When you’re rushing to get ready in the morning so that you’re not late to class or work, you may entirely skip over doing anything to your hair. But what if we told you that there was a hairstyle that was both super-cute and could be created with minimal effort? We’re talking about the low bun. This low maintenance take on an updo is not only stylish, but it’s oh so easy. There’s more than one low bun hairstyle out there, which is why we’ve rounded up our favorites below. Keep reading for four low bun hairstyle tutorials, and make sure you stock your vanity with the products you need (like hair serum and hair spray) to keep your low bun hairstyle looking gorgeous all day long.
Nothing screams romantic hairstyle like a low bun that has some wave to it. Start this hairstyle the night before. After washing your hair, spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto damp hair, then let your hair air dry for added wavy texture. In the morning, it’s time to make your romantic low bun hairstyle. Separate your hair into three sections, creating a ponytail with the middle section. Roll the ponytail into a bun and secure it with a bobby pin. Then, separate the left section into two parts, twisting the inner section up and over your bun and the outer section underneath your bun, pinning in place. Repeat the same process with the right section of hair.
For a day at the office, you can’t beat a smooth and sleek low bun. First, brush your hair and create a tight low ponytail. Then, apply a hair serum, like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum, to help smooth your ends. Break the ponytail into two sections and secure the ends of each section with a clear mini elastic. Place a bobby pin vertically into the elastic and roll one section of your hair up, away from your face. Pin in place with another bobby pin and repeat on the other side of your hair. If your bun feels loose, add a couple more bobby pins. If you notice any flyaways, apply a small amount of hair cream as a finishing touch.
Classic hairstyles are classic for a reason—they’re always in style and flatter just about everyone. The classic low bun is a perfect example of this. Pull your hair into a low ponytail, leaving a section in the front of your hair loose. Secure the ponytail with a hair tie. Divide your ponytail into two sections, wrapping one around the base of the ponytail and disguising the hair tie. Tease the other section and tuck it under your ponytail, securing it with a bobby pin. With another bobby pin, secure the front section of your hair beneath your bun. Gently tug at the sides of your low bun and apply a quick spritz of a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray.
If you have natural hair, this messy low bun will look absolutely stunning on you, whether you’re out doing chores or have a party to attend. Take your hair and pull it over to one side, securing it into a loose ponytail with a hair tie. Leave the front section of your hair out. Pin the front section of your hair back with a bobby pin. Roll the ponytail up into a bun and secure it with a few bobby pins. Don’t worry if you have any flyaways—this is a messy low bun, after all! Use a teasing comb to add some volume on top, then finish by adding a headband for a glitzy touch.
