Whatever you want to call it - the hun, the half-bun, the half-up topknot, take your pick – it's undoubtedly the hairstyle dominating the style set right now.
In June we reported that Pinterest searches for the half-bun are up 92 per cent, and stars like Sienna Miller have clearly been busy pinning. Miller wore hers to exit stage left from London’s Apollo Theatre, where she stars in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, while Lorde’s VMAs half-up, half-down topknot proved the look works equally well for red carpet occasions.
Both Miller and Lorde wore theirs with loose, lightly tousled waves, their hair lending a bohemian vibe to their starkly different outfits – Miller in her off-duty trackpants and navy crew-neck and Lorde in her gauzy violet Monique Lhuillier gown.
The half-bun style is a cinch to pull off – read our simple styling how-to here.
