Looking for a versatile and stylish hairstyle? Natural hair buns are a go-to choice for various occasions. Whether you want a polished look for the office, a chic style for a night out, or a simple yet elegant option for your daily routine, we’ve got you covered. We sat down with the renowned hairstylist Linda Miller, who will guide you on how to achieve the perfect natural hair bun for your hair type and face shape.

Selecting the Right Bun for Your Hair Type

Linda shares, “The key to a successful natural hair bun is to understand your hair type and texture.” If you have fine hair, a messy bun with added volume through backcombing or using a bun shaper can create the illusion of thicker hair. For curly and coily hair, embrace the texture and opt for a low, loose bun or a high puff.

Flattering Your Face Shape with the Right Bun Style

For those with medium to thick hair, a sleek, polished bun is an excellent choice. A great trick for fine hair is to backcomb the base of the ponytail to add volume. For curly and coily hair, finger comb your hair into a bun, allowing some pieces to fall out for a softer look.
