How to Do Quick and Easy Top Bun

How To: Quick and Easy Top Bun

So i’m doing something unusual today… Hair tutorial! A simple top bun that you can basically wear wherever and whenever you want. It’s so simple yet cute. Also, please excuse my hair color, it’s been dyed and bleached for a couple of times, i know it’s bad, but i really love changing my hair color. My previous one is actually a really light burgundy brown (sometimes it looked ginger under a bright light), but when i dyed it back to black for some reason the dye isn’t so good that it actually wears off in most places in a week! I haven’t got the time to dye it again. So if you see any discoloration or anything it’s because of that. But it doesn’t bother me that much considering i kinda like color, i don’t want my hair to be too black.

Tips: Works best with 2nd day hair (or 3rd!)

Here’s what you’ll need:

hair bow and donut

  • Hair ‘Donut’ – This is a must! I don’t know what to call it, i got it from H&M for only a dollar or two!
  • Hair Ties/Elastics
  • Hair Bow (Optional)
  • Bobby Pins (I forgot to include it in the picture!)

Step 1: Untangle your hair and brush it down. Tie your hair in a high pony tail (right above your head). Make sure you use 2 elastics, to make it real tight.
