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. In recent years, this classic style has been replaced by top knots and high ponies. But this season, the low bun is back and better than ever. From the messy staple we know and love to accessory adorned, sleek, chic revamps, the low bun is this fall’s fave updo.
The low bun is best known for its messy-chic, one-and-done aesthetic. This look's a bit more intricate, but its still got that classic laidback vibe we know and love.
2. Ballerina Bun
This take on the low bun is prim, proper, and absolutely perfect. The metallic scrunchie adds just the right amount of fun to this sleek style.
3. Pretty Pins
That's right, the low bun can be edgy. This tousled, textured look is expertly glammed up with a unique set of metallic pins.
4. Hair Scarf
A hair scarf is the easiest way to put a little pop in any 'do. This patterned number is interesting and eye-catching, easily transforming a simple low bun from "I'll be indoors all day" to "catch me in Positano on a European vacay."

The low bun isn't just for lazy days. This versatile updo can easily transition from bedroom to ballroom with the help of an intricate braid.
