These 9 Photos Prove the Low Bun is the Chicest Style

Few styles have faded from view as quickly as the low bun. Typically reserved for the laziest of days, the low bun was once a low-maintenance go-to.

From the messy staple we know and love to the accessory adorned, sleek, chic revamps, the low bun is this fall’s fave updo. Scroll through our favorite low bun hairstyles below for all the inspiration you need!
