Pretty low bun hairstyle ideas

Find gorgeous ways to kick your low bun hairstyle up a notch!

On a scale of hair-down to top-knot, how chill are you today? If your answer is “low bun,” let us give you a high five (because you are pretty chill, girl!) and a couple of hairstyle ideas to actually match your mood!

Low bun hairstyles are the best when you want something a little more put-together than a low ponytail but are not in the mood for an intricate updo. They’re relaxed but not lazy, pretty but not frilly. Well of course, as the low bun is a super versatile style, it can be adjusted to suit your taste (and the level of your chillness, too!), but it’s generally the best hairstyle compromise, allowing you to enjoy a “just right” vibe.

Going back to those ideas, here are looks we love.

5 Cute ways to style your low bun

1. With cornrow braids

Pair your low bun with a headful of cornrows for a cool, sassy vibe. This style is also great if you hate constantly having hair in your face. It’s a super neat look that will allow you to go about your day looking chic, but without the unnecessary hairstraction.

2. Loose & messy

A loose and messy low bun leans toward the more laidback end of the spectrum, but it still has more character and style than a plain low ponytail. To get the perfect texture, use TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray and scrunch your hair before carelessly putting it into a low bun. The product will also keep your hair tie from slipping, so yay!

3. With a ribbon

It’s interesting how a single strand of ribbon can spruce up a simple hairstyle instantly. If you’re sporting a basic ‘do like this low bun, adding a few accents can totally up your hair game. Wear it like a headband, like in the photo, or tie it around the bun itself and create a bow for a more feminine look.

4. Braided & rolled

This one is a bit more fancy, making it a really pretty option for special occasions like weddings, prom, dates, and other formal events. A braid-bun combination will always that irresistible charm and this look is a pretty good example!

TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray

Editor’s tip: This type of bun is a bit loose so it gets undone easily. To make sure your roll stays in place, give it a good spritz of TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray.

5. All the way down there

Go extra low and create your bun with its end going a bit past your shoulders. This is a pretty laidback look that’s chic enough to wear to casual parties. To add a little bit of zing to this simple ‘do, make sure you have sleek, straight, frizz-free hair. Gloss will be your accessory for this look, so wash with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner to make hair straight and beautiful, with no frizz or flyaways, and apply a pump of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops for added shine.

Low bun hairstyles are definitely a winner, but in case you want to switch it up with other bun versions, you can check out the different kinds you can experiment with, here!
