Autumn hair: braided crown vs. romantic bun

Lift up your spirits during autumn with a hairstyle that is sure to transport you to the land of handsome princes and magnificent castles. Go for the braided crown if braids are your style, or the romantic bun for a touch of simple charm.

The braided crown

The hairstyle: There are two simple methods in which you can achieve this elegant hairstyle. Begin by braiding right at the hairline or first come up with a low braid which can then be circled around your head. One benefit of this style is that it helps frame the face in a sophisticated manner.

The style: With its roots in the Slavic countryside, the braided crown is a great choice if you have medium to long hair. Give it your own special touch with hair accessories.

What the editors say: In order to look and feel like a princess, there is no need for a precious crown. Just let your fingers weave the magic into your tresses and relish the admiring glances. Let a few strands of hair escape from the crown to give it that little bit of pizzazz.

The romantic bun

The hairstyle: Make a low or high bun by loosely brushing back all of your hair. Ensure that the bun does not look too rigid by letting a few tendrils of hair frame the face elegantly.

The style: Perfect for formal occasions like weddings, the romantic bun, also known as the chignon, is suitable for long hair as well as some lobs. People with round face shapes can use it to create the impression of a slimmer face.

What the editors say: This feminine style is a classic and pretty simple at that. Pep it up a bit with some trendy tweaks such as applying some gel on your hair for a wet look. For this, you will need gel or even hairspray such as Shower Shine by Tecni. Art from L'Oréal Professionnel. Get ready to take on the world with your stunning new look!
