The high bun is a worldwide-approved classic hair style and happens to be one of my favorite go-to style. It being easy to achieve happens to be a bonus. There are so many types of high buns and you can get creative with them by adding your own extra touch.
My go-to high bun falls somewhere between messy and neat, or that’s what I like to think. I’ll let you be the judge of that.
All you need to achieve this high bun is a snag-free hair band , bobby pins (short &long ones) and a hair brush.
Step 1: Pull all of your hair up into a high ponytail using the snag-free hair band. If you have thick hair, don’t make it too tight or too high as it might give you a headache.
Step 2: Loosely roll your hair around the secured hair band in a diagonal direction. starting from the tips down and securing the tips under the formed bun.
Note: This high bun can also be achieved if your hair isn’t relatively long by using a small-sized donut bun. To achieve this, make an inconspicuous or messy division/hole in the center of your hair when trying to wrap your hair around the bun. Also, tuck your hair loosely under the bun and in a diagonal direction.
Step 3: Use bobby pins to secure the tips, and keep the bun in place. Do not make it tight.
Step 4: Hydrate with a spray bottle, brush from your hairline to the bun. Use a gel or edge control for a sleek finish.
