The Basic Bun Hair Style

This hair style requires shoulder-length or longer hair.

The Basic Bun is a classic hairstyle appropriate for any occasion.


Make a basic loose ponytail.

You may use an elastic band to secure the ponytail, if desired.

Twist the entire length of the ponytail.

Coil the twist around itself, to begin creating the bun.

You may dampen your hair in order to help keep shorter pieces from popping out.

Tuck the end under the outside coil. Hold the bun in place with one hand and using the other hand, push one hairstick straight into the outside coil until the tip touches your head.

Change the direction of the stick and weave it up and out the other side of the coil.

Use a second hairstick, poked through the bun in the same way but from the other side, so that the sticks make an X. This will hold the bun securely in place.

Alternate Style: The Half Bun and The Double Bun:

To create the Half Bun hairstyle, take half the hair and make a basic ponytail. As an option, you may use an elastic band to secure the ponytail.

Continue with steps 2 through 7, above. Smaller buns will require only one stick to secure the hairstyle. A second stick is optional for decoration only.

When creating The Double Bun, use the extra hair to form a second ponytail and continue with steps 2 through 7, above.
