Buns have always been one of the most hottest hair trend and they aren’t going to stop being soo famous soon! You can wear a bun with every outfit and for every occasion and the best part is that it is very easy to make! Almost every time you need only a hair donut, a hair tie and some bobby pins to put everything in place. There are four types of buns that every girls should wear at least once – the messy bun, the braided bun, the high bun and the strict bun. And because I am a fan of experimenting and trying new things, I will share with you how to do and style these simple buns!
The strict bun
The strict bun is the most basic type of buns. To do it you just have to take a hair bun, roll it on your hair (before that, you have to gather your hair into a ponytail), adjust it so your hair covers everything and secure with bobby pins. You need to make it very tight and use hair spray to smooth it out. The strict bun is perfect for an office environment where you have to have simple, yet polished look without anything fancy or special. Style it with a pair of stud earrings and you’re done! You can also use this type of bun when you’re doing excercise to get your hair out of your face.

The messy bun
The messy bun is the cooler versin of the strict bun. Do it the same way, but this time don’t secure everything with bobby pins and hair spray and mess it up a bit. You can also make it without the hair bun (just gather your hair in a ponytail, twist it and pin it on your head) and you will get an even messier bun. It’s perfect for school where you want to look effortless but cute; when you add some bold chunky earrings you can turn it into the perfect night hairstyle or just put some pyjama pants on, call your friends and watch movies all night, rocking a cute messy bun!

The braided bun
The braided bun is one of my personal favorites when it comes to updos – it’s so girly and timeless that you can basically wear it on every occasion and with every outfit! It’s very easy to do – just make a ponytail, braid it till the end and twist it so it becomes a bun. Use bobby pins and clear hair ties if it’s neede to secure it and voila – you’re done! I personally will style this hairstyle with a girly floral dress, balerina flats and a cute cardigan to correspond the upcoming fall season. You can always dress it up with a long evening dress with an open back and some stylish long earrings.

The high bun
The high bun is basically a messy bun but put very high on your head. It’s done the same way (just, as I said, you need to make the ponytail very high) and it has been a preferable look for many celebrities and models this summer. The high bun is the more fashionable version of a usual bun and thus you can wear it in many different ways – my favorite combo for this season is with leather jacket, distressed jeans and biker boots. To make the look more feminine you can always add a floral shirt underneath or some dainty jewelry – the clash between the manly leather and the girly acessories is very “in” right now!
