This hairstyle is the perfect epitome of the laid-back vibe of summer. If this does not convert you to loving low buns, I don’t know what will. The messy low bun infuses romance and sophisticated elegance into one look. Be sure to let wisps of hair haphazardly fall out to capture the look. It’s also highly versatile because you can rock it with a swim suit as well as a long dress, gown, or any casual attire. If you don’t have the time to change your hairstyle from day to night, no need to worry; the bun transitions flawlessly well.

To style a messy low bun, start by applying a volumizing cream to the hair. Volume is critical for creating this look. Then, take a 1 ½ inch curling iron and form large curls on your hair. Brush through the curls using your fingers to soften the waves. Gather all of your hair and form a ponytail before you loop it one more time to create the low bun. Finish off with hairspray and take out small pieces of hair along the sides of the face for a soft, messy look.

If you have naturally curly hair this look will be a no-brainer, but curling tools are able to give most of you this look. One thing that gives this style it’s gorgeous look is the fact that it frames the face while giving an elegant, effortless touch to your overall look!

Prep your hair by applying a small amount of texturizing spray before styling. Then, use a one inch barrel curling iron to form ringlets and add definition to your curls. When you are done, gather your hair into a low ponytail and wrap it until you form a loose, low bun and pin in to place. For a more casual look, leave out a few strands around your face. Finish off your style with a shine serum.

If you prefer a low bun hairstyle that is romantic and ultra feminine, then this is the hairstyle for you. The addition of braids to the mix gives this bun extra glam appeal. And, looking all girlie and romantic is also the same qualities that make this an ideal look for summer.

To recreate this hairstyle, start by dividing your hair into two sections: the upper and lower part. Work with the upper section first and clip the lower part of the hair to keep it of the way. Secure the lower section into a ponytail and loop the hair around the base to form a bun. Divide the upper section and create a French braid on each side. When you reach the ends, go from French braiding to regular braiding. Secure the ends into the bun with bobby pins.

This is one hairstyle idea that you can try with a low bun if you want something that is classy and a bit more on the dressy side. And the most surprising part or this look is how easy it is to do!

Start by gathering your hair into a low ponytail on one side. Secure the ponytail with a clear elastic tie. Form the top layer of your hair into another ponytail (make sure it is directly above the first ponytail you created). Start teasing your ponytails to create more volume. Use your finger to comb through the ends in order to form a single ponytail. Wrap your locks around the base and pin to create a beautifully textured but glamorous side low bun.
