For some, gathered hair is the height of elegance, for others it's just a comfortable styling. Be that as it may, the bun on medium length hair is popular with millions of girls. We have collected a variety of options for this hairstyle, from everyday to festive. There are plenty to choose from!

Medium length bun

A curious fact: in 2023, girls with medium-length hair often look at the bun from polar opposite positions: either as a homemade “bun” (the most common choice when you need to quickly collect disheveled strands), or as a styling for solemn exit (solution for a wedding or anniversary).

We have nothing against an evening bun on medium-length hair, as well as against a morning bun, collected with your own hands before breakfast or exercise. But we consider it a mistake to limit ourselves to only these options when there is such a variety of interesting and stylish options that will be appropriate at work, on a date, and at a meeting with a friend in a cafe.

Make a bunch on medium length hair is quite simple. If you didn't succeed the first time, don't be upset: you just need to fill your hand.

Girls who remember how they once learned to draw arrows, and now they do it in seconds, will not let you lie: practice, practice and more practice.

And to inspire you to work out regularly, here are the benefits of a bun on medium hair. Why is this hairstyle good?

  • You can make it beautifully and quickly. Our assessment is supported by photos of beams that have collected hundreds of likes.

  • This hairstyle can complement a variety of looks. For example, if you are going on a holiday, a puffy puff on the top of your head will do. And when going to work, it is easy to collect medium-length hair in a neat bun around the neck, repeating the hairstyle in the photo.

  • She's versatile. There are no age restrictions for bunches - they look organic on girls, girls, and older ladies. Pigtail bundles look very impressive.

  • This hairstyle is comfortable to wear. If a classic ponytail on medium-length hair can interfere during sports, then such difficulties do not arise with a bun.

  • She never goes out of fashion. The curls collected at the back do not lose their relevance.

Who wouldn't this hairstyle suit?

You can relax: buns suit everyone, but it is important to take into account the features of appearance. For example, girls with an elongated face shape and medium-length hair are not recommended for slick styling and high buns at the top.

And the owners of a round face, on the contrary, should master the options with a bun peeking out from behind their heads.

Perhaps, it will be difficult to collect hair in a bun beautifully only for those who have not very thick hair, but if the curls have reached an average length, then you can try to collect a bun on a hairdresser's bagel. Success is almost guaranteed.
