Whether you’re rocking day three hair (or four or five), maybe it’s extra hot out or you’re just running late — sometimes you want to wear your hair up, and more often than not, you’re going to go for a low bun.
It’s really hard not to fall in love with the ease and versatility of a low bun. This classic updo is chic in appearance, quick to achieve, and able to flatter all types of hair for any occasion. Keep reading to see our list of 11 gorgeous low bun hairstyles and tips for how to achieve them.
1. Low Loop Bun
The loop bun proves to be an excellent update for the classic low bun, offering modern style with volume and bounce that takes seconds. When it’s time to create your bun, pull your hair into a low ponytail, next grab another hair tie and pull your hair into a ponytail but don’t pull the loop all the way through. The finished look should resemble a bouncy, half ponytail that loops into a bun.
Editor’s tip: The loop bun’s bouncy silhouette can complement straight hair and curly strands alike. If you have waves or curls, grab a curl enhancer like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse. Use this mousse on damp hair, scrunch, and let your hair air dry — now you’re on your way to enjoying your easy loop bun with gorgeous wavy texture and volume.
2. Sleek Low Bun
If you’re craving something minimal or trying to embody the social media trending clean girl aesthetic, you can’t beat the look of a sleek low bun. First, apply a hair serum, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In, to help smooth your strands. Then pull your hair into a tight ponytail at the nape of your neck. Follow up by twisting your strands and wrapping them around the base of your ponytail, securing it with bobby pins to create a sleek low bun.
Editor’s tip: Taming flyaways and baby hairs is a must to complement your sleek low bun. For flyaways, use a clean toothbrush and hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold, Light Hairspray Unscented to brush them in place. Use an edge brush and hair gel like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Mega Gel to lay your edges.
