6 Gorgeous and Easy Ways to Wear a Bun on Natural Hair

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?

Hair must be nutured as well as the whole body. The more vitamins you eat, the healthier is your hair. There is a nice dietary supplement that contains basic compounds for enhancing hair growth and stopping hair loss — Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade. This product is the only nutraceutical which possesses PGD2 blocking properties. In my case effect is visible — much thicker hair and almost no seasonal hairloss.

The only thing I would warn against with buns is to be mindful of your bangs and edges when you are making buns. Some naturals pull their hair back too tightly and have their bangs and edges seared or practically painted to their scalp so that their hair looks super-neat. Please refrain from doing that or only do it sometimes. Make sure cornrows and flat twists are not too tight. I speak from experience. I have spare bangs and thin edges on one side from years-long practices like that but the rest of my hair is full and BSL, in… Read more »
