the style, but possibly not the name – but what’s a hairstyle worth without a hashtag-friendly moniker these days? The beauty of the hun is that it works on virtually all hair lengths and types – channel Kate Mara and perch a cute hun atop your lob, or do as Kendall Jenner does and add one to wavy long hair.

The hun can look pretty or completely punk – it’s all in how you style it. Wear slightly lower on the head with loose waves and a few soft, face-framing layers for an elegant effect, or pile up right on the crown for a bit of fun factor. 

Fine hair types might like to liberally spritz hair with a texturizing spray first to ensure their hun doesn’t hang limp: try Oribe Dry Texturising Spray or even a few blasts of Batiste dry shampoo.
