Let’s face it- wearing a ponytail every time you want to put your hair up can get a bit boring. Plus, ponytails don’t cut it for most formal situations. This is where the bun comes in handy. Women with medium to long hair can instantly create a chic bun in minutes. Here are some fabulous ways to rock the bun.
Tina Fey shows us how to work the low side bun—a super classy and sophisticated look that is perfect for formal events or wedding. This ‘do works best if the hair has some curl added to it first to add hair volume.
Katie Holmes is often papped running around New York looking fabulous with a messy top knot. Here, she wears a loose high bun with extra volume added in the crown for a pretty, fresh look. Square face shapes and round face shapes will look great in this bun as it adds height to the face.
For a sleek and sexy look, do a Kim Kardashian with this super slick bun. Not a hair is out of place in this tight hairstyle, which works well for glam affairs only…if you pair it with jeans and a t-shirt, you’ll end up looking like an off-duty ballerina. Another bonus of this hairstyle—the instant facelift effect!
