Bun hairstyles can be extremely classy especially when you choose the right outfit and accessories to match your hairstyle. Who could forget the iconic Audrey Hepburn with her little black dress, pearl necklace and that chic bun of hers in the timeless Breakfast at Tiffany's? So, to make sure you're always prepared to reinvent your look, we've put together a selection of four fab bun hairstyles you can easily turn towards for inspiration!
Lovely Bun Hairstyles
Messy Bun Hairstyles
This is a lovely hairstyle that's very easy to do and is just perfect for a day at the office, a casual outing with your girlfriends or even when cleaning your house. Either way, you'll look lovely rocking your messy low or high bun.
Bun Hairstyles: French Braid Bun
This is one of the most beautiful and classy braided bun hairstyles. It's super cute and you can wear it to a special event, such as a party or even a wedding reception. In order to get the look, you'll need to brush your hair and then split it into 3 parts. Then, start braiding diagonally across your head. Once you finish, you should secure the braid with a hair tie. Afterwards, roll your French braid so that you make a low bun and secure it with bobby pins. Keep in mind that in order to pull off this hairstyle your hair length needs to be passed the shoulders. If you don't have the necessary length pull the hair into a high ponytail and secure it. Then braid the ponytail, wrap the braid around its base and secure the ends with a bobby pin.
Side Bun Hairstyles: Side Chignon
We also fell in love with this beautiful side updo. It's the perfect hairstyle for a date night, a lunch with your best friends or a business meeting. You can easily recreate this hairstyle by parting your hair and choosing where to have your chignon styled. Then, pull your hair to one side (right or left, the choice is yours) and make two ponytails. Tie your hair into a knot and wrap one of the ponytails to the right and secure it with a pin, then do the opposite with the remaining hair. In the end, finish your side chignon with a medium hold hairspray such as Hair Stay Medium Hold Spray ($17).

Low Bun Hairstyles
We simply loved Rachel Weisz flaunting this classy low bun hairstyle. Plus, it can easily be done at home! Before starting recreating this updo hairstyle, we suggest spraying some protectant spray on your locks like Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray ($25) and only afterwards start blow drying your hair. Then, brush your hair and create a low ponytail that you can secure with a hairband that matches your hair color. Afterwards, add some hair gel to hold your ponytail together and start rolling the hair (inwards) until it reaches its base. In the end, secure the hair roll with bobby pins and add some shine gel for a glossy look.
