DIY File: The Easiest Hair Bun Tutorial

My friend Aylin is back from road tripping across Canada and I couldn’t be happier to have her back home 🙂 With the Holidays fast approaching I wanted to share some super easy hairstyles that you can master in a matter of minutes (I’m not kidding!), and that can make you look more put together for those special events or parties you might have in the next few weeks. This time around we got together to bring you three super easy hair buns that I’ll be sharing each Thursday for the next 2 weeks 🙂

First up, a sleek, chic and elegant low bun that would look amazing with a gorgeous dress or top. Add some statement earrings (or keep it minimal) and you’re good to go! You won’t believe how straight forward this tutorial is and all you need is a couple of minutes, a hair elastic, some bobby pins, and hairspray. That’s it!

STEP 1: Tie your hair in a ponytail (If you want more volume then add some texture beforehand with your wand or straightener).

STEP 2: Grab a section and wrap it around the hair elastic (clockwise), securing with a bobby pin.

STEP 3: Grab another section and repeat. (We did 3 sections, the more sections the fuller the bun, and the reason why we did it in sections is to avoid the “ballerina bun” look 😉

STEP 4: Wrap the rest of the hair and secure with pins. If there are any loose hairs or strands just pin them down and spray some hairspray to prolong the look.
