Peek-A-Boo + Donut Bun Hair Tutorial

When it comes to styling LBDs/little black dresses, it’s important to pay attention to the design. My little black dress is quite simple. No embellishments, no fancy fabric manipulation. There’s just a simple cut-out in front and a few lace panels.

Normally, I try to liven up my LBD by accessorizing with a statement necklace. But because there’s a cut-out on the chest area of this dress , a necklace would only cover it up or take attention away from it. So instead, I opted for a pair of statement earrings and color coordinated it with my clutch. Sometimes, all it takes is a little splash of color.

With a skirt like this, I just HAD to twirl.

Whenever I wear statement earrings, I almost always put my hair up or to one side so that I can better show my earrings off. Since this is a simple LBD, I went for a sophisticated donut bun. I know a lot of you have been asking for a tutorial so here it is! Finally! This is a slightly different donut bun using Pinkbox accessories but I’m sure you’ll like it as well.

So first, tie your hair up in a ponytail. I’m using my Goody double wear elastic in silver.

Insert the Pinkbox donut bun like this.

Cover the Pinkbox donut bun with your hair like this. So basically, it’s like wrapping the donut bun.

Grab another elastic and tie your hair to secure your covered bun. This time I’m using an elastic from Pinkbox.

 

Gather the hair that’s left, twist it and wrap it around and under your bun to cover the second elastic.

Secure the end of the hair that you twisted with a pin and that’s it! You have your donut bun!

    Hi! I found an LBD that is quite similar to yours, minus the cut-out in front and lace panels (it’s a halter dress na close sa neck area). How can I spice up the outfit? Hindi ba OA pag both may necklace and earrings? Thanks!

      If the necklace is attention grabbing na, don’t wear the earrings. :) It might look too busy. :)

    Those are some killer shoes, Camille! If I wear super high heels like that I always tend to slouch and I end up looking like the hunchback of Notre Dame :/ So I envy girls who can walk straight wearing those death-on-a-stick they call shoes haha.. oh and I love the hair bun tutorial :D

    That is one adorably cute LBD. :) …And then I see the hypodermic needle like stilettos.

    Kidding aside, wearing your hair in that bun and in that LBD, reminds me so much of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

    It’s kinda weird that I rarely see people use Purple as their palette for their accesories on any dominantly Black outfit. And based on your example, I have to say people should pair them up more often! :D Looking great! They’re perfect alternatives to the go-to Black + Red combo :3 And finally, now I know where I can get those thick scrunchies perfect for a good donut bun for myself! Thanks Achi Cams! :>
