Which bun hairstyle gets your vote?

There are so many ways you can wear a bun hairstyle, from intricate braided 'dos to gravity defying topknots. Two of the most wearable, however, are the messy bun and the smoother, classic take on the look. The question is, which approach to the style do you like best?

Messy bun

Both voluminous and textured, a messy bun will transform your bed head hair into a presentable look in no time. All you need to do is apply dry shampoo at the roots, leave it for a few minutes, then brush it out before throwing your hair up. You may find it easiest to tie your hair into a messy ponytail first, then loosely twist and pin the lengths into a bun.

Styling tip

When securing the bun, don't worry if there are some ends poking out here and there, they'll only enhance the disheveled texture!

Classic bun

A smoother, more polished take on the bun is perfect for anyone who likes their hairstyles neat and uncomplicated. Like the messier version, this bun is really easy to style. If you're starting with dry hair, straighten it first for the sleekest results, otherwise blow-dry your mane as straight as possible before putting it up. Just don't forget to apply a heat protectant!

Styling tip

To eliminate any flyaways, spritz your finished bun with plenty of hairspray, then mist your palms with some water and smooth them over the top and sides of your head.

What do you think? Which bun do you like best?
