This week, celebrities were wearing big buns so round that they looked like they could pull off into orbit. At a press junket for The Voice, Christina Milian's sleek, perfectly styled bun reached such great heights. Carmen Electra wore a wider style to a WWF event, and Malin Akerman rounded out the week with her slightly mussed-up orb. The bigger the bun, the more eccentric the style, but whose bun was the greatest of them all?
Yesterday, we asked readers to show us your buns — we're talking hair, of course. Instagram was filled with sky-high buns, topknots, and chignons; as you can see, some readers were creative with their accessories. We saw headbands, feathers, and braids that added extra pizzazz to this hair trend. Some styles were strategically arranged, while others were messy and whimsical. This is just a tease, though — we'll be sharing even more in our end-of-the-week roundup. Check out the schedule for the rest of the week:
Today's theme: Eyeliner
Wed. 28: Nail Art

Make the bread in small ramekins or a regular bread pan. Be sure to make plenty because once you taste these, you won't want to give them all away! For the gift of bread and butter, keep reading.
The holidays are a time for serious indulgence, and I like to end my indulgence on a sweet note before I worry about all those pesky New Year's resolutions. If you're hosting a happy New Year brunch or just want to have a few friends over for breakfast, bake up a batch of these honey-drizzled sticky buns.
Made with cool-rise dough filled with brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and pecans, these sweet treats will decadently conclude your holiday celebrations and start 2009 on a high note.
My mom whipped up the recipe, which comes from a family friend, as a Christmas morning treat, so if you can't stand to eat another bite this holiday season, just bookmark it for next year. (It would make a great edible gift.) To get the instructions, read more
