: Wise advice. Iím still having trouble making a bun. Did you learn by yourself by watching a video or just experimenting? Or was there someone there in person to show you how? My hair is now back to almost the longest itís been and I NEED to learn how to make a bun. Braiding came quite easily to me but for whatever reason, buns are difficult for me. Iíve tried watching videos but at least for the ones Iíve seen, they havenít helped.
Twisty buns are probably the easiest. Others like doing sock buns.
For a simple twisty bun, you start by pulling your hair together at the nape of the neck. Start twisting your hair clockwise, like a rope, keep twisting as you work down the length of your hair. When you reach the end, continue to twist tightly, and you will feel your hair start to wrap around at the nape. Just continue wrapping in a circle, tuck the ends underneath the bun, secure with hair pins, one or two nice hair picks, whatever suits you. Pulling out the pics/pins, should release your hair naturally, it will untwist itself and fall freely. Run your fingers through to smooth it out.
This is the kind of bun Jared Leto often wore, and what Casey Affleck wore for the Oscars. You could practice while watching a movie or TV show, or other activity where your hands are free to mess around with your hair. It's hard too explain it, once you start twisting, it'll come to you what I'm explaining. Twisty buns are the quickest & easiest, and they can be messy (Casey Affleck at the Oscars) or slick & neat (Jared Leto - everywhere he wears one, if he's not wearing a sock bun instead).
