Hair Tutorial: The Fun Bun

Review the following hair scenarios:

1.   You sometimes wake up super late for work {after one too many snoozes} with only enough time to throw your hair in a pony tail.
2.   Your hair is hopelessly frizzy within 5 minutes of being outside on a humid rainy day.
3.   You need a cute and quick new up-do. 

If any of those scenarios apply to you, you have to try the fun bun! All you need is 5 minutes, a teasing comb and some bobby pins.

You can make your bun as big and voluminous as you want.I have really thin hair, so the fun bun is the only bun that doesn't look super puny and awkward on me. I hope this tutorial makes sense. I promise it is super easy!

How to create the Fun Bun:

1. Pull your hair back into a high pony tail. 2. Split your pony tail up and down. Tease the front of the top half. 3. Flip top half towards your head and secure it with a bobby pin. 4. Take your remaining bottom half and tease it. Then flip it away from your head and secure with a bobby pin. 5. Pull sides together and pin. 6. Pin back any loose pieces of hair from the bun and lightly spray with hairspray.

Add a headband, or tie a scarf around your bun to make it extra fun!
Ta-da!

  1. I hope it's as easy to do as it looks. There are PLENTY of days where I am running late and end up braiding my hair and look like a slob.. I think this will be perfect. :)

  2. It looks similar to the sock bun! I haven't had much luck with the sock bun b/c I have sooooooo much hair. I'm def going to have to try this one out! xoxo

  5. Super cute. I have a slightly different variation of a bun, but I will try this one. I love that it's called the "fun bun" because I've been called out a few times for referring to so many things as "fun", lol. :)

  6. Love the bun! I do that so many times in the mornings when I'm running late. One of the perks of long hair! I wanted to let you know that my golden retriever, Charlee, loves the Barkbox. We got the first one last month & just wanted to thank you for getting us started!!!
