The Baby Bun Trend: How to Style the Perfect Mini Knot

It's time to give your messy bun a break.

Larger than life top knots are easy to embrace when you have long locks, but for girls with shorter cuts, the baby bun is where it's at. This cute style is effortlessly chic and looks amazing when worn in a number of ways.

 

The Classic Mini Bun

 

Worn by fashion bloggers and celebs alike, this classic mini bun is undone, casual and chic. If you have a short bob to a lob, you can quickly tie your hair into a baby bun. First loosely gather your hair on either side with your hands, securing it into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, and tucking the pony under to create the small bun. Allow any layers you have to fall out or secure them back with bobby pins for a more sophisticated style.

 

The Baby Bun with Bangs

 

If you have bangs, try wearing your baby bun at the crown like a mini top knot. This cute and feminine style is perfect for a night out dancing with friends or a casual day spent running errands. Use a brush to gather your hair just below the crown and tie your top knot with an elastic. Use bobby pins to keep any stray hairs in place at the nape of your neck or in your baby bun. Need it all to stay put day until night? Try L'Oréal Professionnel's Extreme Lacquer for strong, yet natural, hold all day long!

 

The Half-Up Baby Bun

 

If you have medium-length hair, try out the baby bun by embracing a half-up style. This mini bun looks great with sleek strands, as shown, and with curls and waves. To style brush the hair at the crown into a tight top knot and spray with a strong-hold hairspray to tame your roots.

 

A Colorful Mini Bun

 

From purple to blue to bright pink, #COLORFULHAIR is a trend that is going strong and what better way to showcase it than with a stylish baby bun. To get high-impact, colorful hair of your own, try#COLORFULHAIR from L'Oréal Professionnel.The in-salon direct dye color palettehas 1,000s of choices. We recommend Electric Purple for the brightest or with Crystal Clear to tone it down.
