Five Bun Hairstyles That Will Look Great On You
Bun hairstyles are great because of their versatility. There’s something about buns that have many of us thinking of them as a go to hair style, especially those days when you’re on your second or third day of not washing your hair. They’re super easy, but bring a lot of style no matter how you wear them. We do realize, however, that it’s easy to think of buns in one way or style. To give you some great bun-inspiration we found five bun hairstyles that will look great on you.
Reverse Braided Bun
Is there a better combination than braids AND buns? We can’t think of any. If you’re all about the high bun, worn messy or more tailored we have the perfect update to an old classic. The reverse braided bun is one of our favorites right now. All you do is create a French braid in your hair starting at the nape of the neck and working your way UP until you reach an area on your head that you want your bun to rest. Tie the rest of the hair in a bun and voila!
You’ve probably noticed that the 90’s are back in style, beauty and trend-hair styles included! A fun classic bun hair style that feels new again is splitting the hair into two sections with a middle part. After the hair has been sectioned off, pull each side up into individual buns. They can be messy or more slicked back. Either way you’re sure to look great!
We’ve already shared the reverse bun hair style, but that’s not the only way you can combine braids with buns. Whatever height you like to create your bun, do so but just pull the hair back into a ponytail, leaving the rest of the hair down. With that hair that’s down create a braid with the hair, once you’ve done that wrap the braid around to give your bun a whole new look.
Half-up hair styles are the perfect way to get some of your hair out of your face, but still have some of your locks down and flowing freely. Since half-up styles are so great, and bun styles are as well-why not combine them? It’s all about the combination hair styles with buns right now. Pulling your hair back in a half up amount is great, but when you use the tail part of the hair that’s pulled back to create a messy bun you’ve created a totally unique and edgy look.
Messy Low Bun
So often when we think of bun hair styles it’s the high top knot bun styles, but they don’t all have to be resting high on your head to be just as chic. Low, messy buns are incredibly simple to create and can give you a completely different look even when you’re just lowering the height of the bun on your head. Create some texture in your hair with waves and texturizing product and leave a few pieces framing your face for a perfectly imperfect look.
