8 Simple Bun Hairstyles You Can Create Yourself

Slicked-Back Topknot

This high bun, a very refined variation on the topknot, is just class. For your topknot, try creating the base ponytail in two pieces, advises Rubenstein.

Big Bun

However bear in mind that you'll need second-day unclean hair and a little assistance from your reliable dry shampoo if you want this much fullness.

Super-Smooth Sock Bun

Have a black-tie event and need a quick (and creative) hairstyle? You need not search any more. To start, this style requires an extra-large sock bun or bun form.

Upside-Down Topknot

From the office to a weekend farmers' market excursion, this is a simple yet put together outfit.

Messy Bun

Then turn your head over, collect your hair into a high ponytail, and take out as many strands as you like to wrap into a bun the messier the better.

Topknot With Bangs

Those with bangs can still enjoy the festivities as they give the basic appearance a bit more. Brush your hair into a ponytail that rests at the highest point on the back of your head.

Tucked-In Chignon

After giving your hair a brush, collect it at the nape of your neck into a ponytail. Draw the ponytail into a bun and, like knotting, tuck the tail beneath the chignon.

Braided Bun

Apart from its chicness, this style looks much better on hair that hasn't been washed in a few days.
