Low Bun with Curly Strands and Golden Embellishment

We bet you just won’t go wrong with a hairstyle as charming as this one, bringing the best out of each and every strand of hair with the way they are tied up together. Standing out from a regular bun, this one creates an impression of individual curly bunches of hair being lined up together and twisted into a final bun. For added splendour, you add a bright sparkling hair clip in a golden hue looking like a branch of berries atop the bun. Turn your tresses into thick curls with a curling iron before you proceed with the steps to work up this style, making sure you leave down a few streaks flowing around the curve of your face, while tying the rest loosely to keep the curls intact.

15. Glorious Top Bun with Headband

Glorious Top Bun with Headband

Top buns often seem to be a regular phenomenon in the world of wedding hairstyles, but here’s a glorious version of the same that makes your tresses look all twisty and extraordinarily fluffy even if you haven’t got super long locks. A bun maker, a few bobby pins and a headband that can add final touches of decoration to your updo are all it takes to get started with the styling. The idea is to loosely comb hair from the front and the sides of the face upwards, further combing the back tresses too in the same direction so that all of them meet for a top bun. Once you have secured them together, you can place a headband sporting sparkling stones in silver and golden around the bun. Don’t pull back the hair too tight, so that the bun looks rightly messy, while leaving a few front flicks untied. Check out the below link by Koees to get your hands on this styling.
