Hair Buns for Long Hair

Buns are a classic, easy way to make it look like you put way more effort and time into your hair style than you did. We’ve come up with a few ideas for a new take on the traditional ballerina bun — check out these ideas for interesting hair buns for long hair.

Low Bun

While the top knot has long been on the hair bun scene, the low bun is finally giving it some competition. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck and put a spin on it from there — make it messy, to the side, or curl it and loosely pin it up for a sexy look. 

Braid It, Then Bun It

Begin by braiding your hair French braid style and close to the head. Once you’ve got a decent length, wrap the rest of your hair into a bun — high, low, middle, anything works.

Flower Power

For one of the boho-chic hair buns for long hair, gather your hair into a bun and accent it with a silk flower. Depending on what look you’re going for and how much attention you’re trying to attract, either go for a small spray of flowers or a big, exotic bloom.
