The “Fall-Back” Style For Every Hair Type

Hair & Quotes by Jason J Dougherty | Butterfly Studio Stylist

When Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 2nd, you might gain an extra hour of sleep, but you still won’t have time to rock a time-lengthy style. This simple chic knot is the perfect go-to when you can’t spend more than a few minutes on a polished look, but you’re still looking for a classic hairstyle with a twist.

FallBack Bun.

Textured, loose “ballerina during down-time” hairstyle to wear with 90’s Plaid, Office Chic, or Folk/Traditional inspired patterns.

WHAT: Dress up and add sophistication in a time-sensitive, low-maintenance way.

BEST FOR: Girls on the go – who don’t have a lot of time for a complex style, but still want to rock a trend. The Assistant – always concentrating on the boss, but needs to pull a sophisticated look together quickly. The college-girl – leaving for class last minute, or early in the am. The single ladies – when you want to look sexy but not too done for that first date.

The “Fallback” bun is an alternative to the classic bun because of its loose texture and effortlessness. The less prefect the better, which makes it great the working woman and full calendar girls.

TRY IT: Brush out the hair and apply a light oil such as Gold Lust by Orive to add moisture and shine, and help with styling ease. Bring hair back to create a low ponytail. Keep it loose on top to keep the texture. Now take sections and work through all of the hair, anchoring with bobby pins. For a more polished look or something different for another day, add some pomade to the hair to make it more sleek. Finish with a little hairspray like Oribe’s Superfine to seal the deal.
