3 Fresh Ways to Update Your Bun

Accessories make the look!

Are you one of those gals that can’t seem to quit wearing your hair in a bun? We feel you. This classic top knot hairstyle is simple and extremely versatile which gives us very little reason to want to wear any other style. However, we all have those days when wearing the same style every day becomes a little boring. Thanks to accessories, we’re presented with a variety of ways we can update our look to make it feel brand new. Below, we’re highlighting three of our most favorite ways to update your bun hairstyle:

Update Your Bun: 3 Styles To Try

Coolest way to sport an updo these days.

1. Use a bandana.

Our go-to accessory these days is the bandana. You can update your bun or just about any hairstyle with this scarf. Use a bandana to elevate the look of your bun and to match your outfit. We especially love this look for hot summer days as the bandana is great for absorbing sweat.

2. Add a hair charm to your bun.

A little accessory can make a big impact. This simple hair charm adds the perfect highlight to your top knot style. Wear this look with a sleek updo for fancy occasions. If you need help taming your hairline and laying cowlicks down, use Bed Head by TIGI Stick to help you keep your look under control.

3. Use flowers to create a girly look.

For special occasions, you can use floral accessories to update your bun. This is a great alternative if you’re not really into flower crowns. If you feel that you need to downplay the girly look of this hairstyle, texture is your friend. Use a salt spray like TRESemmé One Step Volume 5-in-1 Volumizing Mist to enhance the texture of your style to give it more of a lived-in feel and set with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1.
