Ready, Set, Bun! 15 Stunning Bun Hairstyles You Can Do Quickly And Easily

hairstyles-with-a-bun

The bun hairstyle has since proven to be timeless. Every season, there is a new bun look added to the mix – one even more beautiful than the last adaptation. Buns are so loved because they are mostly easy to style and can be worn everywhere and for everything – from parties to workouts to the office, you name it! 

Because bun hairstyles are relatively easy to do, they afford you the opportunity to avert a bad hair day when you don’t have the time to visit the salon. Plus, you don’t have to be super technical or creative with them. More often than not, all you need is a hairstyle inspiration, a few minutes and a handful of tools to get your slay on. Of course, as is the case with most of our suggestions, easy doesn’t mean boring. That is to say, whether you spend 10 minutes or 30 minutes, you’ll still look as put-together as the lady who spent hours at the salon! Sounds like music, doesn’t it?  

Other than with your natural hair, you may also decide to do a quick bun with your hair extension which is equally amazing. From braids, to locs, and even weave extensions, this hairdo will work just as well. Think of it as an easy way to add a refreshing switch to your current look.
