Quick and Easy Hairstyles - The Buns

I don't usually do a lot of posts talking about hair or hairstyles, so I thought I would mix it up and do a little mini-series on a bunch of relatively quick hairstyles I do. I am going to break them down into sections based off of general appearance or technique of the hairstyle. For the first one, I thought I would stick to buns as that's my daily go to hairstyle when I'm in a hurry or don't want to fuss with my hair for a long time period.

Messy Bun

I do this in one of two ways and also depending on if I have hair extensions in or not. And the only reason I mention the hair extensions is that if I put them in then I have to put them in upside down otherwise it's very obvious that I have clip in hair extensions in. And that goes for most of the buns as I have to put them in differently depending on the bun's location.

For the bun itself, I gather all my hair on the top of head then do one of two things:

  1. Twist the hair then wrap it around itself before securing with an elastic band. Then playing around with the bun until it looks as desired using bobby pins as needed.
  2. Wrap elastic band around hair while forming bun. Then play around until it looks as desired.

Half up Bun

The half up bun is the same as the messy bun only instead of using all your hair, only use the top few layers of your hair to create the bun. I either do the bottom half straight or wavy, depending on my mood.

Twisted headband bun

This hairstyle looks like you spent a lot of time doing your hair, when you honestly spent 0 minutes doing it. To start with, find your favorite headband and place it around your head. Leave your hair completely underneath the headband then you just take the hair and wrap it around the band until it's all in the back. Then just tuck and secure away any fly away hairs with bobby pins
