Would You Wear a Front Bun Like Thandie Newton?

Thandie Newton HairRichard Young/Startraks

Though the dog days of summer are still weeks away, we can already predict that our hairstyle of choice will be a chic and easy chignon. We’re also partial to a low, ballerina-style bun, and we love a topknot or even a side bun on occasion, too — gotta keep that hair off your neck on humid August afternoons! One style we’ve never tried, though, is the front bun, like the one Thandie Newton sported to a London Louis Vuitton event recently. While Newton is gorgeous enough to pull off pretty much hairstyle she tries, this might be the one bun that we’re not totally sure about trying out. Tell us: Would you rock a front bun like Newton? Sound off and you might see your answer in a future PEOPLE StyleWatch magazine!

I have a long skinny face. I think this may be cute on me. Kinda like a hair hat.

I’m loving this -some traditions are made to be broken and this just works so well on her. It’s refreshing and interesting. Not everyone can pull it off but lets embrace difference!

I wouldn’t wear it. Although it does look like a good way to keep people with bad breath at bay. No one can get too close to your face…

I think Thandie Newton is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood…but this hair makes her look like a 70 year old lady! The only thing missing is it being a completely gray head of hair. Not. Good.

Looks more like a hat than a hairstyle. There was a character on In Living Color who used to wear a little tiny hat propped to the side….yeah that’s what I’m reminded of when I look at her…

No! It looks like she has some sort of bumper on the top of her head but I guess it’s a useful crash pad!

Hilary on

I’m all for being adventurous with ones style but I agree with Sandy, it completely ages her.

Love the front bun!

Any styling just on top of your head is for a child 4 and under! What was she thinking?
