Bun





                                               




The bun was a representation of the dividing line between the unoccupied child and the busy woman. As a child, there was a lot of time to grow and tend a mane of long healthy hair, imperative to maintain as the child grew into womanhood. But as the child became occupied, the hair got in the way, and there were two simple options, to cut short or tie down. The former was drastic and permanent, so the latter was adopted as a temporary condition.

You could have the best of both worlds, long flowing feminine tresses in the evening and recreational hours, and short and out of the way in the daytime hours. The bun was the quickest solution. That did not mean it could not be styled. Early Chinese ladies sometimes had their buns rise a foot above their heads. The bun could be half, full or multiple, depending on how much time and concern for attractiveness was involved. The bun of Queen Victoria was usually draped and served as a base for a tiny crown. There are formal buns, informal buns, high buns and low buns, some given twists, other twirls, an infinite variety of shapes and conditions able to be accomplished. They did not have to be relegated to the stern, no-nonsense school teacher variety. They could even be elegantly styled and enhanced for formal occasions. 15hqql.
