One of the most effortless, classic and chic hairstyles is a messy bun. This messy bun hairstyle can be worn on both western and Indian outfits, suitable for all types of events. This is one of the popular traditional bun hairstyles for saree.  

How to Create the Look 

  • Messy buns work best on hair with texture. Create some loose curls with a curling iron and add some texturizing spray for volume and hold. 

  • Gather the hair into a low or a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic, depending on your preference. Leave some strands for face framing. 

  • Take the loose ends of your hair and wrap them around the base of the ponytail. You do not have to make it perfect. Use bobby pins to secure the bun. 

  • Gently tug the bun and some strands to make it look effortless and more voluminous. The goal is to achieve a relaxed and tousled appearance. 

2. Elegant Low Bun

An elegant low bun hairstyle is timeless and sophisticated that complements various outfits and occasions. The key to achieving an elegant low bun is to create a smooth and sleek finish with a neat appearance. 

How to Create the Look 

  • Start with hair prep by using an anti-frizz product to help manage flyaways and to achieve a smooth look. We suggest using Tresemme Keratin Smooth Serum for visibly smoother and shinier hair. Infused with Camellia oil, known to tame frizziness, makes your hair more manageable and adds long-lasting vibrancy and shine. 

  • After smoothening out the hair, gather the hair at the nape of the neck and tightly secure it with an elastic. 

  • Take the ponytail and twist it gently to create a coil. You can even divide the hair into two sections and create a textured yet sleek bun.  

  • Add some hairspray to tame any flyaways and achieve a sleek finish. Accessorise with delicate hairpins, flowers or pearls to enhance the elegance of the bun hairstyle. 

3. Top Knot

A top knot bun sits high on the crown and is a popular choice for an elegant and trendy look. A stylish top knot is perfect for a variety of occasions, from running errands to dressing up for a special event. 

How to Create the Look 

  • Add some texturizing spray or dry shampoo if your hair is freshly washed and too slippery.  

  • Flip your head forward and gather your hair to create a high ponytail. Once your hair is gathered, use a hairband and secure it in place. 

  • Take the ponytail and twist it around its base, forming a bun shape. Secure it with bobby pins. 

  • Gently tug on the bun’s sides and edges to adjust the shape and make it look fuller. 

4. Twisted and Braided Buns

A twisted and braided bun is a beautiful and intricate hairstyle that combines the elements of braiding and bun-making. A braided bun adds an interesting twist to a classic bun hairstyle. 

How to Create the Look 

  • Add texture to your hair by creating loose waves using a flat iron or a curling iron. To avoid heat damage, protect your hair with a heat protectant serum. We suggest using Tresemme Gloss Ultimate Hair Serum. This serum is infused with vitamin E and a blend of three powerful oils – nourishing coconut oil, conditioning macadamia oil and moisturising sunflower seed oil. It also protects the hair from heat damage up to 230˚ C. 

  • Create a middle or a side partition, as per your preference. Start braiding one side of the section. You can create a French or a reverse Dutch braid all the way through. 

  • Gently back comb the crown area for some volume. Leaving a few face-framing strands, gather all the hair at the nape of your neck. Tie the ponytail along with the braid with an elastic and secure it.  

  • Divide the ponytail into two sections. Twist each section and wrap it around the base of the ponytail. Secure it with bobby pins.  

5. Bun with Bangs

A bun with bangs is a fun and edgy hairstyle. The hairstyle creates a beautiful contrast between the sleekness of the bun and the softness of the bangs. 

How to Create the Look 

  • If you have natural bangs, style them by either straightening or blow drying them for some volume and neatness.  

  • Gather the rest of your hair, excluding the bangs, into a ponytail at the back of your head. You can position the ponytail where you want the bun to sit. 

  • Create a bun by twisting the ponytail and secure it with bobby pins.
