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 ‘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.
Step 2: Slip in the donut.
Step 3: Bring your hair to the front and spread it around the donut to create the bun. Make sure you cover the donut!
Step 4: Tie it with another elastic. Now you can already see the bun!
Step 5: Wrap the excess hair around the bun and secure it with a bobby pins. You can be as messy as you want, just get creative!
Step 6: This is optional. If you want to add an extra cuteness, feel free to add any hair bow, hair clip or any accessories you’d like.
If you’re running late to school or work, this is the perfect hairdo for you. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to do it!
