An easy high bun is a great time-saving hairstyle to master. Whether you have long hair or short hair, this hairstyle will give you a perfect full bun.
We love knowing how to do a high bun because it works for casual and fancier occasions — whether you have to go to a wedding, a girl’s night out, a weekend braai or just to work, this is a low-effort high-return kind of hairstyle. And best of all, it works really well on hair that hasn’t been freshly washed — so save it for days when your hair is slightly dirty and you can’t face washing it.
Here’s how to do a high bun in 4 easy steps
Step 1: Brush your hair up into a high ponytail and secure with a band.
Step 2: Put a doughnut ring on the base of your ponytail and start to backcomb the roots to create thick, poufy hair and a soft texture. You can buy tiny bun rings to make this high bun work for shorter hair, too.
Step 3: Twist your ponytail and wind it around the bun ring. If your hair is shorter, place smaller sections over the sides of the ring and hold in place with grips.
Step 4: Finish by using grips to secure your hair — and don’t worry about being too precise, this style looks great when it’s a bit messy and windswept!
