The bun is a versatile hairstyle that can range from just being functional for doing household chores, a casual style to school or a dazzling look for a night out. Learn how to make a few basic buns, including a messy bun, ballerina bun, top knot bun, braid bun, and sock bun for an everyday variation of your hairstyle.

Step

Method 1 of 6: Making a Messy Bun

Make a Bun Step 1

Step 1. Prepare your hair

Brush your hair to remove any knots and tangles that may be present. To create a messy bun, you can choose to leave some sections of your hair loose or to pull all your hair from front to back.

Step 2. Pull your hair back

Without combing, take all the hair from the front near your face and gather it into one hand. Hold the hair in the location where you want to make a bun.

  • If you like, let a few strands of your hair or bangs hang down to frame your face.
  • To create a stunning look, pull your hair very high up to around the top of your head. For a more professional look, your hair should be pulled down the middle of the back of your head. For a relaxed messy bun, pull your hair at the base of your neck.
  • If you want, you can make your bun hairstyle not in the middle for a more fun look.
  • Since you'll be wearing a messy look, don't brush your hair or run your hands too often when pulling your hair back. Just grab your hair and resist the temptation to run your fingers through it.
  • Be sure to pick up any loose strands of hair, and make sure that all the hair is tucked into your hands.

Step 3. Make a ponytail by hand

Take a hair tie and tie it in your hair. You'll need about 3 ties to get a knot with the right tightness. In the third knot, don't pull your hair all the way through. Instead, let -⅓ section of hair fall down as a tail, while the remaining sections of your hair will form a loop at the top of the ponytail.

Step 4. Tie the hair with a bungee if necessary

Bungee is a hair tie that has a hook at both ends. If you have thick hair, the hair band alone may be difficult to tie completely. Try using a hair bungee or make your own.

  • To make a bungee, attach two bobby pins to a hair elastic. Pin one of them to the top of the ponytail where your hair is gathered. Wrap the rubber around the hair until it runs out. After looping the rubber several times, place a bobby pin in the middle of the ponytail to keep the rubber in place.
  • Be sure to blow the hair in the last loop of the rubber. Don't let your hair hang down like you would in a regular ponytail.

Step 5. Arrange a messy bun

Your hair is now in a large circle, with a tail sticking out underneath. Take the tail and tuck it into the base covering the hair tie. Use 2-3 tongs to secure it. Then, divide the circle in half in the middle, pull it close to the scalp and pinch.

  • You don't need to make a section that goes straight through/through the loop, just try to pin it to the head so it no longer looks like a ring.
  • Feel free to pull a few strands of your hair to make it look loose, or pin it in different directions for a more messy look.
  • Your hair should be long enough to create this look.

Step 6. Perfect the bun look

Spray a little hairspray to keep the bun long, and add some decorative hair accessories that you have. A cute headband or small bobby pin around the base of the bun is a great way to draw more attention to your bun.

Method 2 of 6: Making the Topknot

Step 1. Prepare your hair

Use a comb or hairbrush to remove any knots or tangles in your hair. The top bun uses the entire hair, so you can choose to comb your hair straight back for a neat look, or use your hands to pull your hair back for a more messy look.

Step 2. Pull your hair up high

Gather all the hair into a single fist from the front to the back to the top of the head. Make sure that there are no loose strands of hair and that all the hair is in your grip.

Step 3. Twist your hair into a knot

Take all the hair in your hand and twist it in the same direction, forming a rope. Then, tie it to the bun itself to make a spiral-like knot.

Step 4. Make a ponytail

Tie a ponytail around the top bun you've created, making sure that it doesn't get stuck in the middle or top of the bun, but is flush with your head at the base of the bun.

  • Pull out the strands for a messy look, or leave it as is.
  • If you have very long hair, your knot may be a little too 'vertical'. If this is the case, you can lean the bun to one side and clamp it. If not, let the bun stand up straight.
  • If you have thick hair, you may need to use a hair bungee instead of just a regular hair band.

Step 5. Perfect the bun look

Since this hairstyle is on top of your head, there may be hair at the nape of your neck that won't fit into a bun. Pin these hairs into your hair with a thin pin, then spray hairspray all over the head. Add any hair accessories you want.

Method 3 of 6: Making a Ballerina's Little Bun

Step 1. Prepare your hair

Remove all tangles and make sure your hair is really smooth by combing it thoroughly. The Ballerina bun is made using hair that's completely slicked back, so if your hair is frizzy or fly easily, spray your hair with water to slightly dampen it.

Step 2. Comb the hair into a ponytail

For this look it is necessary to use a brush comb to create the necessary smoothness. Comb your hair in a ponytail at any location on your head. The classic ballerina bun look is usually done near the top of your head, but you can do it anywhere along your scalp.

  • Make sure your hair is really smooth before tying it. You may have to brush your hair for a few minutes to make sure it's completely smooth, including the inside.
  • Once you're sure your hair is smooth, make a ponytail to tie the hair in your hand firmly. Make sure that the ponytail is not too loose which may fall off from time to time.

Step 3. Create a bun

Without twisting your hair into strands like a rope, tie your hair around the base of the ponytail. When you get to the ends, tuck your hair behind the loop and secure it with bobby pins.

  • Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, you will need about 3-7 bobby pins to keep the bun from moving. Avoid using more tweezers than necessary.
  • Slide the clips under the bun so that you can only see part of the ends. The pins should be tucked under (not over or around) the hair tie in the middle of your bun.
  • If you have hairstyles of different lengths, you may need to use extra bobby pins to hold your hair in place.
  • If your hair is curly or wavy, you may need to use a blow dryer or straightener to straighten your hair before styling it.

Step 4. Perfect the bun look

This hairstyle requires hairspray to set it well. Spray hairspray in the direction the hair is sticking out, and use your fingers to smooth each strand. Finished

Method 4 of 6: Creating a Braided Tidy Hairstyle

Step 1. Prepare your hair

Brush your hair to remove all knots and tangles in the hair. You can choose to have some or all of your hair pulled back, so comb it as you wish. If your hair is very curly, consider spraying it lightly with water to keep the hair from sticking out.

Step 2. Pull the hair back

The braided bun hairstyle can be placed anywhere on your head. This hairstyle can be created using a brush for a very professional and dazzling look, or pulled back with your fingers for a more relaxed look. Use a ponytail to secure its position on your head.

Step 3. Braid your ponytail

starting at the base, and forming a normal braid by separating your hair into three sections and crossing them over each other. You should start by moving the section on the right to the center, and then take the section on the left to the center. Continue this pattern until the end of your ponytail.

  • When you get to the end, hold it and pin it to your head, so there's no need to use a hair tie.
  • You can also prevent the braid from opening by twisting or attaching hair clips in an X shape at the ends.
  • If you feel that you absolutely must use a hair tie for this hairstyle, try using a small hair tie to keep it out of sight. If you don't, the hair tie will be visible from the inside of your bun.

Step 4. Create a bun

Twist the braid in a spiral starting at the base. When you get to the end, tuck it behind the base of the bun. Secure the hair with a few tongs, making sure that your hair won't come loose.

Step 5. Perfect the bun look

If you want, you can pull a few strands of hair out of the bun to create a messy look. Spray some hairspray on your hair, and add any cute accessories you might like. A beautiful hair tie goes well with a braided bun to make it look more bohemian.

Method 5 of 6: Making Sock Buns

Step 1. Prepare your hair

Brush your hair to remove knots and tangles. A sock bun usually uses all of your hair, but you can only use part of it if you like.

Step 2. Pull the hair back

Determine the location of the sock bun on the head. The trend that is currently popular is to place it on top of the head, similar to the top knot. You can have a more classic look by placing it around the base of the neck. Secure with a hair tie.

Step 3. Prepare the socks

Take an old clean sock, and cut the closed end near the toes. It's best to use socks that are the same color as your hair, but any color can work. Now your sock is shaped like a cylinder with a hole in the middle. Roll the sock (similar to how you wind nylon thread) until it is shaped like a donut.

Image
Image

Step 4. Put your socks in a ponytail

Take a sock and put a ponytail into it, then pull the sock up to the base of the ponytail. This is to make sure all the hair strands are in. Then, hold the ponytail and slide your sock back all the way to the end.

Image
Image

Step 5. Start making the bun

Thread the ends of the hair around the sock donut, so that it forms a loop and the ends are placed in the center of the sock hole.

Image
Image

Step 6. Roll the sock inward towards the base of the ponytail

When you roll the sock towards the base, your hair will gather around the hoop.

Move the hair in a twist like when you roll up a sock so that the hair doesn't curl on only one side and the sock will show on the other side

Step 7. Once you get to the base of the bun, arrange it so that it looks the way you want

Socks shouldn't come loose, but if you're worried about your hair falling out, use a few bobby pins to hold it in place on your head.

Image
Image

Step 8. Perfect the bun look

Pull out a few strands of hair if you want to make the sock bun look more messy, then spray some hairspray through your hair to set it. Use a cute hair accessory you might like, and you're done!

Step 2. Pull the hair and make a ponytail

Adjust the location of the pigtail with the position of the bun. You can make a bun high, low, or in the middle of the head. For thick hair, you may need to use a hair bungee instead of just a regular hair band.

Step 3. Twist the hair

Once your hair is in a ponytail, take the ends and gently twist them. Continue twisting your hair until it's completely twisted into a ponytail.

Image
Image

Step 4. Shape the hair into a bun

Once completely twisted, wrap your hair in a circle or spiral around your scalp. Tuck the ends of the hair under the bun.

Step 5. Keep it in a bun with bobby pins

Once the bun is formed, insert a few bobby pins to hold it in place. To make it even tighter, slide the bobby pin against your scalp then rotate it 180 degrees and push it into the middle of the bun.

Step 7. Unwrap the bun to get wavy hair

If you leave the bun for a few hours, you can end up with wavy hair. To keep your wavy hair longer, apply a styling product when you make a bun and then spray it with hairspray when you're done.

Tips

  • Always use a hair tie that matches your hair color so it doesn't show through the middle of your bun.
  • You can use wet or dry hair and curly or straight hair for this style.
  • Make sure the socks are the same color as your hair!
  • Use hair clips.
  • Hair that sticks out of a bun or remains at the base of the neck will also look beautiful if you make it wavy with a curling iron instead of keeping it smooth with pins.
  • For a sock bun style, once you're done smooth it out with your hands.
  • For a messy bun, try playing with your hair to add volume to the bun.

Warning

  • Always check the supply of bobby pins and never use clips that do not have a protective cap on the end. A broken hair clip will scratch your scalp and break your hair.
  • Avoid using this hairstyle (or any other hairstyle) every day to reduce breakage.
