The new samurai do and how to do it.

As the man bun is slowly declining women have decided to take back the haphazard chignon and take it one step further by leaving it half down.

Half samurai with the 2000's half up/half down style. We've noticed since last year during LA and London fashion week seen on fashionable and creative types. Not incredibly popular yet but we know this do will probably blow up in a couple more months. Despite it's near death towards the mainstream we love it regardless!

How to do it

  1. Bring only half of your hair up like you do with a high ponytail.
  2.  Tie your hair around a couple of times and then instead of bringing the 'tail' part out, you bring it out only half way to create a bun. 
  3. Then take the extra 'tail' part and wrap it around the base of the bun to cover the hair tie. 
  4. Make sure the bun isn't too tight or too neat looking. You want this to have an effortless cool lazy look. Because you are cool. And lazy.

Ta-da! It's even easier than the half up/half down do as you don't have to take the tail out all the way! Now go wear all black and bring us honor!
