Regardless of your age, style or even hair texture, low-bun hairstyles are a classic way to refine your look for a formal occasion. There are many ways in which to customise this look and make it uniquely your own – whether that involves leaving some hair loose at the front, using hair accessories or even braiding the hair for a bohemian look. If you’re into low-bun hairstyles but don’t know how to go about it, take a peek at our four trendy styles which you can try out yourself.
With a fringe
If you have a fringe, don’t fret! This style could also work for you, since the shorter layers will frame your face at the front (while the classic low-bun is sitting at the back). The thicker the fringe, the better – but if you want to create a bohemian look, simply part hair into two and create volume at the roots just like Selena.
We always hear about a top-knot hairstyle, but never a low-knot! Comb hair back and create a tight and clean knot which will sit at the nape of the neck. Be sure to straighten your hair if you want an extra sleek-look which will seem like you just walked off the runway!
This one is for all the curly haired girls out there – you can also wear this look without straightening your locks! Taylor Swift is the perfect example of nailing this look because her natural curls still make the bun look soft and gentle – regardless of the event.
Bouffant with low bun
You don’t have to be a supermodel to create this signature look which is true to 1960s style. Create some drama at the roots by backcombing a few strands before securing into place with holding spray. Then carefully pin thin strands of hair around your bun – this will create a unique style which was so prominent in Dolce and Gabbana’s SS 13/14 show.
