Beauty Trend to Watch: The Side Bun

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We've already seen a bunch of them on the runway this season, so you can rest assured they'll be appearing on a non-model near you this spring. We're talking about the side bun, which seems to be coming in every which way shape and style this Fashion Week. There it was, curly and frizzy at Cynthia Rowley. Then over there, sleek and sophisticated at Costello Tagliapietra. Again at Rebecca Minkoff and Suno, casual and messy. We see the appeal: equally good for dressing up or down, sophisticated but more playful than a traditional bun. What do you think, worth a try this season?
