In the past, my lazy go-to hair style consisted of me attempting to throw my hair up in a topknot, but I never quite got that one down. No matter how many hair tutorials I followed online, my bun always looked too perfect or like a nest of some sort sitting on top of my head. No bueno.

Recently, I’ve been rocking the half bun up do – an alternative to the topknot and a look I pretty much wore every day in middle school. The best part is there’s no weird sock bun trick necessary for you to create this look on your own. What do we think? Yes, no, maybe so?

Since the summer heat is upon us, these are few of my favorite quick and easy “throw your hair back” looks.
