Whether you're looking for lazy, messy hairstyles for summer, or a more formal look for prom or your BFFs wedding, prefer a low, chignon-inspired look with braids or a high ballerina bun, this collection of easy bun hairstyles for medium and long hair is for you! Step-by-step tutorials included!

I’m kinda, sorta obsessed with bun hairstyles.

Why?

Because they look best with second (or third!) day hair, they’re SUPER easy to do, and they compliment pretty much everything.

In my opinion, anyway.

So I’ve been skipping the shampoo and testing out a bunch of different bun hairstyles lately, and while it’s taking me LESS time to get ready each morning, I actually feel more stylish.

And since I know I’m not the only gal out there who likes to look good but doesn’t have a lot of spare time to sit in front of the mirror these days, today I’m sharing 10 of my favorite looks with you.

Oh! And you will notice a couple of the tutorials use a hair donut. I had no idea what this was prior to researching for this post, but after buying this 3-Piece Chignon Hair Donuts Ring Style Bun Maker Set by Beaute Galleria, my bun hairstyles look AMAZING!
