Once you’ve mastered a basic bun, why not put your styling skills to the test and try out other gorgeous variations of the look? We’ve gathered some of our favorite ways to wear a bun below.
For this look, you can start with clean or second-day hair. Pick up a section of hair starting above each year. Use this section of hair to form a half-up high ponytail and hold it in place with a clear hair elastic.
Wrap the hair from the ponytail around the base of the hair elastic and secure it with bobby pins to form a bun. To create a messier look, gently loosen several strands from the bun and apply a few spritzes of Redken Fashion Waves 07 Sea-Salt Texturizing Spray. This sea salt hair spray adds instant texture, creating a tousled, beachy look.
Fringe is in and if you’re looking for the perfect way to show it off, why not try a messy bun? Pull your hair into a high bun while leaving your bangs free.
If you love the look of a single bun hairstyle, why not try two? Use a rattail comb to create a clean center part, then separate a section of hair above your ears and split it into two even segments on each side of your head.
Starting with either side, pull your hair into a high ponytail and twirl the hair around the base of the ponytail to form a bun. Repeat these steps with the opposite section and finish the look off with a spritz of hairspray.
Beginning with clean, dry hair, use a boar bristle brush to remove any snarls and gather all of your hair at the top of your head to create a high ponytail. Brush through your strands once more to ensure there are no bumps or creases and secure the ponytail with a clear hair elastic.
Rub a dime-size amount of hair gel like the Redken Hardwear 16 Super-Strong Sculpting Hair Gel in your palms and run it through the crown of your head to create a sleeker look. The super strong hold hair gel empowers styles to stay put with long-lasting control.
You’ll need a donut-shaped foam bun base for this next step. Pull the hair from your ponytail through the center of the donut, sliding it upwards until it is over your hair elastic. Cover the entire base of the donut with the hair from your ponytail and hold it in place with another elastic. Divide the remaining loose hair into two sections and wrap each one around the bun. Secure any loose pieces with bobby pins and lock everything in with a few spritzes of hairspray.
We’re in the midst of winter, but already counting down the days until spring begins. No hairstyle quite reminds us of beautiful springtime weather like rosette buns. They might appear complicated at first, but the gorgeous flower-inspired look is much easier to achieve than you think. A rosette bun is essentially a pancaked braid coiled to create the look of a rose. Once you have the technique down, you’ll be able to create a rosette bun updo that’s perfect for wedding season.
If you feel like your hairstyle is incomplete, chances are good you’re missing a killer accessory. Looking for a way to instantly amp up your low bun? Place a few floral embellishments throughout the look.
Curls and messy buns are a match made in heaven. If you’re working with unruly natural spirals, a messy bun is a simple and stylish way to tame your mane. Since curly hair is typically prone to frizz, apply an anti-frizz product like the Mizani Thermasmooth Shine Extend Anti-Frizz Spray throughout your strands. Spritz evenly after finishing the style to finish and lock in shine while resisting humidity.
Begin with clean, dry hair and create a center part from the front of your hairline all the way to the nape of your neck. Separate your hair into two even sections on each side of your head. Working with one side at a time, gather the entire section of hair starting at the hairline and separate it into three even segments—left, middle, and right.
Cross the right strand under the middle, then cross the left section under the middle. Repeat these steps, adding additional hair as you cross each section, until you reach the nape of your neck. Secure the Dutch braid with a hair elastic. Repeat these steps on the opposite side.
Combine the loose hair from both sections to form a low bun at the nape of your neck. Complete the look with a splash of hairspray.
