The high bun
The high bun certainly isn’t for the shy retiring type, such a severe style brings all the attention to the visage, so flawless skin and confidence is preferable - at Yves Saint Laurent the high bun was even bedecked in black leather. The beauty of the high bun is that it is low-maintenance: once the look is achieved there is no need to spend the whole day fussing over hairs which are out of place since it’s all nicely out of the way. Be sure to complement such a style with a gorgeous lip colour (perhaps a berry red) and flaunt your feminine confidence.
