High Bun:

FORMAL HAIRSTYLES FOR LONG HAIR1

Buns are the easiest of all hairstyles and while most people feel that they are informal, when made properly, they can give you a very formal look. Now, a high bun or tight chignon when done looks sophisticated and tight. It does not give you the messy look that you generally showcase when at home. The method is simple. Make a high pony, twist your hair in a knot and then fold the edges inside and use pins to hold down any unruly strands.

Low Chignon:

A high bun looks prim and proper. But you need really long straight hair to make it. if your hair is on the shorter side, you should go for the low chignon. Separate the top and lower half of your hair then pin the top half and pull the lower half in a messy knot. Take the pin off the upper half and tuck it in the lower bun. Tie loose strands up with pins.
