If you’re a short haired beauty you’ve probably spent a decent amount of time (probably more than you’d like to admit) trying to pin your hair back into a bun. When you have short hair pinning your hair back can definitely get tricky, especially having it actually STAY back. We know when you have short hair it can feel limiting when it comes to styling your hair and since buns are so popular, we didn’t want you to feel left out. We’re sharing some of our favorite tips to twisting short hair into a bun to get you all the details you need to know!
Work In Sections
Since you have shorter hair to work with, one of the best ways to really twist your hair into a bun is going to be working in sections. Depending on whether you’re creating a high bun or low bun will determine how you break up the sections of hair. It’s important to realize that you don’t have to twist all your hair back in one big swoop to get it into a bun, divide your hair so that it’s easier to manage and work with. This way you will also be able to have more control, pinning back sections with bobby pins if they fall a bit, etc.
It’s All About The Products
Here’s the thing, when it comes to styling hair in general using the right hair care products can make or break achieving the hairstyle. This holds especially true when a short haired lady is looking to achieve a bun hairstyle. Using products like texturizing sprays/mousse and volumizing products can really help you to create a gorgeous hairstyle, especially when you’re looking to create a bun. These two types of products tend to work really well for short haired buns because they create the illusion of having more hair and give your hair some extra holding power.
Add Actual Twists
When working with shorter hair it can be the fly away pieces and shorter layers that can cause problems when trying to pin it back into a bun. If you find this is a struggle for you, try actually incorporating twisted pieces of hair into the bun hairstyle. The twists can wrap the layers around one another to keep them locked down a bit easier and allow you to actually keep your hair back, without trying to use a can of hair spray to do so.
We also think it’s worth noting that some of the most gorgeous bun hairstyles are the ones that aren’t ‘perfect.’ Having little fly away pieces around your face and the more effortless look is often more interesting than a bun that’s that perfect slicked back style, especially right now! In addition, remember that before you get frustrated it can take a bit of practice to get used to twisting your hair back into a bun. If you have some free time on the weekend or in the evenings use it to practice so you’re not trying to style your hair differently as you’re running out the door.
