Creating classic Audrey Hepburn hair

1.  Classic Audrey Hepburn hair

Split your hair into two sections, one of which will be to create bangs and the other for the bun.

Leave the bang section hanging forward and put the bun section into a high ponytail. Put your ponytail into a bun. If you have fine hair, you can use a hair donut to help create the bun.

Creating classic Audrey Hepburn hair

Use two fingers to roll the front section of hair all the way up to the top.

3.  Another Breakfast at Tiffany’s look

Audrey Hepburn does have another look in the movie that’s a bit sassier than the first look. For this look, opt for a knee-length, rather than a long black dress if you have one.

Pair it with the same pumps and black gloves from the first look.

The big statement in this look is the hat.

Try to find a big black wide brim hat and wrap some long white fabric around it. Keep the bun in your hair, because it will help hold your hat on your head!

I kept the same earrings as in the first look and found a vintage Chanel bag to further accessorize this look.
