Hi, I'm Michelle Simone and I'm a Hairstylist. And today, we're going to show you how to put a bun in your hair if you have short hair. So, the type of bun I'm going to do is more of a top knot and kind of a messy bun because with the, the shorter your, the shorter your hair, the harder it is to get all of your hair into a ponytail or into a bun. So, this is going to be more of a messy look and it's going to allow you to keep some of the back of your hair out of the bun. But, if you wanted it altogether, you can add more gel to your hair or more product in order to get your hair to stick a little bit better. So, I'm going to start by just brushing the hair altogether right towards the top because we want this to be kind of a cute modern top knot bun. And just get as much of the hair into it as you can and don't worry about the pieces that fall out. You can always pin them or add some product depending on how you like it. So, once you've collected the hair. try to position it where you want your bun to end up. I'm doing mine right at the crown of the head and as you can see, I'm leaving some of the hair out and then afterwards, I'll pin those pieces up. But, in order to make your bun, start with a ponytail; I like to use small rubber bands like this one especially for short hair because you have less hair to combine, and just tie it up. And then, one easy thing you can do to make your bun a little bit bigger and fuller when you have short hair or if you have really fine hair is to tease the hair in the ponytail before you twist it up and pin it. So, I'm taking my comb and I'm just going to quickly tease some of the hair, that's going to give it more body and hopefully, more staying power. So, if you're feeling adventurous, you could leave it at that. But, I'm going to take it and twist it up into a bun. Just collecting it, collecting the hair, give it a twist and wrap it around. Don't worry again about the pieces that fallout, you can easily pin them. So, I'm twisting it up and I like to use straight pins, but you can also use bobby pins and just pin it in towards the ponytail. Okay. So, once you have your bun in place, there's a few things you can do with the back hair. You can either use a bunch of gel or another strong hold hair product, or you can take the remaining pieces and just pin them up with a few bobby pins. Now, you probably have to do it in a few different layers to get all of your hair. And then that's it. I'm Michelle Simone and we just showed you how to put a bun in your hair with short hair.
