The bun remains an elegant style for both work and play. However this season sees the traditional hairstyle being fused with two of the hottest hair trends: sleek wet look and mini braids. Which bun variation do you prefer?
Sleek Ballerina Bun
The style: This perfectly pinned ballerina bun sits just below the crown of the head. For extra points, set with a wet look product like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Shower Shine for an on-trend high shine finish.
The look: This simple ballerina bun is youthful and fresh - and the perfect finishing touch for almost any outfit, regardless of the occasion. The style is also extremely adaptable – all you do is alter the placement of the bun. Try wearing it low for a more vintage-inspired style or wear it a little undone up high for a rock 'n' roll feel.
The result: There is zero risk of a fashion faux pas when wearing this timeless hairstyle. For ladies with medium length to long hair, this hairstyle is easy to master and even easier to wear!
Braided Top Knot
The style: The standard top knot is given a point of difference with this look, thanks to the addition of three mini braids at the nape of the neck leading up into the bun. From the front, this look still appears like a classic top knot but from the back the braids peeking through add a surprising twist to the style.
The look: This hair 'do is deceptively girly. On the one hand, the traditional chignon gives off a more polished vibe. Meanwhile, the braids at the back add a little grunge to the overall look. Don't judge a book by its cover!
The result: This runway favourite is the must-try trend of the season. Once you've mastered your braiding technique, the braided bun is an easy way to change up your go-to top knot hairstyle.
