1 Double Bun

This first on this list of easy bun hairstyles is double the fun. Instead of just creating a single bun, why not put one on top of another, like this blogger from Style Me Pretty did. Separate the hair into two sections, clipping the bottom out of the way. Create a loose chignon on top by twisting the hair and coiling it around itself, and pin in place. Take the bottom section and repeat the same steps.

2 Side Braid Bun

Start by parting the hair on the side and separating a one-inch section of hair on the side of the part with more hair. Start creating an inverse French braid by braiding underneath instead of up and over. Pin the braid onto the back of the head, and loosely bring up the rest of the hair. Tuck it up and behind the braid. Feel free to pull out pieces to make the look a little more un-done, and lightly curl any loose hanging fringe with a curling iron.

3 Glam Bun

For a simple and sleek look, bring the hair up into a tight ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Loosely coil the hair around the hair tie so that it's more of a wide-set bun than a tight ballerina bun. Pin in place and you're ready to go!

4 Messy Bun

Similar to the previous bun, instead of pulling everything tight and neat, bring hair up in a haphazard manner and instead of securing with a hair tie, twist it around itself and wrap the hair tie around the messy bun you've just created. Pull out a few face-framing pieces and pull at the bun in different directions to finish off the look.

5 Half-Pony Bun

Part hair in the middle and loosely pull back into a half ponytail. Secure with a hair tie. Bring the rest of the hair up loosely and form a messy bun like the previous style. Let a few pieces hang loose in the front for a "messy on purpose" look.

6 Braided Bun

For a new kind of bun, after pulling hair up into a ponytail and securing with a hair tie, braid the ponytail and wrap the braid around. Pin in place for a pretty weaved-bun.

7 French Braid Bun

Start by making a loose french braid down the back of your head, but instead of braiding all the way down to the ends, stop at the nape of your neck and create a chignon. Actually, if you like, you can go ahead and braid all the way down and create a braided bun like the previous style!

The style possibilities with buns are pretty endless, and you can really create a variation of any one of these buns to make your own unique 'do. The "messy" look has really evolved over the years, which we think is a blessing since sometimes messy is about all that can be mustered in the mornings. Whether you like your buns to be disheveled or classic, we'd love to hear what some of your favorite styles are. Would you try one of these bun 'dos?
