Few hairstyles can pass as practical and cute like a bun can. Looking to switch up your ordinary top knot? Try the half bun. Celebs have taken to the trend and proven that the look is just as perfect for daytime as it is for a red carpet event. You can make a half bun work for any occasion and any hair type or length.
MASTER THE HALF BUN FOR YOUR HAIR LENGTH:
1. If you have long hair: (1) First, separate the top half of your hair from the bottom half, securing it with a hair tie. Make sure the ponytail is tight. (2) Go back and gently tug on the hair on top if you need to make it look more voluminous. (3) Then, tease the tail slightly near the base of the elastic (this will give your bun a fuller look) and (4) twist it around the base. (5) Secure the bun with a few bobby pins and (6) finish by adjusting it to the shape that you want.
2. If you have short hair: That lob you just got might be more difficult to put in a bun, but it’s still doable. Create two parts in your hair in line with your temples. Use the section of hair from your hairline to the crown of your head to create a high ponytail. After you secure your hair with an elastic band, pin small sections of the ponytail around the hair tie to cover it, creating your baby bun.
