Double Bun

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.


To give it a playful twist, try playing with the texture of your hair before starting. Curl your locks with a curling iron or add some sea-salt spray for a beachy vibe. Once both buns are secure, loosen a few strands to frame your face, giving it an effortlessly chic look. If you’re feeling adventurous, add a touch of sparkle with some decorative hairpins or dress up your buns with colorful scrunchies. This look is perfect for when you want to add a bit of whimsy to your day without much fuss.


Side Braid Bun

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.


Secure the ends of your braid with clear elastic and start arranging the hair that's not in the braid into a low bun at the nape of your neck. Twist the remaining hair around the base of the braid and secure it with bobby pins. For an extra touch of sophistication, you can wrap a small strand of hair around the base to hide the elastic and pins. Mist a bit of hairspray to ensure the style holds throughout your day. This hairstyle adds an elegant twist to the classic bun, making it perfect for afternoon outings or a professional look at work.


Glam Bun

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!


Messy Bun

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.


Half-Pony Bun

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.

Famous Quotes

One who gains strength by overcoming obstacles possesses the only strength which can overcome adversity.

Albert Schweitzer

Braided Bun

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.


French Braid Bun

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?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I just wanna say that this post they say it like you do it yourself, where I know most of these photo have been done by a professional and I can imagine being a hairdresser myself it would have take roughly 30 min to do. Try a simple version of these seeing as it is supposed to be in a rush on a busy day.

There was another post like this earlier this week. I love the ideas so much but I wish there was more for people with long thick hair. I try these styles and either have to use 100 pins or it just plain won't work because of all my hair! Again these are great ideas and really pretty thanks for posting them.

Or shoulder length hair

What's with all the repeating of posts? It's getting annoying!
