Showcase your bridal style head to toe with the perfect wedding-worthy bun! Updos such as a bun are extremely popular among brides, as they keep your hair off your beautiful face and makeup, as well as complement your dress instead of taking attention away from it. In this video, Wedding Wingman Theresa Bullock of the Bridal Goddess shares five bun tutorials: chic chignon, modern twist bun, whimsical braided bun, elegant side bun, and romantic princess bun. In this video, learn how to prep the hair, smooth flyaways, and make that bun stay all day.
Chignon is a fancy term for a type of bun with hair wrapped under, and this look complements another piece of hair on top. The elegant and chic style features clean lines and smooth hair gathered at the nape of your neck. This look works especially well with a dress with a lot of detail to create a nice balance.
Modern Twist Bun
Embrace gorgeous texture with all the twists in this type of bun. The not too high, not too low bun keeps this style classic and complements a multitude of themes and dresses. This look works especially well with a flowy dress to continue the flowing look of your hair.
Whimsical Braided Bun
Calling all boho brides! The wild and free style features braids on each side coming together in a braided bun, with curls spilling out. Throughout your wedding day, it will become even more whimsical, as your hair will fall naturally in this messy style. This look works especially well for outdoor weddings and for brides wanting to feel like a goddess!
Elegant Side Bun
Showcase one side of your face with a chic take on a classic look. The swept-to-one-side style is all about elegance with its crisp and clean lines. This look works especially well with dresses with clean lines and structure, such as a satin dress.
Romantic Princess Bun
The ever-popular princess tresses bun is making a comeback! The high bun near the top of the head uses a hair donut for extra volume and gives you a lifted look. This romantic look is extremely versatile and works with a lot of dresses!
What You’ll Need:
1-inch curling iron
Extensions – Theresa chose to use clip-in extensions to add fullness to this look.
