Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a bun for school?

For a school hairstyle, a low bun is always a better option than a high one. It is less time-consuming and lasts longer. Comb your hair all the way back. If you have bangs, dry and style them before the rest of the hair. Make a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Divide the ponytail into two sections at the base, and twist them around each other. Wrap the twisted hair around the base and secure it with hair ties. Use clips to keep the bun and flyaways in place.
