Who says buns have to be bland? Spice them up with these simple tutorials:
1. Elegant Criss-Cross Chignon (or Low Bun)
For this look, start with hair that is stretched via a twist-out or braid-out. You will also need a few bobby pins and an ouchless band. Check out the video to see how Naturally Curious actually achieves this style.
2. Three Twists and a Bun
Lovelyanneka never ceases to amaze me with her creative styling. You do not need a lot of length for this beautiful look nor do you actually need flat-twisting skills. Watch the video to see what I mean …
3. Double-Twisted Bun with Pompadour
Now this bun can be considered as an alternative (or sister) to the one in number #2. The major differences are that this one involves a donut (instead of Marley hair) and a pompadour. Check out the video to see how ImmaDstarra achieves this style.
4. Front Donut Bun
If you are in love with the look of big high buns, then check out this slight variation. You do not need hair down to your waist to create this look. It can be done on medium-length hair and with the aid of a big donut for illusion.
5. Twisted Cinna-Bun
This bun is great for the natural who cannot quite get all her hair into one ponytail. Additionally, the twists add a layer of elegance and protection over the usual cinna-bun. Check out the tutorial to see Naprika creates this look.
6. Pinned Bun Variation
This is another tutorial that gives the illusion of a big bun. All you will need are bobby pins, a ponytail hook (or alternatively, an ouchless band), … and a workable twist-out. Watch how Ambrosia demonstrate how to effortlessly create this style.
Ladies, would you wear any of these styles?
