Not long ago this simple hairstyle required quite a lot of time and fussing over with all kinds of styling tools: combs, hair nets, pins in different sizes, hair sticks, pens or pencils and elastic bands. Making the perfect hair bun is easier now than ever as there are plenty of hair bun tools. 

Moreover, men can use this hairstyle to hold their mane in place. David Beckham, world renowned footballist, was showing off his man bun hairstyle in 2010. This isn’t something out of the ordinary as in the past men used to wear this hairstyle in the battles (Chinese and Japanese soldiers).

Hair buns are commonly used by Sikh men daily, wrapped under their colorful turbans.

How to make a simple hair bun

Hair buns can be sleek and elegant or styled to look messy for a relaxed look. Some people like to have two or even three buns for a funkier effect.

Before starting to style your hair into a bun, the hair should be washed, dried and well brushed. By combing the hair  you would get rid of any knots or tangled areas as well as giving it a healthy glossy finish

Follow the brushing with pulling the hair back and grabbing it all in one hand. Hold the hair firmly on the top of your head or the head area you want to have your bun done. Secure your ponytail with an elastic band and then twist your hair and secure it with pins.

The easiest way to create a perfect hair bun is by using a hair bun tool. The perfect hair bun tool will allow you to create your hairstyle easily by twisting and gathering your ponytail in a doughnut shaped bun.

This method is great for school days when moms and dads are rushing with their little girls to get on time before the bell sounds at the beginning of the lessons.
