Primp and Pretend Bun - Pride and Prejudice Style


So there is a naptime strike going on over here, and am in mourning. Seriously. I knew the day would come, but always thought Thing 1 would be at least in kindergarten by then... Nope. So this is my hairdo that I have perfected to take 2 minutes flat, so I can go intervene when a certain boy is painting the tub and toilet with my blush brush. True story.

I slapped on my Red Rose Headband (find the tutorial here), and pretended for a few seconds that I was at Pemberley, attending a fancy ball, instead of running around trying to keep 'feet on the floor' 'hands to himself' and 'bums on the barstool." ;) I know you all love the alliteration going on in abundance over here.


So here's the easy peasy process:

  1. Gorgeous! It really is amazing what a darling headband and a whimsical spirit can do to turn a simple bun into something of true beauty. Your tutorials are always so inspiring. I seriously think I have been taking more hair "risks" because of you, Robyn....

    1. You are too sweet. Your hair is so pretty in all of your pictures. You don't even need to embellish it at all. Is it naturally straight? Mine has a mind of its own, and takes forever to tame the waves, so that's why I've had to branch out with updos :)

  2. Super cute! I've briefly looked through your other posts and see we like the same movies! And I have always loved their hair! Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Anne of Green Gables... Great tutorials! I'll need to try some of these. Especially since I'm growing my hair out. And I think I need to get/make some cute headbands. Where do you get yours?

    1. Thanks Alexis! I'm a little obsessed with all of those movies and am always on the hunt for more! Do you have any other favorites? I just saw a cute one last week called From Time to Time with Maggie Smith.

      I usually make my headbands or just use ribbons. Since I don't have a daughter, I just wear them myself :)

      Thanks for the comment and for hosting a fun link party!

  3. New follower here! You make this all look so easy, but super cute hair tutorials like this are the reason that I end up spending an hour in front of the mirror and then leaving the house in a ponytail. My hair just vetoes the whole "pin in place" step! This looks so good though, I guess I'll give it a few more tries before I just chop it all off ;D

    1. Thanks Toni! Your hair looks like it's naturally soft, silky, and straight. Those are all things that I wished for when I was a teenager. Mine only does that if I spend an hour straightening it, so I had to come up with some fast updos instead.

      I have resorted to chopping all of my hair off before, but I cried every time... I wish I could pull of a pixie cut, but I think long hair is my security blanket.

      Thanks for visiting my blog and for the comment!
