Use a thin-toothed comb always to style your medium length hair when they lack volume. Make a high twisted bun, but loosen the twists a little when you’re securing the bun.

Use hairpins instead of a rubber band to make the bun look puffy. Use hair spray in place of hair clips to secure any loose hair.


2. Space Buns with Curly Bangs

Creating a bun with long thick hair is quite easy but worry not. You can even make it for thin hair with medium length.

Simply part your hair into two equal halves, and make two buns on the side.  Curly bangs will help cover the visible scalp making the overall style even. Some artificial flowers will surely give heavenly vibes.


3. Half Up with A Headscarf
