The Figure-Eight Bun

The Giselle Bun

Tip: For a more traditional version, slick your hair and use extra bobby pins and a hairnet to flatten the bun against your head.

 











The Cinnamon Roll Bun

Tip: Elongate your neckline by placing this bun at the crown of your head. 

 










The French Twist

Tip: Don’t want the bump of a bun? Try this sleek look instead.
