How To Put Your Hair In Knot-So-Basic Buns

Buns aren't just for ballerinas. They can be cute, casual, elegant, and even easy to do! Check out a few do-it-yourself tips for putting your hair in a bun.

Cecilia's High Bun:
  • Start with a high ponytail.
  • Tease the entire ponytail and use hair spray for added texture.
  • Grab the ends and LOOSELY wrap the ponytail into a bun shape around the ponytail holder.
  • Use bobby pins to secure your hair close to the base.
  • Spray light hair spray around the hair line to smooth out whispies, more at the nape of the neck, and on the bun itself.
Rachel's Side Bun:
  • Start with second day hair, if possible.
  • Add texturizing spray.
  • Smooth over your hair with a brush.
  • Tease two sections of hair at the crown.
  • Tease a little on both sides of your part.
  • Create two sections from the top of your head to behind each ear. Pin these front sections out of the way.
  • Secure the back section with a ponytail holder low and to the side of your neck.
  • Use the tail of your teasing brush to loosen hair at the crown for height.
  • Wrap a tiny section of hair around the ponytail holder to hide it.
  • Tease your ponytail then smooth out the outside/top of the hair.
  • Make a loop under and pin it in place near the ponytail holder.
  • Fan out your looped ponytail/bun.
  • Take the small section of hair from one side of the front that you left out, wrap it back around the ponytail holder.
  • Do the same thing with the other side.
  • Spray with hairspray.
Rebecca's Low Bun:
  • Spray entire head in sections with texturizing spray or light hold hair spray.
  • Make a middle part.
  • Part your hair from the top of the head to behind the ear on each side and pin those sections out of the way.
  • Lightly tease the entire back section from root to ends, especially if you have layers.
  • Smooth the outer layer with a brush and secure into a low ponytail.
  • Tease the top side of your ponytail.
  • Loop the ponytail UP and pin it in place from the top.
  • Take one of the sides and pull it back, looping it around the ponytail holder.
  • Do the same thing with the other side.
  • Spray with hair spray.
