How To: Half Up, Half Down Bun Hairstyle
With my length of hair, I can never find any YouTube hairstyle tutorials to suit - apart from the usual milkmaid braid (which leaves me looking like Alexa from 50 First Dates) or a fishtail plait (which I'm simply too lazy to attempt). This is why I tend to create my own, or adapt hairstyles that I see on other people.
I saw a version of this half up, half down bun worn by a girl on Instagram; although she had much shorter hair than mine, I thought that it could look quite interesting if I added something extra to the bottom half of my hair. Firstly, I created the bun with a little volume on top, then decided to curl the rest, creating depth and dimension.
For this, I didn't use any hair products (apart from heat protection - ALWAYS use heat protection!) - just two hair ties and a straightening iron to create the curls. If you're wondering how I do this, you can watch my How To video here.
This is a super quick hair style that can be created in less than five minutes if you've already curled your hair, or around 15 minutes if you haven't. Check out the video below for the step-by-step tutorial!
