The demi-chignon or "hun" hits the runway and the streets

After the return of the half-up ponytail that was so popular back in the 90s, it's now the hun, or half bun's turn to make a successful comeback in the fashion world. Let's take a closer look at this style that's becoming more and more popular on the catwalk.

You might not have heard of the word "hun" in any beauty context, but you will soon, and you've certainly seen it on the runway, in magazines and even out and about without necessarily realizing that this look is the new must-have hairstyle. The half bun is everywhere, and you'll be working it too soon!

The hun, a winning hairstyle combination

Nineties' fashion is back, and it's here to stay: neo-retro looks are on the fashion horizon. The perfect example of this is the hun, a high half bun: between the classic, sensible half-up ponytail, the wild-child mini buns, and the glamorous high ponytail from the 90s. The hun is a hybrid of three retro hairstyles, which produces a vintage-inspired modern style at the forefront of this season's trends!

The half bun: a multitude of options

The advantage of this hairstyle (perfect for adding a modern, grungy twist to a classic style) is its easy versatility. Move it a little higher for a hint of glamour, slightly lower for a preppy look, tighten it for a professional touch, tousle for a rebellious edge, and even braid it for a wistful bohemian aura. It adapts to your mood, whatever its height or style, and subtly lengthens your silhouette, saving you from slipping into your stilettos. Fashionistas can finally let their tootsies breathe without sacrificing their style!
