The bun is a popular all-rounder that quickly conjures up a pretty hairstyle even on a bad hair day. And best of all, depending on how you style it, it can flatter any face shape.
Bun hairstyles for every face shape
It is at least as iconic as the ponytail and super practical: the bun. In the meantime, the hairstyle has established itself as a real classic and is not only a frequently chosen hairstyle at home. The bun (as it is called in English) is suitable for almost every occasion because it can be styled classically severe, casually sporty, or messy. But did you know that some variants are real all-rounders because they flatter every face shape and perfectly emphasize their contours? You can find out here what they are and what you should consider when re-styling.
The accurately pinned-up ballerina bun is probably the most classic variant and looks super elegant. This is how it works: For the ballerina bun, you should pull back the front hair very strictly and as close as possible to the scalp. Then fasten the hair high up at the back of the head with a hair tie. Now take a bun cushion for extra volume and more stability. The tool also helps to make the bun look even and even more accurate at the end. Pull the hair lengths through the donut hole and spread them over the pillow. Pin everything neatly with bobby pins, done!
This is how the hairstyle affects the shape of the face: the strict ballerina bun slightly lifts the contours of the face and thus achieves a lifting effect. The contours look a bit more angular and the face more open because the hair is pulled back.
Nothing half and nothing whole - but that's exactly what we love! For the half bun, you simply divide your hair vertically into two halves. The top half (the top hair) becomes a bun at the back of the head, and the rest of the hair is left hanging. For a more chic look, you should work the bun neatly and elegantly curl the open hair or straighten it with a straightening iron. But the half bun is also a real eye-catcher when styled messy. A hair bow or a scrunchie give the hairstyle a playful twist.
This is how the hairstyle affects the shape of the face: Since the bun also leads upwards here, the contours are slightly lifted. Due to the loose hair, this bun variant looks less strict and a bit more playful. The lengths can be styled straight or curly, which makes the hairstyle so versatile.
Visually, the messy bun is exactly the opposite of a neat ballerina bun: untidy and stringy. Stay away from hair gel and hairspray, because the messy bun should look unwanted and undone. The look should convey that you just quickly tied your hair up with a hair tie. Loose strands are a must! The messy bun is particularly casual (and flattering) when worn at the nape of the neck. How to do it: Tie your hair loosely into a ponytail at the nape of your neck. Then twist the ends of your hair into a bun and secure everything with bobby pins. Finally, loosen and pull out a few strands.
This is how the hairstyle affects the shape of the face: the loose strands flatter the face and soften the contours. The position also accentuates the nape of the neck, making round faces look a bit longer if that's what you want. Either way, the hairstyle is simply a real eye-catcher and done quickly.
