Trend alert: bun cuff

Helsinki, 13 degrees

If life a joke then I’m waiting for the punch. You all about the beef but me, I’m bout the bun.

As the autumn days in Helsinki become shorter & chillier, I've started to think about fall accessories. Lately, I've been fascinated with bun cuffs. They are a combination of bangle bracelets and hair pins paired together. It's such an easy way to glam up any outfit, don't you think? According to Finnish magazine Iltalehti, it was originally hair stylist Jen Atkin that invented this chic hair accessory. Online magazine Fashionista has even called it "the hair accessory for non-hair-accessory people." I think the best feature of this hair accessory is its minimalistic nature & versatility, as it can also be used as a bracelet. Have a look here! Different variations of engraved bun cuffs have also been seen around this summer, but I've placed my order for the original one ($45) to Chloe + Isabel. Let's see how long it takes until it reaches me up in the North...can't wait!

Helsingissä, syyspäivien lyhentyessä & viilentyessä, olen alkanut jo miettimään syysasusteita. Viime aikoina olen ihastunut bun cuff -nutturahiuskoruihin. Ns. nutturaraudassa rannekoru yhdistyy hiuspinniin. Asusteen avulla on helppo muuttaa minkä vain perusnutturan juhlavammaksi, eikö vain? Iltalehden mukaan hiusstylisti Jen Atkin lanseerasi bun cuff -hiusasusteen yhteistyössä Chloe + Isabel -korubrändin kanssa. Fashionista -verkkojulkaisun mukaan tämä hiusasuste sopii jopa niille, jotka yleensä eivät välitä hiuskoruista. Mielestäni hiuskorun paras ominaisuus on sen minimalistinen ulkonäkö sekä monipuolisuus: korua voi nimittäin myös pitää rannekoruna! Näet sen rannekoruna tässä. Korusta on jo ehditty tehdä monenmoista variaatiota, mutta itse olen tilannut alkuperäisen korun (45 dollaria) Chloe + Isabel -verkkokaupasta. Katsotaan miten kauan sen toimituksessa menee...en malta odottaa!

Don't we all need some bling bling & sparkle in our hairdos during fall?

Eikö kaikkiin hiuksiin tarvita piristystä & kimallusta syksyn tullen?
