Hair Bun Styles

Hair bun started not as a style but as a necessity. Styling the hair into a bun is the most efficient and trendy way to manage the hair when time is short to indulge in any elaborate hair styling. Leaving the hair free and flowing, though looks beautiful, always gets into the way when doing any work. So, the hair is generally tied down as a temporary measure, rather than keeping the hair open. And what better way to tie the hair than to twist it into a bun. Within seconds your unmanageable tresses are under control! For busy women, the bun offers the best and the easiest solution. In time, the hair bun has evolved into a distinct style of its own. Nowadays, there are quite a lot of hair bun styles that one can go for. This can also be considered to be the oldest form of hair styling and there are numerous ways in which the bun can be given a distinct look, depending upon the taste and time. Given below in the article are a few such hair bun styles that you can go for.
Different Hair Bun Styles
The Basic Bun
This is the most casual hair bun and can be made with any hair length. This bun style is also very easy to do.
  • Gather the front and middle hair by raking them with your fingers into a pony at the middle or back of the head.
  • Using the left hand hold the pony against the head, and with the right hand twist the pony to the end.
  • Now slowly wrap the hair holding the twisted end around the base till the end. Then secure the end with pins or a clutch.
The Double Bun
For medium and long hair, this is a great bun style. This bun also looks good on wavy and curly hair.
  • Divide your hair into two sections by parting it at the center of the scalp, from the forehead to the nape.
  • Take one side first and gather the hair into a loose ponytail at the nape. Then make a similar ponytail for the other side too.
  • Coil each pony into a bun and secure it with a hair band. Make sure that you coil the ponytails tightly.
  • You can also plait the ponytails first and then coil them to form a bun for a variation of this style. This will especially look good in people who have long hair.
Chignon Bun
This is a simple and elegant bun style and is suitable for any formal occasion.
  • First smooth the hair straight back using a paddle brush. You should also remove any tangles from the hair. At the nape, gather the hair into a ponytail and secure it with a hair band.
  • Grip the ponytail firmly around the base with one hand and with the other twist it into a tight spiral. While still holding the base, lift the ponytail straight up and coil it clockwise around the base.
  • While coiling, remove the hand holding the base and hold the bun as you continue the coiling. After completing the coil, tuck the end of the ponytail into the bun. Secure the chignon bun with pins or a hair stick.
