Move Over, Messy Bun –  The “HUN” Is Here!


What the hell is the “Hun”, you ask? The next BIG hair trend, we say! To break it down for you, the Hun is simply a “half-bun”, that we’re pretty sure you must have sported already. Don’t believe us? Think back to all those times when you quickly scooped up a bunch of your messy hair and tied it into a tiny knot atop your head while letting the rest of your hair flow freely. Yup! That’s it. That’s the Hun, and it’s being adopted by celebs the world over like never before! It’s super easy to do, works for all hair lengths and makes one look just-so-chic in no time – which is just why it’s gotten everybody crushin’ over it. Here are 7 celebs giving you style inspiration to help you rock the Hun…

When Bollywood’s ace fashionista dons a new hairstyle, you know there is something in it for you to sit up and notice. Like everything else about her, Sonam has given the Hun too her a stamp of her own by neatly pushing back her hair, parting it and then tying it into a wavy ponytail, topped with a Hun.
