As with many hair-up styles a little practice and you can achieve this hair look
in a couple of minutes. The classic bun is one of the easiest
hairstyles in the hair up section and is so simple that it is used to control long and medium length hair styles for sports and work as often as the ponytail. To give the hair bun a fresh and modern feel keep it informal and not
too tidy, in other words, if you mess up it will undoubtedly look
better! The only criteria for this style is that your hair is
long to mid length, at least over your shoulders. If yours is not and you fancy
something similar see chignon.
Tools and other bits and pieces
you will need:
Covered band to match hair colour
Hair pins or grips to match hair
Paddle brush (best type of brush
for a smooth effect)
- Brush for a neater effect or finger
rake your hair back for a casual effect, into a ponytail at
the nape of your neck. Secure it with a covered band.
- Twist the tail until the hair
begins to stiffen and recoil on itself.
- If you are after a messy finish
to your bun, pull a few pieces out at this stage from close
to the ends of the ponytail so that the pieces are not too long.
- Wrap the tail around on itself
in the nape to form the bun.
- Secure the end by poking it under
the original covered band and then securing with a hairpin or
Try sweeping your hair from a low
side parting into a bun at the back or even taking the top section
of your hair into a bun and leaving the rest to hang free.
