4 Beautiful And Easy Natural Hair Buns To Save A Bad Hair Day

4 easy natural hair buns tutorialsYou know how it is, you find yourself with an important meeting on Thursday morning but the twist out you have been rocking since Monday is no longer fit for public display.

So what’s a girl to do when you’ve got an hour to make yourself look presentable? A bun of course! Buns have been the go-to style for many a woman running late for generations.

So much so that they have developed quite the reputation as a lazy girl’s hairstyle. There’s probably something to that too, I’m sure I’m not the only one who throws my hair into a messy bun (not the cute kind) when I’m just not in the mood to deal with it.

But buns are an excellent protective style for those targeting length retention and they are really cute too once you master your technique.

These 4 YouTube lovelies have some excellent tutorials on how to create some simple yet stunning buns on your natural hair.

Most of these take under 15 minutes to create which I’m sure you will agree is about all the time you have in the morning when you are rushing to get yourself ready for work.

Please allow an extra 10 minutes setting time if you decide to use gel for that extra sleek look.


1. Simple bun – Jenelle (BlakIzBeautyful) shows us how to get our buns layed. She has super thick natural type 4 hair and she manages to get it into this sleek simple bun so there’s hope for us all!

2. Elegant double rope bunNappy2bRisse created this stunning updo in about 11 minutes with some extra time to allow the edges to set. I think we can all agree that it’s absolutely stunning. Perhaps more suited for formal evening events but I would totally rock it to the office as well.

3. Top knot textured bun – Gone are the days of thin anorexic looking buns, you are natural now boo so work that texture! A donut bun maker ain’t got nothing on your kinks and curls so go on and create as massive a bun as you can using this simple technique from Mo Knows Hair

4. Textured high bun with bang detail – Love the high bun look but don’t have the time to mess around with gel? This bun from Gabe & Babe TV will be right up your street. It is very similar to the one above except for the bang detail created using a flat twist and of course the fact that a lot less gel is required to create it.

I hope you enjoyed those. I find that high buns are much easier to keep neat than low buns and I can wear mine for 4-5 days before I need to re-do it.

You just need to wrap your perimeter with a satin scarf at night , smooth any flyaways with a BBB in the morning and you are ready to go. What do you think of the buns ladies?
