Other Bun Hairstyles to Try
Aside from the big top knot, here are other ways you can play with bun hairstyles.
1. Ballerina bun
2. Baby bun
If you have a medium bob or a lob, the baby bun is perfect for you. Just like the big top knot, the baby bun can give you a chic, model-off-duty vibe, especially when you let loose strands frame your face.
3. Top bun for curly hair
Dealing with unruly curly hair? Put your strands in place with this chic top bun. The good thing about having curly hair is that your hair is already gifted with volume, so your bun hairstyle looks thick even with minimal effort.
4. Top bun with headband
5. Half up top knot
Aside from the baby bun, the half up top knot is another bun hairstyle you can do on short hair. This hairstyle is a versatile look as well—you can wear it on weekends or at work together with your corporate-chic outfit.
