Classic bun hairstyles are more popular than ever right now on both the red the carpet and the runway. There has also been a mini trend of buns combined with pompadours at the front.
The big question is: do bun styles work better with or without a pomp?
Same idea, different look
With a pomp, the bun is given a major update - well, it's more of a retro backtrack but, still... - and a whole new silhouette. There's just no doubt about the fact that this look is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd!
Think about it, if you saw someone rock up to a party with a regular bun or topknot, you probably wouldn't spend more than a few seconds noticing their hair. However, if someone turned up with a bun/pomp hybrid, they might just receive a little more attention.
That said, it does feel a bit like corrupting a classic. Ballerina buns are timeless and will remain a go-to style for a lot of women for, well, ever. With a pomp, it's just not the same, FACT.
All about the occasion
Maybe it all comes down to the occasion or event you need your bun hairstyle for. If it's a professional or formal thing, sticking to a classic bun might be your best option. On the other hand, if it's a party you're heading out to, the pomp could be a perfect fit.
It's all about what you want and what you feel comfortable wearing. But hey, it never hurts to try something new, right? Just keep Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray nearby and you can't go wrong.
