Here’s a quick, easy tutorial on how to make the perfect up bun. The best thing about this hairstyle is its versatility. The bun can be your go-to on a lazy Sunday afternoon, a minimalistic style on your dressier occasions, and a chic look you can wear everyday.
1. The only tool you need for this style is a thin elastic hair tie. Run a comb through your hair beforehand if you want a sleeker bun, but otherwise, leave it as is.
2. Flip your head upside down and gather your hair into a ponytail at a little above eye level, smoothing out the sides as you go. Hold the ponytail in place without tying it. Twist the entire length, holding it at the base as you begin to twirl your would-be ponytail into the bun shape.
3. Once you’ve formed your bun, wrap the end around and hold it in place.
4. Secure the bun with your hair tie. Adjust and straighten it out as you like by tugging around the center of the elastic. Tuck loose ends back under the band or secure them with a bobby pin and there you have it – the perfect up bun!
