If you have short hair and are out of ideas to ‘do’ your hair, just relax. While most hair styles feature women with long tresses, those with short hair can have a lot of fun styling with their shorter version. Wondering how to put short hair in a bun? Relax!
While colour and cuts are a great way to enhance and change the look, let’s look at some interesting bun hairstyles for short hair:
1. Side Bun:
This is a very popular hair bun style for short hair. To get this look at home, comb hair at a side parting and gather all the hair on one side. Hold your hair in a low pony and tie it just above the ear. Now roll up all the hair and tie it up like a bun, keeping it low. If you have bangs, let them flow loose. Just make sure the bun is at the same side as your bangs.

2. Messy Back Bun:
This too is a simple bun that can be done easily at home and is quick to accomplish. Gather all your hair at the back like you would for a ponytail and tie it up in a bun, leaving it a bit loose at the bottom, letting the tips hang out of the bun. The idea is to not make it too tight. Leave your side and front bangs loose.
3. Low Neck Bun:
This is a very elegant look that will go great with off shoulders, halters, backless, low-back dresses and gowns, and is a great look for a classy party or even a special party with your girlfriends. Comb back your hair and gather all of it near the nape. At the back, take the hair little towards your left side and make a small bun, tying up the hair in the middle and leaving the length from mid to bottom very loose. Now gather the loose hair and pin it up in your hair with an elegant brooch or flowery accessory clip.
4. Braided Side Bun:
This is a really easy hair style that you can do in a few minutes. Gather all your hair at one side and make a braid towards the back. Once done, secure it firmly with an elastic. Now take the braid, roll it like you would roll up your hair for a bun and tie at the nape. Done!
5. Top Knot:
This is an eternal favourite in summers, especially if you’re always on the go. Comb your hair neatly and bunch it up at the top of your head. Roll all your hair into a tight bun and secure tightly with an elastic. Since this look is quite simple, make sure you add a dash of colour on your face and wear some simple accessories, otherwise it may look a bit dowdy.

6. Ballerina Bun:
Want some more twists than just doing a plain bun? Then ballerina bun for short hair is a great way to add some style and fun. Comb your hair and gather it from both ends just above your hair. Your hair should now be partitioned into an upper and a lower section. Take the upper portion to make a tight messy bun at the top back. Now make small sections from the hair that’s left over at the bottom back. Twist them up and pin them at the bottom of your tight bun.
7. Twisted Low Bun:
This is a favourite wedding hairstyle for those with short hair and also for the bridesmaids. Comb your hair to take out all the knots. Gather all of it at the back. Now twist the hair from the bottom and roll it up till where the middle part of your head is. Pin the twisted hair tightly at the middle back. If you think it’s still a bit loose, fasten it with a fashionable brooch.
8. Small Nape Bun:
If you have very very short hair but would still like to tie it up, comb your hair and make a side parting. Gather all the hair at the back, towards your nape, and tie into a tight bun. You can leave the little strands out, or if you want a really neat look, pin them in. This look will go great with smokey eyes and a nude/light lip look.

9. Side Pinned Bun:
This is a classy yet simple hair bun for short hair, and can simply be pinned in, rather than tied. To get this look at home, comb your hair loosely, letting your natural waves show. If you have bangs in the front or sides, you will like to keep them loose for this style. Pull all hair on one side and loosely roll them, pinning them up low, preferably at the back of your ear. This again, depends on your comfort, and if you feel it’s quite loose, you can lightly tie it up, adding a beautiful accessory in top.
10. Messy Loose Bun:
Comb your hair, letting your waves take centre stage. Gather all your hair very loosely upwards and tie it up in a loose bun, placing your hair in the middle of the back of your head.
