Brigitte Bardot Inspired Updo

I have fine hair, but I love big updos. The higher the hair, you know? There’s no amount of teasing (although, she’s a friend of mine) that can achieve that 60s Brigitte Bardot hair, so I rely on little tricks to get the look I desire. You’ve probably seen the donut bun used to make the perfect ballerina bun, but they’re also very useful in other hairstyles — like this perfectly undone, Brigitte Bardot inspired updo. It’s super easy to recreate on your own, and a step up from the typical messy bun. Want to learn how to do this retro 60s hairstyle? Watch the video below for a step by step demonstration, and then try it on your own. Tip: try it while you watch, and pause as you go. That’s how I like to do it!

    I love how chick this looks! I have quite curly hair, but I will definitly give this a go.

      Curly hair might even let you skip a few of the steps;)

    This up-do is ADORABLE. I don’t know how I haven’t heard of that donut bun thing, but now I’m so intrigued.

      The donut bun makes updos so much easier!
