Many of us can agree that a hair bun is amongst one of the easiest protective styles you can do. It is simple with a jazzy flair, but can otherwise be boring if you don’t add a unique spin to it. Here is a collection of styles to get your creative mind going for you next set of hair buns on natural hair.
THE FRENCH BRAID-BUN COMBO
First one up is this french braided bun gorgeous updo. This bun style would be perfect for a night out on the town or even an everyday look. To start off, you split your hair in even sections (top and bottom). Then you braid up from the back of your head and work your way to the ends of your bottom section. If you have long hair, you will have plenty of hair leftover to complete the bun on top. If your hair is on the shorter end you can opt to use Marley hair to give your hair bun some fullness. Next combine your front and bottom sections and secure with an elastic band. Two strand twist the rest of your hair down to the ends and then wrap it in a circle around the crown of your head and pin into place.
