A side swept bun can be a great way of styling the hair. It is a perfect choice of hairstyle if you are planning to attend any special event like wedding or any other formal party. To create this hairstyle, make sure that the length of the hair must be medium to long to get a dramatic look. This hairstyle was first started during the 1920s and it has been derived from a chignon. In this, the hair will be smoothed back to the nape of your neck and then pulled to the side.
To get this style, start your styling on a day old hair to get more hold. Use a flat iron is your hair is wavy or unruly. Then apply a little amount of shine serum all over the hair and spread it evenly using a hairbrush. Now create a deep side part on one side and the bun will be kept on the opposite side. Brush the entire hair to create a low ponytail on at opposite side of the front part. Sweep the bangs across the front of the forehead to create a ponytail and secure it with bobby pins. Next pull the ponytail downward and start twisting the hair which will make it coil around the base of the ponytail holder. Wrap it around the base of the ponytail and use bobby pins to secure it. Finally mist the hair medium-hold hairspray to secure your look.
