A bun is basically a chignon worn low on the back of the head. The word “chignon” comes from the French phrase “chignon du cou,” which means nape of the neck.
Buns are also a protective hairstyle. A protective hairstyle is a style that you wear when you want to give your hair a break.
Protective styles require very minimal manipulation, which is essential to helping to grow.
Today’s buns can be funky or elegant. Whatever your flavor.
