Easy Bun Hairstyle For Short Hair

1. Half Bun Hairstyle

To get a half bun hairstyle for short hair, start by combing your hair into two parts, in line with your temples. Next, gather the top section of your locks into a ponytail. Once you secure your hair with an elastic band, jot small sections of the ponytail around the hairband to cover it, creating a tiny bun.

2. Space Buns

Ready to become Princess Leia? To create a space bun, pull the upper portion of your locks into a half updo. You can also separate your hair into two sections and pin your hair up into two space buns. To make sure that your locks are secured and styled properly, you can consider including braids into your space buns.

3. Boho Double Knot

You must begin by parting your locks into four equal sections (two on the front and two on the back). Then, take a section from the back and coil it to create a bun. Repeat the same with the other section at the back. Lastly, pull each front section toward the back bun so that it drapes over your ears. Voila, you’re all set to flaunt your boho double knot.

4. High Bun

The high bun hairstyle for short hair is the easiest updo to pull off. Firstly, gather your hair into a high ponytail, then twist it to create a bun by wrapping the hair around itself. Secure your high bun with an elastic band and bobby pins.

To create a twisted updo bun, you can start by using the Godrej Professional Hold It Hair Spray to set your hair and achieve a long-lasting hold.

Then, unclip the top section and create a side partition. Coil the top right side and wrap it around your bun. Continue wrapping and pinning the section to form a twisted updo bun.

11. Braided Bun

12. Loop Bun

Secure your hair at the nape of your neck and use an elastic hairband to hold them tightly in place. Now, loop the ends of your hair once more (only halfway) through the elastic. Wrap the excess hair around the base and secure them with a bobby pin.
