That is a gorgeous low bun on my 4c natural hair and the best part is that it’s very simple!
Does the bun look familar? Remember another low bun I showed you in this post
It was this bun in the picture below
In that post, I explained that this bun was my protective hairstye in between braid outs to give my hair a break. I also said how I prepare my hair before doing this bun as a protective style so do check out my My Current Hairstyle Routine: Braid Out On Stretched Hair
The main difference between the two buns above is that with the first one, I used an elastic band which made the bun bigger while with the second one, I used a fancy multicoloured hair packer.
The steps are the same.
To clear up some things about this natural hair low bun first:
This natural hair low bun was only used as a protective style in the braid out case. Usually for me, this is an emergency hairstyle because it’s a very simple natural hairstyle to do.
Alright it’s also a lazy natural hairstyle, I have no shame in admitting it. Y’all know I love buns. I usually go for buns when I can’t start styling my hair in some fancy updo, I don’t want to stress out my hair, emergencies etc.
Of course whatever situation you decide to use this bun in depends entirely on you.
The steps are easy.
An elastic band and a hair clip.
I used this hair clip
So you first put your hair in a low puff with the elastic band, then you take the hair clip and pin your ends underneath. Like this
That’s it. Yes, it’s really that simple.
The key to this hairstyle in the case of the elastic band is putting your hair in a puff not a ponytail.
You can even try it right now or whenever your hair is down.
You know I always love to hear back from you here or via email 😉
