Six years ago, Lauren Conrad made the ballerina bun the hairstyle to rock. Since then, different variations of the bun—from a messier version to the quirkier space buns—popped up from left to right. But even with all the bun styles you can do, admit it, nothing spells cool casual more than the half up topknot. Even Elisse Joson and Gabbi Garcia love it!

While we have to admit that we easily fell in love at first sight with the half up topknot, just like in fashion, hair trends evolve, too. Now, we're seeing a more feminine, boho-inspired take on this popular bun style.


And with braids added to the equation, we have to say that the hun 2.0 is cooler, trendier, and more fun to rock, too! Watch the video below to find out how you can rock this cooler take on the half up topknot with a breeze!

Would you up the ante of your regular half up topknot for this boho-inspired 'do?
