4 Perfect Buns For Fall

4 Perfect Buns For Fall

Though a bun seems like a simple and classic hairstyle, there are actually so many versatile ways to wear it. Especially now, while we are all adding weight to our faces with the mask, a style that keeps the hair back is crucial. Plus, it works with virtually any hair texture and length (provided that it is long enough to slip into an elastic) and pairs seamlessly with the scarves and blazers of fall fashion.

With a variety of options and renditions available, you can be sure that there’s a bun that works perfectly for you and your personal style.To help you out, we’ve put together a list of our favorite types of buns for you to try out on yourself, complete with the tips and tricks necessary to ace the look.

Low Bun

Low Bun

A low bun is a fashion-forward look that is perfect for the office or a dinner date. It’s sexy and sleek without being completely over the top. The key to mastering a low bun is to make sure the bun itself will not weigh down the style. In other words, you want a tiny bit of volume in your crown and framing your face. We’d suggest blowing your hair out before securing your bun in an elastic.

You can spritz some root lift spray before you use your dryer, giving your roots even more bounce. Smooth your crown with a brush and create your bun. You can do this easily by looping it around a ponytail at the base of your neck and securing with bobby pins. Slightly tug at the hair surrounding your face to give your tresses that gently tousled look. This bun works well with blazers, jackets, lightweight scarves, and anything with a collar.

Messy

The messy bun tends to be a source of frustration for many who attempt it. It’s a style that should be one of the easiest, but somehow those messy buns we try at home don’t come out like the ones we see on the Instagram models. Either it’s way toomessy, looks lopsided, or the hair on our crown won’t stay put. The secret to nailing the messy bun is dry shampoo.

The added texture will give your tresses the hold it needs to keep messy from looking chaotic. If you need some extra help, you can always mask any mishaps or frizz around your crown with a touch of hairspray and a headband. A headband will keep your crown looking styled without compromising the intentional disarray of the bun. If you are wearing a headband, keep your outfit simple. A cardigan or denim jacket is preferred.

With Tendrils

High-set buns with tendrils are extremely popular right now. Though they had a moment earlier in the summer, the iconic WAPmusic video with Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion solidified the look for fall. Tendrils complement any sort of bun because they are a face-framing tool that adds dimension to a bun.

On round, square, and heart-shaped faces, tendrils are recommended with the bun as they add an elongating effect, which is very flattering. When adding tendrils to the bun, make sure to set them aside rather than tugging them out of a secured bun or elastic. Keeping them separated will ensure that they remain smooth and won’t ruin your perfectly styled bun. You can also straighten them with a styler for added chicness. 

Top Knot

An effortless top knot is a go-to off-duty model look. It’s easy to create and very trendy for fall. Keep those locks entirely out of your face with a flattering top knot. The reason why it looks so great on everyone is because the bun itself is visible from the front.

The length of the hair doesn’t disappear; it just sits neatly on top. Create your top knot by looping your hair into a high ponytail. Then, wrap the length around the elastic and secure with pins. The challenge lies in getting the hair around your crown to stay smooth. This can be easily achieved with some styling gel. Slick back flyaways with a touch of gel and spray your knot with a light-hold hairspray, so it doesn’t move. The bun will draw your eyes upwards, so a patterned top helps add balance to the final look.
