I have to say that I am a huge fan of a high impact bun (especially as I wore a similar hairstyle for my own wedding not long ago)! This hair trend featured here on singer/actress Hilary Duff made a great style statement on her wedding day as well as other brides pictured above. Hilary’s hair style seems to be more of a top “knot” bun that has been pre-teased, then neatly combed, and pinned (that’s at least what it looks like from the picture).
Here I am on my wedding day (almost 4 years ago) with a somewhat similar hair style. My updo was created with an initial high ponytail with pinned curls to create the bun.

A couple of the bun hair styles (in picture collage above) seem to be sporting a more simple version of the bun by using what some call a “sock bun”. It’s recently become quite popular as its a quick and easy bun to achieve on your own and does a great job of staying more secure. Here’s what the “sock buns” actually look like (the one on the left is a pre-made sock bun from H&M and the one on the right was homemade by cutting and rolling a thick black sock – which is why they call it a “sock bun”:
No matter which way you pull off the high top bun, whether it be with straight up ponytail and bobby pins or if you go the quicker route by using a sock bun, it is a classic yet current hair style that is elegant and great for Brides and or Bridesmaids!
