HOW TO: EASY Bun Tutorial | Perfect for Work, Prom, Weddings


hey guys well back to my channel today I
wanted to share to you is this super simple yet beautiful modern chic Chignon
hair style I really wanted to share this hairstyle with you guys because I think
it’s so perfect for any special event especially prom or a wedding also think
it would be great for work and I know a lot of you aware these updos for a
church and I think that it’s absolutely perfect for that it’s literally three
simple steps you guys it’s going to work on all hair types and it’s perfect for
shoulder length hair or longer so let’s get started today I’m starting off with
straight hair I feel almost 70s when my hair is this straight but you can also
start off with wavy or curly hair you guys know how much I love that undone
look but today I’m going for a more modern chic appearance all you’re going
to need for this hair tutorial are one to two hair elastics depending on your
hair length you’ll see what I mean in a minute
and like always any good up do you need a bunch of bobby pins on hand to help
you pin into place so step number one to those hairstyles we’re going to create a
half a ponytail so the best thing to do part your hair is normal and just go to
the very back of your part draw a line straight down until you hit the middle
back of your ear and that’s going to be our first section and then you just want
to repeat the exact same process on the other side once you have your second
section you just want to join these two together at the back of your head with a
hair elastic you want to make sure that you only grabbed this sides and that in
between your two sections you still have all of the hair the back of your head
going straight down and your hair should look a little something like this from
the side so now step two what you’ll want to do is grab all of your hair and
secure it with that second hair elastic just below the needs of your neck this
is going to help with our next step to ensure that the hair stays together and
remains nice and smooth if your hair is shorter just secure all of your ends
together with that ponytail we just created we’re going to move it up and
over that first half a ponytail from step 1 as I’m looping it I’m going to gently
pull mine through the left side but it doesn’t matter which
side you choose once my ends are through I’m just gently looping the rest of the
ponytail and you want to guide it through slowly instead of just pulling
on it to help prevent the appearance of flyaways depending on your hair’s
lengths you could stop here and proceed to step three
but if your hair is longer we’re going to repeat the exact same process until
the ponytail is completely wrapped so one more time I’m just going to reach
through that loop that we created and I’m grabbing on to my ends and then with
my other hand I’m finding that first ponytail that we created and looping my
ends up and through and again pulling them out the left side now I have about four inches sticking
out the ends and all you have to do is tuck them in I’m going to grab the
entire bundle we’ve created and very slowly and gently tighten it up
I’m just working with the loop that we’ve created and pushing them up and
through that half a ponytail just a little bit more until everything is nice
and tight sitting where I want it take your time guiding it through remember
tighten it nice and slow to help prevent those flyaways from appearing if you
still see your hair elastic like mine don’t worry just place your fingers
below it on either side and gently pull and the elastic will slide up this
section and then we can tuck it away this also works as a great anchor point
when pinning later now step three is securely pin your bun into place since
we created loops it’s very easy to slide your fingers into these loops and place
as many bobby pins as you need in there I alternated sides and worked my way
towards the middle I try my best to create crosses with my pins inside my
loops just to make sure they are secured better and once you’re done it should
look a little something like this and I’m going to go ahead and take some
hairspray and I’m just going to spray it right on my fingers to help smooth away
any flyaways and those pesky neck hairs so there you have you guys that’s how
easy it is to do this modern Chignon hairstyle this hairstyle is perfect to
have in your back pocket so you can whip it out when you need a last-minute
hairstyle I love that it can be formal but it’s not too formal that you can
also dress it down but I hope you guys found this video helpful if you did

thought and where you would wear this hairstyle but thank you again you guys
for all of your support and I’ll talk to you guys in my next video bye

  1. Lovely on your gorgeous, thicker hair, but actually its called a "victory roll" popularized during WW11 and it was popular as well in the 20's when the bob was becoming fashionable, but some women weren't ready to cut their hair yet.

  4. Your video's is the easiest by far . Now that I have grown my hair longer this is the look I love . The other video's from different women are complicated and when I try it on myself , I end up in a huge tangled up mess and I am so frustrated !

  5. I really could've used this video for my brother's wedding last weekend. I would up twisting and pinning up my hair and was surprised that it came out looking really good. But had I done what you taught in this video, I would've been done so much faster. I've learned my lesson, I'm subscribing. 😊

  8. I am a female new executive with hair to my waist. I've watched hours of videos on up-dos for the office. Yours is the first one that looks professional and is actually something I can do myself. Thank you!
