The festive bun hairstyles are also very practical
Is a chignon a bun?
You may also have heard the French word chignon, which sounds a bit fancy and interesting, but simply means a bun that’s loosely knotted or wrapped. So chignon is the French word for bun. It is an abbreviated term derived from the phrase chignon du cou originates, which means bun in the neck.
Are bun hairstyles good for your hair?
For many people, ponytails and buns are the most popular hairstyles. Some experts advise against wearing a ponytail or bun that is too tight as it can damage the hairline and lower hair section. All of these areas are prone to hair breakage.
Style hair in a low bun
What is the difference between a chignon and a bun?
A bun is constantly being wrapped around itself, whether it’s braided or simply twisted around a center. While the term chignon literally means a low bun, it is more synonymous with formality and vintage elegance, and also denotes the updos that are not bun hairstyles.
Different bun hairstyles to imitate
For a wedding, bridal shower, or upscale birthday party, give the wrap bun a try. Divide your hair into three sections and make the bun with the middle hair. When you’re done, wrap each of the side strands over and around the bun so that the hair band is no longer visible.
Simple but very effective
If you’re a woman with long hair who doesn’t always know how to deal with the lots of hair, the braided bun may be your new favorite. Start with two loosely braided pigtails secured with clear elastics and wrap the two around each other before pinning them into a bun. Just make sure the loose ends aren’t showing!
Braid and tie hair
Bun hairstyle with fishtail–Braid
Here’s another look for ladies who have too much hair to just put it up in a bun. Try a fishtail braid by braiding the braid at the nape of your neck and then securing it with a hair tie that doesn’t show. Then, wrap the braid into a bun and pin it in place. Distribute the braid as you like and slather the finished product with a layer of hairspray.
A simple bun hairstyle for special occasions
For a party or brunch, we love the look of a very casual bun. There are different ways to use a ponytail as a starting point for your bun, but the first steps are always the same no matter what the bun hairstyle looks like in the end. Form a ponytail and use your finger to pull it down through the hair just above the hair band.
A casual look for everyday wear
If you’re looking for a way to keep your hair out of your face while shopping or out on the town, the bun is for you. Gather your hair into a loose ponytail that you hold in one hand. Starting from the ends, roll the hair up as tightly as possible and pin it in place.
Casual and yet very chic
Knotted bun hairstyle
Here’s another incredibly easy hairstyle for a night out, a casual wedding, or a dinner with friends that goes particularly well with straight-haired ladies. Style your hair in a low ponytail. After securing your ponytail, divide it into two sections and tie them in a simple knot. Then tie a second knot – assuming you have enough length for it. Pin the ends of the ponytail together, form a bun and pin your hair in place. You can loosen the knot for a particularly casual look.
Even celebrities go for this low-key look
