Steps to Make the Sophisticated Side Bun

  1. Start with getting some curls. If you are blessed with some, it’s great, else use a curling iron or just sleep with your hair tied up in a loose plait.
  2. The next morning, backcomb the hair on your crown to add more volume.
  3. Move all hair on to one side and hold it in a pony.
  4. Wrap the hair in a doughnut pattern, using pins underneath to hold it in place. Use as many pins as you think you’ll need. You wouldn’t want the hairdo to come loose while you’re in the middle of an event.
  5. Accessorise your hair with a decorative pin or hair jewellery.

If you’re looking for a quick, no-mess, and yet glamorous hairstyle, how about donning the timeless classic bun?

Creating the doughnut bun

  1. Detangle your hair using a comb. Then, backcomb the hair on your crown to add volume.
  2. Pull the hair together to tie a pony in the middle of your head, not too low, nor too high. Don’t make it too tight or you’ll break hair and also be uncomfortable all the time.
  3. Take the loose portion of your hair and loop it back through the pony holder to form a doughnut. Spread the remaining hair all over and around the doughnut. Use plenty of pins to secure it in place.
  4. You can use flowers on one side to decorate the bun or wrap a gajra around the bun for a classic look
