85% of mums have admitted they are partial to a mum bun and who can blame them?
I have often scrolled through my camera roll to find a “nice” picture of my family and I, to see nothing but mum bun, slick back.. greasy looking mum bun!!!
I must admit, I have often caught a glimpse of myself in my mirror and was sure that Mrs Trunchbull from Matilda, was actually the person staring back at me!!! You see, the idea behind the mum bun is to keep your hair off your face, yes it might not be the ‘most attractive’ look but what if it could be? What if you love it so much it ends up being your “night out” hair do too? Now wouldn’t that be fabulous!!!!!
I just cannot get the “mum bun” right – I have tried everything and since finding out that lots of other mummies felt the same, we decided that it was time to get advice from a professional, … I mean, if we are going to be wearing this for the next 10 years+ we want it to be right don’t we?
