Hair buns are timeless. Whether it’s a perfectly messy top knot or an elegant braided up-do, this hairstyle definitely has a magnetic pull and tends to look attractive, regardless of how you choose to wear it.

However, hair buns are often difficult to create with short or medium length. People with hair extensions on the other hand, enjoy complete styling freedom, as the additional length and volume from extensions enables them to try on a number of different styles of buns.

Take a look at our list of some of the best bun hairstyles to try with hair extensions.

1. The Low Knot

This is perhaps the simplest bun hairstyle which you can recreate in minutes. Start off by applying smoothing serum to your hair. Once the serum is evenly spread, tie your hair up in a low ponytail, ideally an inch above the nape of your neck. Next, twist the pony tail into a bun and secure the ends with some bobby pins.

2. The Wet-Look Chignon

Chignon is one of the most chic hairstyles perfect for both formal and casual events. For a wet-look, start by combing a generous amount of hair gel or glossing spray of your choice. Next, gather your hair at the nape of your neck and tie them in a pony tail. Split the pony tail into two sections and tie them together in a knot. Pin any loose ends underneath the bun and you’re good to go.

3. The Braided Top Knot

This braided bun can be worn to festivals and outdoor parties as it keeps hair away from your face. Prepare your hair with a smoothing serum after which you can tie them in a high ponytail. Next, use the classic three strand method to braid your pony tail. Once the hair is completely braided, wrap it around the elastic to form a high bun. Secure the ends with pins.

4. The Braided Side Bun

This elegant hairstyle is more appropriate for events like weddings or proms. Begin by braiding your hair on the side and continue to braid diagonally until you reach the other end. Once the braid is complete, secure it with elastic and wrap the remaining hair near your ear to form a low side bun.
