This super-classy looking bun is another great pick if you have medium to long hair. The tousled bun not only looks great but also prevents the ends of your hair from coming into contact with the harsh coloured powder, thereby preventing any damage. Make sure that you let some hair out from the crown area, so as to add a bit of fun element to the hairdo.
