Bun hairstyles are, apart from ponytails, the most practical and probably the easiest updo on the whole planet. They can also look really cute with the right styling techniques. A really great bun to try is low and pinned slightly to one side. This creates an a-symmetrical silhouette and works really well with a wavy or slightly curly texture.

The other beautiful thing about a hairstyle like this is that you can recreate it in ten minutes or less when you know how!

What you need:

Tail comb
Hair elastic
Bobby pins

Step one: Start by combing your hair through to remove any knots or tangles. This will make the styling process even easier!

Step two: Take a tail comb and define a side part. It doesn't have to be too perfect, just well-defined enough to get noticed.

Step three: Gather the hair back into a low ponytail. Before securing it with a hair elastic, pull it an inch or so to one side, then tie it loosely into place.

Step four: Tease the pony slightly with a comb and then twist and wrap it into a loose bun. Secure with as many bobby pins as you need – it all depends on how thick your hair is.

Step five: Tease a few strands loose at the front and sides to help frame your face and create a really romantic look. This will also help to show off a wavy or curly hair.

Step six: Mist your style with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold and you're done!
