Trend report: Bun cuffs are the latest must-have hair accessory

There’s a hot new hair accessory trending and it’s changing the game for the beloved top-knot this season. The beauty world is abuzz and everyone is crushing hard on the bun cuff. Showing up on the heads of cool girls everywhere from runways to social media, the bun cuff is a foolproof trick to elevate your messy top-knot in a matter of seconds. Not to mention, it’s the perfect trend for disguising second and third-day hair, making it lazy girl approved!

The must-have accessory’s convertible design is made up off a cuff and a U-shaped pin that secures your strands, making the bun cuff just as functional as it is beautiful. You can use it to hold a top knot or half-bun in place on your head, or you can wear it as arm candy, which is way chicer alternative than rocking that grungy old black elastic around your wrist. Let’s face it - the black elastic is ruining your look, and there's just no way can you go without having the option of throwing your hair up at all times.

From embellished art deco–inspired cuffs to feminine petite florals and modern metals, there's a bun cuff to compliment every piece of clothing in your wardrobe. But our favorites by far are the sleek metallic versions in bronzes, rose golds and silvers. Refined and stylish, these high-shine cuffs are the perfect answer to amping-up an otherwise ordinary hair look.

It’s so easy to dress up your tresses with this one-and-done cuff. Just flip your head over, and using your fingers, pull all of your hair haphazardly into a bun at the crown of your head. Don’t worry about bumps and loose strands here, this style looks better messier it is! Then, slide the cuff over the base of the bun and slip the pin into place. Finish your look with a few spritzes of a medium-hold hairspray, like Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Hair Spray, and voila, top-knot magic!

Whether your go-to style is a half-bun (hun) or a full top-knot, bun cuffs are a styling obsession that is all kinds of gorgeous. This season’s It-girls are rarely ever seen without one on their top-knots, so grab your favorite hair spray from the Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME line and give your lovely locks some special attention with a must-have accessory that’s majorly on-trend for fall. A bun-cuffed ‘do is the perfect look to take you well into winter 2016.
