The Best Bun Hairstyles for Every Occasion

The Ballerina Bun

Sometimes the simplest hairstyles are the chicest. This ballerina bun is an easy way to look polished without adding lots of time to your morning routine. With a simple twist of your ponytail and a few bobby pins, youll be prepared for wherever your day takes you.

The Messy Bun

We love a good messy bunit looks just as stylish with sweatpants on a Sunday as it does with your weekday workwear. Once you get the hang of throwing your hair into this lazy-girl version of the ballerina, you'll be doing it with your eyes closed.

The Fishtail Side Bun

A low bun is effortlessly elegant, especially when it incorporates a feminine fishtail braid. Although it may look intricate, this textured side bun is an easy way to elevate your updo. Since it's slung to the side, we like to accessorize it, like with these gem bobby pins.

The Sock Bun

For us, this is the bun that started our obsession. By using a sock (or The Beachwaver Co. The WRAP UP rolled into a doughnut shape and a few bobby pins), this five-step style adds flattering shape and fullness to your run-of-the-mill topknot.

The Brunch Bun

Once you've mastered the trusty sock bun, try upgrading it to this braided version Birchboxers like to wear to brunch. Flip your hair upside down, French braid two thirds of the way up your head, and secure with an elastic before creating your sock bun as usual. Benedicts and Bloody Marys optional.
