4 Bun Hairstyles You Have to Try:
1. The Strict Bun – is one of the most popular ways to make a bun and to do that, you will need a hair doughnut or a doughnut made out of a sock. It is the perfect elegant and classic bun that is suitable for night time events or for going to the office (for a smart look).
How you can make it: Gather your hair into a high ponytail using a hair band then take the hair doughnut and start rolling it all the way up to the base of the ponytail. Use a few bobby pins and hairspray to make it look smooth. Check out the tutorial for: Chic Side Bun.
2. The Messy Bun – for those days when you want to look more casual and sporty, it isn’t strict and the message behind it is: “ i want to feel comfortable”. It can be made with or without a hair doughnut and it is very suitable for going to school or certain classes, you will look youthful and young with it.
How you can make it: Basically, create it the same way as you would do a strict bun except smoothing out the hair because you want it to look messy! If you don’t have a doughnut just twist and roll the hair around the base of the ponytail and secure it with a few bobby pins. See: Messy Bun Hairstyle Tutorial.
3. The Braided Bun – is the type of bun that gives a romantic look and feeling to every person. If you wear it to special events, cocktails or on a date you will be very satisfied. It is a little difficult to make it by yourself but not impossible. For this type of bun you will need to have a few hair clips, hair bands and a few bobby pins.
How you can make it: You have to split the hair in the front into two sections and start braiding from one side as you can see in the picture, then do another braid on the other side. When you reached the base of the neck merge the two braids together into one, then twist and roll the hair into a bun. Use hairspray if you feel like! See: Braided Bun Hairstyles.
