Buns for short hair

It may seem that those who have healthy short hair will not be granted the same styling options as those with healthy locks of longer hair. There are a lot of horsetails, braids, and other styles that are designed only with a long-haired girl in mind. However, if want to swing stylish buns for short hair, the answer is in the styles below.

1. Side Bun

This is a very popular bun style for short hair. To get this look at home, comb your hair in a streak to one side and pick up all the hair on one side. Tie up the hair just above the ear. Now wind up all the hair like a bun, keeping it low. If you have bangs, let them flow loose. Just make sure the bun is on the same side as the bangs.

2. Messy Back Bun

This is one of the most simple buns for short hair that can be easily made at home, and can be achieved in a rush. Gather all your hair in the back as if it were a ponytail and tie it in a bun, leaving a little loose at the bottom and letting the ends hang out of the bun. The idea is not to make it too tight. Leave your sides and bangs loose.

3. Lower Collar Bun

This is a very elegant look that will go great with shoulders, halters, backless, low-backed dresses, and regular dresses. It is also a great look for an elegant party with your friends. Comb your hair back and collect all of it close to the nape of the neck. At the back, take the little hair to your left side and make a small bow. Tie the hair in the center and leave the length from the mid-bottom very loose. Now pick up the loose hair and pin onto your hair with a stylish brooch or a flowery accessory clip.

4. Braided side bun

This is an easy hairstyle that can be done in a few minutes. Gather all your hair to one side and make a braid at the back. Once done, secure tightly with a rubber band. Now take the braid, roll as you would roll your hair during a bun and secure at the nape.

5. Top Knot

This is an eternal favorite in the summer, especially if you are always on the go. Comb your hair neatly and bunch it up on top of the head. Stretch all hair in a tight bun and secure tightly with a rubber band. Since this look is quite simple, be sure to add a touch of color to the face and use some simple accessories, otherwise it may look a bit scruffy.

6. Ballerina Bun

Want something different than just a top knot? Then dancer’s buns for short hair are a great way to add a little style and fun. Comb your hair and separate the top and bottom into sections. Your hair should now be divided into a top and a bottom section. Take the top to make a tight messy bun at the top rear. Now make small sections of hair left over at the bottom back. Turn up and pin on the bottom of your bun.

7. Side Pinned Bun

This is one of the simple, yet classy buns for short hair. To get this look at home, comb your hair loose, letting your natural waves show. If you have bangs on the front or side, you’ll like to keep them loose for this style. Remove all the hair on one side and slightly roll, keeping the bun low preferably on the back of the ear. This time it depends on your comfort. If you feel it is rather lose, you can lightly attach it, adding a beautiful accessory on top.

8. Messy Loose Bun

Comb your hair, letting your waves occupy a central place. Gather all your hair very freely upwards and tie it in a loose bun in the center of the back of your head.
