There are plenty of ways you can do your hair, but none of them is as popular as making a cute bun! In the following paragraphs, we will introduce you to some of the simplest ways to make your hair look gorgeous! Enjoy!


  1. The bouffant bun

To create this gorgeous look, start by making a messy high bun, using only one hair band. Take two big strands of hair from the front, making sure they’re not looking too neat. Pull each of them back and through the hair band. Secure them with bobby pins, and finish with a layer of hairspray.

  1. Messy top knot

This is one of the easiest hairstyles, but it also looks very cute when done properly. Start by making a ponytail, but without putting on the hair band. While holding it with one of your hands, use the other to wrap the hair band around and around until you’ve created the perfect top knot.

  1. Braided top knot

There will be times when you’ll want to spice it up a bit, and a braided top knot is the perfect hairstyle for just such occasions. To start, make a high ponytail, and braid the hair, securing the loose ends with a hair band. Wrap the braid around the base of the ponytail and finishing by securing it with bobby pins.

  1. Braid-wrapped bun

This gorgeous hairstyle can be completed in a matter of minutes. You’ll need to make a ponytail and pull it through a hair donut, securing the bun in place with a head band.

  1. Elegant bun

This hairstyle is not only elegant, but easy to do as well. Start by separating a strand of hair from both the top and one of the sides of your head.

  1. Chignon bun

To make a chignon bun, first you’ll need to separate your hair in two big strands. Twist the beginning of each one and secure them together just below the part where they’ve been twisted. As a finishing step, take the loose ends and tuck them into the space between the strands.
