Low, chignon buns are perfect for longer hair lengths that need to be styled in a voluminous ‘do. Adding a scarf to the bun will give it more character, and help keep it in place for long hours. Brightly printed and tie-dye scars are trending at the moment, but you can pick any piece of fabric you want. If a scarf feels too *extra*, replace it with a ribbon and call it a day!

While chignon buns are usually quick to put together, some versions can be elevated to be a bit dressier. Sleek and secured in neat twists in the bottom, this hair look can be recreated for essential meeting days.

Another stylish bun for long-haired girls, braided buns are one of the best protective hairstyles out there. The braids add a lot of texture to the bun while keeping the hairdo looking smart and professional. Use a dollop of leave-in conditioner to prep your hair for this look. It will make the bun look smooth and shiny all day long.
