A Messy Bun of Hair - JuvaBun

Messy bun extensions are one of the most versatile hairstyles, appropriate at home, at work, on vacation, and even at a wedding. Let's learn how to create scruffy bun hairpieces by following simple instructions from professional stylists.

Who is the hairstyle for?

A bun is a hairstyle that suits almost everyone - both curly and straight-haired girls. Having picked up the desired model, you can correct the head's shape face and visually "stretch" the neck, and even make the figure slimmer.

Ideal candidates for a classic bun are girls of medium build with an oval face. Almost all possible hairstyle variations suit them. A high bun on top of the head with bangs, side strands, visually narrowing the face is suitable for a square face, and messy bun hair pieces with long oblique bangs that visually narrow the forehead and expand the chin for girls with a triangular face. With a large build, the bun can be voluminous (for example, created using a hair extensions bun or donut), while the styling itself should not be too smooth - a light bouffant is welcomed.

Any bun opens the neck, focusing on it. If the neck is long, this is a plus. But what if a girl cannot boast of such a feature? The way out is to make a low bun hairpiece: this will shift the neck's emphasis, visually lengthening it.
