DIY Hair Bun Pin


There are few hairstyles more versatile and easy than a fast bun or a top-knot. As easy as it is to just throw your hair up and go, sometimes you want to look a bit more polished without adding too much time to your morning. For exactly that reason, we are in love with this simple DIY Hair Bun Pin. We love how it can transform even a messy bun or a simple ballerina bun into a cute pinned up hairstyle.

For our hair bun pin we decided to go with classic chiffon flowers and a beautiful white applique, thinking of a possible DIY wedding up-do or any light, summery look, but by simply swapping out the flowers or the color of the applique, we can see this easily taking on a dramatic night look. This DIY up-do bun accessory works great for any age – There are endless options with this no fuss hair accessory!

Supplies Needed:

Step One:

Thread your elastic through the teeth on one side of the hair comb and tie a tight knot at the base.

Step Two:

Hold the tail of your elastic with the base of the hair comb, so that as you wrap the base it will be covered by the wrapped elastic.  Tightly wrap the elastic around the base of the comb, feeding the elastic through approximately every other tooth of the comb.

Step Three:

Once you have reached the end, tie another tight knot and secure the tail of the knot in place with hot glue, using the tail to cover any exposed metal on the base of comb.

Step Four:

Cut a large felt circle in half. Align the straight edges of the felt with the base of the hair comb, with the straight edges of the felt lined up with bottom of the comb. The curved side of the felt will go up and away from the comb, forming a 90 degree angle, so the flowers and applique will sit up and off the head.
