Loose bun hairstyles are an excellent way of tying up your hair for that lazy relaxed look or when you just don’t care. There’s a bunch of ways to do these so we have scoured the internet to identify the top loose bun hairstyles that are out there. There are not special instruction here except to state the obvious:
- Loose buns will probably stay in place for a while but you should be ready for them to come undone. So I wouldn’t be going anywhere too formal to them or somewhere where I am moving about e.g. party or gym
- How long they stay in place depends a lot on how much hair you have and what type of hair it is. Clearly long silky hair is going to last a lot less time than thick South Indian hair. In fact with some hair types, if you leave them long enough, they will clot into a bun on their own. But a bob marley sadhu is probably not the look you are aiming for here.
