I am told that my bun is a versatile hairstyle that can be used in a variety of situations. Depending on the style, a bun can be a functional style for household chores, a more polished look for work or school, or a sophisticated updo for a night out! No matter what kind of bun you want to make, you can look great in no time by just following a few simple steps!
I always envied those who could effortlessly throw their long hair into a bun on top of their heads and look perfectly polished without the use of damaging heat styling. Earlier this year I bought my first ‘donut’ and you could say it changed my life.. it didn’t but you could say it. It did, however, revolutionise my every day hair routine. I pretty much wore a bun for a month (day and night) until I had the Got2b mishap when I had to have it cut in to a short bob. That was a dark time I must say but happily hair does grow and it’s finally long enough (just) to cover a doughnut again and since I’ve been wearing it a lot lately I’ve had lot of requests for a how to.. so here it is. I got the clips from Debenhams (used promo code from here).
- You can choose to make your bun off-center for a more playful look if you would like. This look works best if your bun is placed either very low or very high.
- Because you are going for a messy bun look, don’t brush your hair or run your hands through it too much as you draw it back. Simply pick your hair up, resisting the temptation to finger brush it.
- Be sure to pick up any loose strands, and make sure that all of your hair has been included in your handful.
