It’s a guy thing too! If you thought a bun is a girl thing, you are in for a surprise. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal shows what buns can do for a guy. Although, it’s not as elaborate as the way the ladies do, but it’s cool and chic nevertheless. To rock this look, all you need to do is pull back your hair into a ponytail. While tying it with an elastic band, don’t pull out your hair entirely in the last round. Let the end of your hair stay in the band, creating a bun-like effect.

Sidebun: Pick a side you want the bun to rest on. Then sweep all your hair to that side and tie it into a tight ponytail, just behind your ear. Grab a few strands of hair and tuck them into the band. Then take the last piece and wrap it around the hair so the band doesn’t show and pin it in place with a bobby pin. You can also directly twist your ponytail and wrap it up into a bun. Pin it in place and let a few strands of hair fall loose.

Sockbun: Cut the toes part off of a sock. Take its edges and roll it inside-out in a donut shape. Style your hair into a high or low ponytail, depending on where you want the bun to rest. Loop the end of your ponytail through the donut-shaped sock ring. Bend the hair over the edge of the sock, and tuck it under and through the bottom of the loop. Roll the sock down your ponytail, rolling your hair with it, till it reaches your head. Secure it with pins.

Poofbun: Part your hair by tracing the crown of your head. Within the crown area of hair, split your mane into two parts, with the back containing one-third of the hair. Hold the back section straight up and using a tease-comb, create a brisk, up-and-down motion. Lay the section down to form the base of your poof. Now comb the front section and secure it on the back using a hair spray or pins and make a bun of the remaining hair.

Move over plain Jane ponytail; add a dose of vintage glam to your look with interesting updos. A bun not only adds an element of style to your personality but also draws attention to your neck.
