Hair Tutorials: The Simple Side Bun
Mar 22, 2012
On Tuesday, I featured the sock bun. But the truth is, that I’ve never worn a sock bun. I prefer to create my buns with something I call the roll-and-pin method. I searched like a mad women for a tutorial, and I was just about to give up my quest, when I spotted this side bun tutorial.
This tutorial from the EBeautyBlog will teach you how to create a bun the way I do. Once you get the hang of it, you can use this tutorial to quickly create simple, stylish buns. This method also works on almost any length hair since I’ve been using since my hair was above my shoulders.
I use it all the time. In fact, I’m wearing a low, pinned bun right now.
If you really want to jazz it up, I often wear my hair in a twisted updo like the one found in this tutorial. But instead of doing the twisted bun in the back, I style my hair into a pinned bun by pulling the two twisted sections into a simple ponytail. For me the twisted bun looks best if my hair is a bit wavy, the creator of the tutorial prefers to go with the wet look. To each, her own.
These are both great hairstyles for rainy, humid days when nothing you do will make it possible for you to wear your hair down and have it look great. Moisture in the air is simply, a coif killer.
