1. Start with your hair down, parted as you normally would. Since this is a plated hairstyle, the second or third day after shampooing works best with this style. Spray a little conditioning mist on the lengths to give them more shine and make them more malleable. A good alternative is to use a dab or two of leave-in conditioner to texture as light as possible.

2. Then use a soft bristle brush to straighten your hair and tie it into a low tight ponytail. Apply a little gel to smooth the hairs towards the head. In addition, it will give more hold to the final hairstyle.

3. We arrive at the key moment. Using your fingers to hold the ponytail in place, start twisting your hair around the base with your other hand. Twist, twist, twist, while pressing down with your thumb to hold the base steady. It may take a few tries, but don’t be discouraged! In the end, it’s by forging that you become a blacksmith, isn’t it?

4. When you’re happy with the result, secure the resulting bun with a regular ponytail elastic. You will probably notice a few hairs sticking out, but don’t worry too much as the problem can be easily corrected.

5. To tame flyaways, use a few loose pins and tie the disobedient hair around your bun. If it looks slightly off-center to the right or left, you can gently move it to the middle. Don’t worry, this easy low bun doesn’t have to be perfect to look chic!

6. Finally, perfect the hairstyle by spraying some strong hold hairspray, and voila!

Original hairstyle: easy and very artistic low bun

Start, as usual, with a low ponytail. If you have thin hair, you might want to treat it with your favorite texturizer first to give it a bit more volume. Then, divide the ponytail into four equal sections. Take the first section and pin it to the left of the base of the ponytail with a twist pin that matches your hair color.

Take the section on the opposite side and do the same on the right. Then take the top section and pin it just above the ponytail elastic. Now that all of your sections are pinned, grab the end of any section, twist it lightly, and create a loop. Pin its end in place with a bobby pin.

Repeat this same step with the rest of your sections, trying to keep all of the loops roughly the same size. Once you’ve pinned all of your sections, you can pull any section lightly to adjust its size and create the finished look. You can keep this easy low bun smooth and polished or let a few hairs fall to give it a somewhat messy look.

Easy low bun ideas for short hair

Rest assured, just because you have short hair doesn’t mean you have to give up the elegance and charisma that the low bun normally carries with you. A subtle trick is to use a kind of donut-shaped sponge specially designed to give the illusion of more volume and to facilitate the fixation of the strands.
