Two Buns Up Hair Tutorial

This is a very long overdue post :) This is a hair style I have had in pics on the blog over the last 2.5 years and I had been asked quite a few times for a tutorial and kept putting it off. It was mostly for a lack of having someone to take pics for me, but then the other day I decided I need to just start using some of my friends instead of waiting for someone to have time to help me. It’s a lot easier and less stressful that way for sure. So my kind friend Nina helped me out.

Back of my outfit

Let’s take a look back at some of the variations I have done. In the two pics above at my brothers wedding, I am wearing the two buns up style, but I have added a bump it and I parted my hair to the side when pulling it back.

In the pic with the green shirt, I have the two buns in the back, but I just twisted the front top part back before making the buns. In the other one above, I just have my hair pulled straight back but added a bump it and a headband. That being said, there are many things you can do to the front of your hair to add to the back part. It can be worn with casual clothing or even with fancy. I find it very versatile and perfect for those days you don’t have much time to do you hair but want it to look special :)

What you will need:
- 2 hair elastics
- bobby pins that match your hair color
-hair spray
-Optional: bump it, headband, etc…..

{PS you can find the bump its at places like Walgreens, Claires, etc.}

The first thing you will do if determine how you want the front. We kept it simple with Nina since she has beautiful bangs. If you are adding a bump it, you will want to do that first. Then make two pony tails right on top of each other. The top one should have more hair than the bottom one because you want that to be the bigger bun.

The bottom one needs less so it will be smaller than the top one once made.

Once we had her pony tails in place, we pulled some hair forward to create a little bump and pinned in place.

Then I took the hair in the top ponytail and twisted it around to make a bun. I bobby pinned it in place.

The thicker your hair is, the more dramatic the buns can be.

Then create a bun with the bottom ponytail and pin in place as well. Make them as messy or as neat as you like. Spritz them over with a little bit of hair spray and it’s as simple as that! You can even do this with your hair wet! (I have done that plenty of times ;)
