If you are interested in making a bun hairstyle, there are a few ways that it can be done. A bun hairstyle can be achieved by pulling the hair away from the face by twisting it or making it into a circular coil. You can have a loose bun, a tight bun, or plaited one, or even a double bun like that of Sailor Moon, the animated character, or Princess Lea of Star Wars. Buns are created at the back of the head and can be placed in any area from above the ear line to the nape, depending on how long your hair is.
If you have long hair, it is possible to make a bun by twisting it, coiling it and tucking it to knot it. These kinds of buns will get out of style very easily. If you want to create a bun hairstyle that will last you for a good many hours, you would need to secure it by means of using hair accessories. The most common hair accessories are elastic bands and bobbie pins. Comb your hair, tie it in the area where you would like to place the bun, twist and coil the hair by holding it at the end, bring up and winding it around itself and secure the ends of the hair as near as possible to the hair roots near the elastic band with the use of the bobbie pins. You may need a number of bobby pins to have a secure bun and make it have a smooth and neat appearance.
The latest in hair accessories especially made to create a variety of hair styles including that of buns, eliminates the need to use bobby pins to secure the hold of the hairstyle. Two Spanish-style hair combs facing each other are connected by crisscrossed elastic bands. One comb is slid onto one side of the head and the other one is slid onto the other side to lock the hair into place. The variety of styles are achieved by placing the hair through the elastic bands or the hair can be twisted and placed underneath the elastic band to make a bun. These hair accessories are decorative, easy to use, will keep your hair in place for a long period of time, and allow you to create a number of hairstyles including that of putting your hair up in a bun.
