Quick fix: the Sleek Hair Bun


I struggle creating the large, rounded bun effect on my own head quite often. I love the look so much, and have been able to create lovely looking buns on others, but when it comes to myself its a bit of a dud. Enter Hair Trade's Sleek Hair Bun!

This beautiful, glossy bun has two simple glides attached inside of the bun, making attaching it a easy and quick process. I began by tying my hair up into my usual bun, then styling as I usually would by letting some loose waves fall around my face, then loosened up the hair around my bun and back combed to allow the glides something stable to hold on to. You then sit the sleek hair bun over your natural bun and slide the glides in underneath. With the braided bun like mine, it makes for a great laid back bohemian look.   

You could also try a more pulled back and tidy look, like Kim Kardashian often wears. She often wears her hair all pulled back with some volume created in the front. 

Overall, I love this bun! I think its such a fantastically easy way to create a beautiful look in a matter of minutes, and I'm really excited to try out some different looks with it! I will be sure to share them with you all ;)

  1. I'm curious as how all your hair fits inside that bun, mine certainly wouldn't but I'd love to give it a go. It looks gorgeous with the little plait bit on it too :)

    1. There is surprisingly a lot of space inside the bun, I think you could cram a lot of hair in there! haha!

  9. That's so clever! I would've been totally fooled if you hadn't included the bottom photo! It's such a good match to your hair colour, too. I wonder if they make one to match my hair that's in need of more highlights... haha! xx

  13. Looks great. I have always wanted to try one of these out but I was unsure how 'real' they would look! Lets just hope they look as good on blonde hair. X

  15. Hmmm I'm not sure about this one - love the style but think the bun looks a bit too perfect, shiny and tight. Prefer it a bit more backcombed and natural than this.

    But if its difficult to do with your hair and this offers the solution then its a good thing!

    Looks nice anyway, just not for me!

  21. I really like the design.

    human hair extensions is a very good tool to make you more beatiful.

    it would be your important "frend" in the daily life.
