4 More Gorgeous and Easy Ways to Wear a Bun on Natural Hair

• Jan 20, 2014

This is a continuation of the last styles post on 6 Gorgeous and Easy Ways to Wear a Bun on Natural Hair.  Here are four more spins on the classic bun, including a style involving twists:

1. High “Bun”- Like Do

Video here:

Even if you do not have enough length for a bun, you can pull off this “bun”-like do.  Start from a puff on stretched hair.  Then secure the loose hair with hair pins into a bun shape.  View the above tutorial for an illustration!

2. Elegant Side-Swept Bun

Now this side-swept bun may look complex, but it is actually fairly easy to do.  It essentially involves rolling or flat-twisting three sections from the front and three towards the back.  Then you form a bun from your hair that is left free.

3. Frizz-Free Donut Bun and Twists

For those who want a super chic spin on the classic bun, check out this tutorial.  Start with several medium twists throughout the front section of your hair.  Then, using a donut, bun the back of your hair.  Lastly, finish off by stylishly pinning the front twists.

4. Chunky Twists into Side Bun

Start from a set of chunky twists and a side part for this simple look. Proceed to flat twist one side and then the other.  Finally, gather your hair into a bun, and that’s it!  Check out the tutorial for details!

Ladies, would you wear any of these styles?

YAY! I love this post. I just took my braids out after having them in from June 2013 — January 2014 and I realized by hair was fuller and a bit longer all around. Now I don’t know what to do with it! This was spot-on.
