- Braided buns are a simple way to elevate your traditional bun hairstyle.

- These braided-bun tutorials will help make re-creating the hairstyle easier than ever.
A hair bun is one of the easiest go-to hairstyles for a lazy day. Don’t feel like blow drying? Throw it up in a bun. A few days past wash day? Dry shampoo and a high bun have your back. If the prospect of doing your hair for yet another Zoom call feels too overwhelming, a bun is the plain-white tee of hairstyles.
Not only that, but its versatility also means it works across all textures and preferences, depending on what you’re looking for. From messy buns for off-duty days to formal styles drenched in hairspray for a special occasion, you can customize it for any event you need. The best way to spruce up your everyday go-to, however, is to add braids.
Braided buns can deliver both an elevated and trendier take on the traditional bun hairstyle. Always adaptable, the style can be worn at weddings just as readily as it can be worn on vacation, and because buns are still the low-maintenance style that we know and love, a lot of braided buns only look better the longer that they’re worn.
Because we know how convenient it is to have a few go-to looks up your sleeve, we’ve rounded up some of the best braided-bun tutorials out there for when you need some quick inspiration.
