A woman with her hair turned up always looks as if she were going some place – either the opera or the bath.

The bun is so versatile. It can be a very sleek ballerina topknot or a sexily messy bun. A bun can highlight a long graceful neck, the face, the chin, the shoulders. It gives one an instant elegance.
It is also useful to just keep away the hair from hindering you in doing some chores, like gardening.
A bun is not just a bun! There are several styles that encapsulate a bun.
How to make a bun:
Comb your hair. Brush your hair to remove tangles. Finger comb your hair if creating a messy bun.
Pull your hair back. It is up to you how high it should stay. It can be a top bun, center of the back of your head or top of your nape. Make sure that you’ve grab all the strands of your hair in one pull.
Twist your hair into a knot. Take the entire handful of hair and twist it in the same direction, creating a rope-like piece. Then, wrap it onto itself to create a knot-like spiral. Secure with elastic band and some hairpins.
Finish the look. Use a strong hairspray to keep the hairstyle. Finally smoothen any loose ends.
You are good to go.
