New York City is home to many of the city’s most beautiful women, but one area that’s lacking in the boho aesthetic is hair, and that’s the hair in bunches.
The New York Times’ Amy Dacey explains.
(Amy Dacey/The Washington Times) In the summer of 2015, Dacey was on a New York beach when she was approached by a friend.
She wanted to try out a style of haircut called a “chiffon bun.”
“She said, ‘You know, this looks really good on me,’ ” Dacey recalls.
“I said, oh my God, I’m wearing a bun.”
She tried it out, and she fell in love.
“She was so confident in what she was doing, I said, you know, let’s see if this goes away,” she says.
But the bun didn’t.
Dacey began to realize she’d be fine with it.
“It was a little weird at first, but I was like, ‘Oh my God.
I don’t think I could ever get rid of this.'”
And so she tried it on again, this time with a different bun, and it worked just fine.
“And then she did this other one, and I went, ‘OK, so this is kind of a weird look.’
I said to myself, this is not the way I’m going to wear it, but this is the way it’s supposed to look,” she explains.
She also tried the hairstyle on on her younger daughter, who was six.
“So, we’re in the backyard, and the little girl comes running up to me and says, ‘Mommy, you’re not going to do that.'”
But that wasn’t what she thought.
“Because she’s a little girl, and what a beautiful child,” she tells Dacey.
“But she had no idea she was wearing this bun, so she was like: ‘Oh, my God!’
And I was thinking, ‘What are you thinking, Mommy?’
And she was, like, oh, my god, I just love this bun.
I’m just going to have to wear this bun.”
And so, in March of this year, Dacy put on a bun for her daughter to wear.
“We were in the middle of the ocean,” she recalls.
She says her daughter was a total mess.
“You can’t believe how much mess she made,” she remembers.
“For about an hour and a half, she just couldn’t control herself, and then she was so happy that she had a bun on.”
The bun was the perfect way to keep her child from feeling like they didn’t have enough control.
“This bun, it is very important to me,” she told Dacey, adding that her daughter has since grown up and embraced the bun as a fashion statement.
“My daughter has now come to terms with this and said, that’s what I should wear.
It’s her style.
And she’s going to love it.”
But it’s not just her daughter who loves the bun, the hair trend has been embraced by other women.
It has even reached celebrities like Caitlyn Jenner, who famously wore it on her Oscar-winning 2015 cover, and Rihanna.
“The fact that you have an all-natural hairstyle like that has been a really big deal to me, because it shows how much women really care about this, because I’ve been in relationships where they were like, we don’t want to wear the bun on TV,” she said.
“They don’t need to look like they’re a fashion model.”
And the trend is getting even more popular among the general public.
In February, for instance, the New York Post published an article featuring a photo of a woman with a bun that read, “I wear a bun because I love my hair.”
The article was widely shared and featured on social media, where the woman wrote that she wanted to show her hair to her mom and she also said that she would love to wear her bun on a magazine cover.
“People are really supportive of it, so it’s just really important,” she wrote.
“What I hope is that when people start seeing it, it’ll be a trend, not just something that’s just for the ladies.
And it’s really important to women that they understand that they have power over their hair.”
“It’s definitely an extension of the fashion and beauty trend that I think is really powerful, and really important for women,” says Dacey of the bun trend.
“When I see other women embracing it, I think, ‘Wow, that makes me feel more empowered, and more comfortable with my hair.'”
So why is it a trend?
Dacey says that there are a few reasons.
First, because the trend has helped women get back to a healthy relationship.
“Sometimes women don and sometimes men don’t have the same things going on with their
