1. Half bun hairstyle for long hair
Most girls just grab a portion of hair and twist it upwards, thinking that they have got the knack of creating a half bun. They could not be more wrong. Agreed that a half bun is super cool and easy to create, but it does involve a little bit of technique. Remember, there is a difference between messy and tacky. A messy half-bun still manages to look classy. A tacky one, not so much. For longer hair, the best way to create a half bun is by separating the top half of the hair and tying it into a ponytail. You can even give it volume by teasing some hair at the top. Now comb your ponytail in a way that it adds some height to the hair. Now use the loose hair and twist it around the elastic in a bun form. Secure it with pins and set with a spray.
2. Half bun hairstyle for short hair
If you thought that only long hair could sport a half bun hairstyle, you may be a tad wrong. Short to medium hair can flaunt it too, just with a little bit of care and precision. This can be done in a few simple steps. First, part your hair in two portions. Then take the top section of your hair and make a high ponytail. Secure it with a tie. Then create a small and cute bun around it. Follow with pins and hair spray.
3. Half bun hairstyle for fine hair
Fine hair needs volume. And fine hair on the second day after a hair wash, when you really do not have the time can be horrendous to deal with. They can make your whole style look really drab and dull, no matter how much effort you put into it. How to add some spunk to it? Well, start with a half bun, of course. First thing, get your curler into action. Create some loose waves and put on some hair spray to set those. Now that your fine hair has some much-needed volume, proceed with the bun. Backcomb your top half of the hair and twist up the portion to create a voluminous half bun. There, you transformed your entire look in a few minutes!
4. Half bun hairstyle for wavy hair
Wavy hair is voluminous by nature. So you do not have to worry about having a limp half bun on your hands. Creating half buns for wavy hair is pretty simple because you can skip a whole lot of steps. You already have the volume, and with that, you can have a gorgeous half bun at hand pretty quickly. Where you may face a crisis, is at maintaining it. Create a half bun using the top section and use a serum to tame the rest of the hair. You can use hair spray to ensure no flyaways mar your half bun. There, done!
5. Half bun hairstyle for curly hair
Again, like wavy hair, curly hair is high on volume. All you have to do is section your top half of the hair the right way so that you can create just the right half bun. But again, you have to have your tools and sprays handy to ensure your hair is in control. Twist the top section of your hair into a bun, by first securing the ponytail and then securing the bun around it with the help of bobby pins. Use hair spray for extra hold.
6. Half bun hairstyle for straight hair
If curly hair has the problem of your pins randomly spinning out of control, wait till you see straight hair. Straight and silky hair actually have the issue of pins and bands slipping out of control, leaving the hair open and untamed. For this, you need a texturising spray that needs to be used at the roots so that there is ample grip for the hair tie and the hair itself so that your bun stays where it is. There are times when gravity’s work isn’t that appealing and a slipping half bun is one of those moments.
7. Half bun hairstyle with extensions
Short hair? We have already told you how to make a half bun. But if you still wish to get the feel of long hair, use extensions. It is not that tricky to pull off. First, create a half bun using your own hair (don’t forget the hair tie at the base of the bun). Then, use the thin strips of your extensions to wrap more hair around the bun, giving it a thicker and more voluminous effect. There are many clip-on extensions available. Trust us when we say, extensions are not expensive, but can surely make your half bun look more expressive.
8. Half bun hairstyle for messy hair
Messy buns are cool and so are messy half buns. The best way to do a messy half bun is by creating a looped ponytail and keeping it a little loose. You can even tug out a few tendrils across your forehead for that relaxed look. Use pins and sprays to keep it neat wherever you want it.
9. Half bun hairstyle for twisted hair
A simple half bun hairstyle may get a little boring after a while. That’s when a twisted one comes in hot and handy. This is actually a knotted half bun and looks amazing. First, create a high ponytail and divide it into two halves, then loosely twist the ends and wrap the two parts into opposite directions around the base. Use pins to secure it.
Half bun hairstyle hack: How to cover the bare spots?
Now that you know some of the coolest half bun hairstyles, it’s time to also know a tip that may save you some embarrassment. Everyone has bald spots. Some get it with age and some due to external conditions or genetics. Bald spots do not look nice, especially when you are creating a half bun or even a full bun. Here’s how you can hide those bare spots.
- Use an eyeshadow that’s closest to your hair shade to cover the small spots
- For better effects, use a fluffy brush, maybe a blush brush to blend the shade
- You can even use spray-on hair colours to hide the spot
- Root concealer sprays are also quite handy
