A simple hair bun is a no-fail hairstyle that looks just as great with an elegant outfit as it does on a bad hair day. You can dress up your simple hair bun with accessories like feather clips or flower barrettes or you can simply twist your hair and pin it back. Whatever you decide is right for the occasion, consider these tips on creating your own DIY simple bun hairstyle at home.
Weddings, graduations, and holidays (like Christmas and Thanksgiving) are just a few times when a simple hair bun may be the perfect hairstyle for the occasion. You should also consider a simple bun style for work, especially when your hair isn’t cooperating in the amount of time you’ve set aside to get ready in the morning.
You can create a simple bun hairstyle in a matter of minutes while you get ready. In fact, you might be able to style a simple bun in less time than you can apply all your makeup! Consider these DIY steps to create a simple bun hair style at home for any occasion:
Steps to Create a Simple Hair Bun
The bun is a professional hairstyle that can easily be tweaked to become carefree and playful. It’s all in the way you style your hair. To create your own simple bun hairdo, follow these steps:
1. Add styling product as needed to smooth out any fly-a-ways and brush your hair back.
2. For a sexy simple bun hairstyle, pull your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck.
3. Twist the ponytail in whichever direction feels most natural for you.
4. Fasten the bun with another ponytail elastic and bobby pins as needed.
5. Touch up any areas with fly-a-ways or hairs that seem to be out of place.
Variations of the Simple Bun Hairstyle
Once you are comfortable with creating a normal bun in your hair, consider changing up the style. You can create a simple chignon or a messy bun hairstyle. You can also do the simplest “lazy bun” style of all… when pulling your hair back into a ponytail, double-up the elastic a few times without pulling the ponytail strands all the way through the elastic. You will be left with a loop of hair that is perhaps the simplest bun hairstyle of all!
