WARNING: Images are only for reference; they should be hidden later.
2. Identify the different components of the bun
The bun is made up of close-to-the-head sections of hair that are all pulled together, and then a section of hair that isn’t.
4. Repeat steps 3 and 4
Draw the shape of a bun, then adjust the contrasts to achieve a harmonic tonality, and repeat until the front part of the bun is complete.
5. Finalize the details
To make the bun look more realistic, add some individual hair and a few strokes with the kneaded eraser across the previously hatched background. Take a look at our guide on how to draw hair to see how small changes can make your hair look better.
6. Repeat the same procedure with the other area
Then move on to the final area where you want the hair to look like it’s been blow-dried.
7. How to draw a bun: Harmonize all parts of the hairdo
If the bun has any flaws, you can fix them in the next step by adjusting the length or direction of the hair; otherwise, you won’t need to make any more changes.
How to draw a messy bun: Minor Adjustments
