If you have short hair, bobby pins are key to pulling off bun hairstyles. You probably have layers that won’t make it all the way back to a hair tie, so meet them in the middle with bobby pins. If you have medium hair, make sure to use texture spray, especially with half-up styles. Medium hair (cuts with layers in particular) can look a little thin in bun hairstyles and texture spray will add volume. If you have long hair you’re in luck. You have the most versatility when it comes to bun hairstyles and updos, and you have enough length that half-up styles don’t look thin. Play around!
Using a bun donut can work wonders for getting medium length hair into bun hairstyles. and it’s handy for long hair, too. These accessories create a flawless bun shape and stay in place surprisingly well. Start with your hair in a ponytail and thread it through the donut. Take the donut to the ends and wrap the ends around the donut and toward the middle, being careful to get even amounts of hair all around it so it doesn’t peek through. Keep rolling down toward the base of your ponytail and secure with pins. You can start with clean, straight hair and keep it just so for a sleek bun, start with “day 2” hair and pull on some pieces to create a tousled look, or start with curly hair to create perfectly undone curly bun updos. However you like your bun hairstyles, just make sure to check in the mirror so that your hair covers the entire donut. Check out some of the best hairstyles we love for 2018.
