Doughnut!

Hey!

Now I wish this post was about actual doughnuts (pass me a Krispy Kreme anyday, luv) but it's actually about the hair craze :) Bit of a random blog post but after it featured on Rachel's blog I had to go out and get me one! They're so cool! I picked up mine for £4.60 in Boots in the light brown shade but I've seen similar ones in New Look :)
It's perfect for creating an up-do bun, you simply tie your hair into a ponytail, thread the hair through the 'doughnut' and pin it in place. Takes about a minute but it looks like it's taken much longer!

Here's my shot at it...
Not bad! Not a look I'd perhaps rock in the day as it's too 'made-up' for my liking, but perfect for evening occasions when you cba to curl your hair :)

Have you tried the doughnut? Thinking about it?

Love,

Sophia

  4. I saw Rachel's post too - both of your hair looks lovely! I think my face is too long to suit up-dos like this :(
    Also, spotted a brown one of these in Primark for a quid today! xxx

  5. Finally! This sounds so stupid, but living in Liverpool, all the girls go out with their hair like this, day and night, and I just couldn't understand how they turned a natty looking donut into a glossy perfect bun. Your explanation has solved my dilemmas! Now, if only my hair would grow so I can try this look myself - I love it :)

    @Steph Haha that's so funny! Now you know! It works with quite short hair as well, mine's too long really :(
