What's worse than seeing a perfectly-sculpted messy bun on Pinterest, only to test it out on yourself and realize yours looks like more like deformed thumb than a trendy updo? Nothing... Absolutely nothing is worse. Bun hairstyles are supposed to look effortless, but more often than not, they are the most time-consuming, frustrating styles to accomplish. We get it, but it doesn't have to be that way. Follow along with us as we show you just how to replicate these adorable bun hairstyles, sharing with you all our secrets and the products you'll need to make it happen.

Loose Chignon

The key to this low bun hairstyle is the texture. You'll want to "rough up" your hair with a texturizing product, whether it be a spray or a powder. Once your hair has that grit from the product, you'll want to use your hands (not a comb!) to pull your hair into a low pony.

For ladies with fine or short hair: Tease the ponytail to give it extra volume before you wrap it into a bun and secure in place with bobby pins. If it looks too neat, gently pull out pieces of hair to acheive that tousled, carefree look.

Sleek Top Knot

This sleek updo is perfect for any occasion, from a shopping day to a formal event. To pull it off, you'll want to catch your hair on a day where frizz is at bay. If split ends and frizz are constants in your life, use a shine serum to tame them. After applying the product (a little goes a long way!) all over, take a boar bristle brush and pull hair up into a super high pony. Then, wrap hair tightly into a top knot and secure loose ends into the hair tie and with bobby pins.

All hair types and lengths can achieve this hairstyle, and you can customize it however you'd like. First, style your hair as usual (soft waves look great with this bun hairstyle) and part as close to the center of your head as you're comfortable with. Then, separate two sections where the buns will go tie into ponytails with clear elastics. Finish this style by wrapping the hair into buns and securing the ends inside the elastics.

There's little styling involved with this look, so as long as you know how to braid or fishtail, you can pull this one off. Simply section off the front part of your hair for the braid, and pull the remaining hair into a loose, low bun. (A scrunchie works great and looks adorable.) Then, braid the sectioned chunk of hair to the ends and secure with a clear elastic. Take the end of the braid and hide it underneath the bun. To get that romantic, feminine touch, add a few curls to the face-framing pieces in the front.

Take your favorite scrunchie or bandana and loop the ponytail into a bun.

If you've ever attempted a messy bun, you know they rarely every turn out this perfect. But when they do? It's a good day. A few quick tips to increase your chances of making it happen: Use lots of dry shampoo to give your hair the grit it needs to stay in an updo. Add hair extensions for length and thickness. Curl your hair first before pulling it up. And lastly, try teasing a ponytail before wrapping it into bun - you'll have more control over its form that way.

Tucked Under Bun Hairstyle

This elegant bun hairstyle is ideal for weddings, prom, or other formal events. There are a couple of different ways to make it happen, but our favorite technique starts with a headband. Start by applying a texturizing spray or powder, which will give your hair the extra grip it needs for this style to stay in place. Then, put the headband on - placed on top of your head, over the hair, and onto the nape. Start covering the headband with hair by tucking the hair into the headband towards the back of your head. Continue to do this until the ends are secured in the headband.

For voluptuous curls like these, it's best to leave it to the experts - and by that we mean hair extensions (unless you were blessed with natural waist-length, thick locks). Once you've applied styled your hair the way you like, section the top half and pull it into a high pony. Leave a few face-framing pieces out. Then, wrap the pony in a circular motion to create a bun, and tuck the ends into the ponytail. Using your fingers, pull the bun to loosen it and make it bigger. Once it's the size you'd like, pin it in place with bobbypins and mist with a light hairspray.

The secret behind perfect soft waves like these? A good texturizing product and curling wand. Start with clean, dry hair. You can use any curling wand, but we love the Beach Waver for this look. Once you've curled your hair, run through it with a wide tooth comb and mist with texture spray. Then, pull the top half up and loop hair into a giant bun. If you'd like, braid a few of the curled pieces (as pictured), and secure the ends with clear elastics.

To replicate this romantic wedding hairstyle (perfect for prom and other formal events, too!), you'll need to start with clean, blown-dry hair.

Optional: Wrap hair extension wefts around the base of the ponytail first to achieve a fuller, thicker-looking bun. Hide the wefts by wrapping hair into a bun and pinning overtop the wefts.

Finish off by adding in the floral hair piece of your choice!
