Hero! Woman removes messy bun without scalping herself

By  | 

An Edinburgh woman has been highly commended today after managing to remove her hair from a messy bun without pulling half of it out.

Meghan Poole, 29, was travelling on the bus from work to meet a friend for drinks, when she decided to wear her hair down for the occasion. “I thought it would be a nice way to make myself look a bit more glam, so I braced myself for the worst,” Meghan spoke of the event. “My whole face was clenched as I reached up to the bun to find the hair tie, but when I went to start yanking at it, it just came loose immediately.”  

“She pulled the tie out and her hair just cascaded down her shoulders like in the shampoo adverts” said Jemima Ryan, 34, a witness to the events. “Not one stray hair stayed caught up in the tie, I swear it was like I was watching in slow motion.”

“I’ve never seen anything like it, she arrived at the bar looking like she’d just stepped out of the salon,” said Michelle Wallis, 28. “When she told me she’d had her her in a bun all day, I thought she must have just cut the whole lot off.”

“I’ve lost count of the number of hair ties I’ve sacrificed for the messy bun cause,” Meghan shared. “I’ve kept the hair-free tie around my wrist since it happened, so I have the pink indented line as a nice reminder of my triumph for the rest of my life.”
